    Splash page on one site of multi-site install

    I want to serve a splash page before entering one of two sites that are part of the same 4.5.2 install on IIS7.  Because I only want to do this for one site I can't just add a 'Default.htm' to be served before 'Default.aspx' because it will be served for both sites.  Has anyone tried to solve this problem before?

    Are you using the manage Hostname option to attach the host names to the sites?

    Why dont you just have the splash as the first node in site 1?   The sites should not effect one another if you have the flag

    false

    Set in the /config/umbracosettings.config file.

    So you structure should look something like this.

    +Content
       |
       +--Splash
       |    |
       |    +Site 1 homepage
       |
       +--Site 2 Homepage

    Peter´s solution seems to be the way ot go here. Or you could try to convince the customer it´s bad practise using splash pages. I my self find them terribly annoying and I don´t think I´m alone...

    Yes, I'm using 'Manage Hostname's for each site's root node.  Did you mean to say that the sites should not affect each other if 'useDomainPrefixes = true', not false?

    So after moving Site 1 under the Splash page I have to add the Hostname settings to the Splash page and that's it?  Do I need to remove them from Site 1 root node?

    Christer, I DID tell them how bad an idea I thought it was to have a splash page, after all, they are already in complete control of the site content and can put the 'ad' front and center if they want.

    Thanks guys.
