CS2008 Nuglet: Restoring CS2007 welcome page behavior

I’m way behind on my Community Server forums reading, so this has probably been covered.  Community Server 2008 displays a personalized home page for registered users.  Anonymous and users not logged-in see the welcome page.  Below is the new personalized home page on a virginal CS2008 site.

 

On a client CS2008 site I’m theming and configuring we want all users to see the welcome page all the time, like in prior versions of Community Server.   I was thinking I’d have to do something tricky, but fortunately the CS Core Team (who are trickier than me) provided a simple checkbox to do the job.  Nice.

A long time developer, I was an early adopter of Linux in the mid-90's for a few years until I entered corporate environments and worked with Microsoft technologies like ASP, then .NET. In 2008 I released Sueetie, an Online Community Platform built in .NET. In late 2012 I returned to my Linux roots and locked in on Java development. Much of my work is available on GitHub.
