Default to Front Page

When I type in the subdomain URL for my campaign on a PC browser, it takes me to my campaign's Front Page. When I type in the subdomain URL for my campaign on a smartphone, however, it takes me to my campaign's Dashboard. Can you please build in an option to set the default page (to Front Page, Dashboard or something else) on all devices?

    Not sure why that is happening for you, if I have logged into my campaign, then leave the page and come back to it later on both the PC and smartphone, I get the front page, not the dashboard.

    Now, if I'm not logged in and I go to the subdomain URL for my campaign, once I login, then I'm on the dashboard.

    It depends if you are logged in or not. If your are logged in it defaults to your dashboard but if you are not it goes to the front page.

    Well, I have a private campaign, so I can't visit it at all unless I'm logged in.

    This is ridiculous. I don't see why one platform should default to a different campaign page than another.

    When you use the smartphone are you requesting the desktop version or the mobile version? Anytime you start involving mobile versions of sites things can get interesting. 

    Also I can not seem to replicate this problem. If I type the address for my main page into either browser type I get the front page. If I click on it using obsidian portal navigation I get my dashboard since I am logged in and this is supposed to be your landing page when you are looking at your campaign so you can manage it.

    If I type www.obsidianportal.com into my PC web browser, I get the dashboard. But if I type chaos-muppets.obsidianportal.com, which is the subdomain for my campaign, I get the front page, which is what I want.

    When I use the OP phone app, though, I'm not given a choice. It just takes me directly to the dashboard.

    The dashboard is SUPPOSED to be your landing page when you are signed in. So when you typed the address of your homepage it takes you to your homepage since that is the url for the homepage but when you are using your phone app (side note what browser are you using on your phone?) you are signed in so it is taking you to your dashboard. Does this make sense?

    As a note your front page is more for other people to see when they come to your website. Think of it as a book cover. Your dashboard is where you go to make new pages, change settings, etc so that is why OP directs you there. I hope this helps

    But I don't want to be directed there. I want the Front Page. That's the feature I'm asking for. Let me decide.

    Not a perfect solution but you could always bookmark the front page on your browser that way you could just click your bookmark to get the front page? Again not a perfect solution but should at least address the problem in the short term. Considering the current case load of issues to fix and features to get finished I wouldn't expect this to be a very high priority for them. 

    Sorry for not understanding the problem earlier and hopefully we (The OP Community) can help you with anything else.
