Looking for a plugin... (4 posts)

    I am looking for a plugin that will, based on a schedule, change the homepage(start page) to a different page on the site.

    for example: say for one hour on Sunday mornings I want the homepage (the start page) to be a page on our site where a live video feed is displayed. After the hour is up, it will revert back to the normal start page.

    As it is I can do this manually of course, but I have been searching and searching for a plugin that would add this capability to the site. Basically in the page editor screen, an additional set of options would be added that would allow a user to schedule the page to "Display as Start Page" on a schedule.

    Hi

    not sure there is a plugin to do what you want, I've not seen one befoer but you may be interested in this discussion.

    With a bit of tinkering you should be able to put together a home.php page template that will have a section that appears during the hours on Sunday that displays your video feed.

    actually thinking about it, it will probably be much easier for you to use a rewrite in your htaccess file that will send visitors to your home page to your video feed page between the times that you want.
