Customizing the localhost homepage

Postby akurtula » 14. March 2011 23:28

Hi

I recently installed feedly, which turns the list of google reader feeds into a magazine look (fantastic)

So is there a way to customize the localhost homepage (of course it would not be as cool as feedly but more accessible)?

This is the page I am talking about:

I know the original version was the orange page (but it had the same: just a links page)

At least, is their a way to change to padding and font size (and maybe the folder facons into the websites facon)

Thanks a lot

Sure, you can change the whole page if you want to (and have the knowledge to do so).
The sources are all inside your \xampp\htdocs\xampp folder.

Have fun :)

That really depends on what the result should be and what knowledge you already have.

I just checked around the folder.

i tried to Delete xampp.css and nothing changed, so is not as easy as I thought :)

Do you know which of the page is concerned for the structure of the root page (shown on the image above) - because that is the only thing I need to change (also I am thinking of changing the look - so only css work)

By the way, are there ready made "themes" on this matter

The Image in your first post just shows a DirectoryIndex.
That has nothing to do with that what is showing in a default XAMPP installation without any changes.

The DirectoryIndex can be configured in the Apache config.
Because i don't use this listing much (and if, i leave it as it is in default) others can say something more to this.

What you see is a directory listing, you cant really change the look of that. It's showing that because you deleted the file index.html you can make a new one if you know anything about writing html.

It is not that important.

WHat do you think is important on that page view?
This index is only shown, if your Apache can't find any of his default files (index.html, index.php, default.html, etc).
Thats maybe the case in css folders, but do you want to index them?

The only case where this maybe makes sense for somebody is on image folders.

I don't use the index and disable it on my webhosts.
