It would be nice to have a Welcome page that is shown when QGIS is run for the first time. It would replace the canvas, or be shown as a tab beside the canvas.

The idea is to use a web view to show a nice HTML page which includes stuff as:

  • Recent projects, with the ability to open.
  • A What's New section
  • Latest and Top plugins
  • etc

Refs #7626


#1 Updated by Regis Haubourg over 8 years ago

Hi guys,
here on 64 bits windows, Welcom page is there but remains empty, either for news and recent projects.
I tested the influence ou --configpath option with no success. Any idea?
Snapshots of recent projects are saved in profile..

#2 Updated by Regis Haubourg over 8 years ago

Tested again on 6bf5e91, welcome page does not display anymore. General options are set to Welcome page.

#3 Updated by Alexander Bruy over 8 years ago

  • Resolution set to fixed/implemented
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Closing, as welcome page already implemented. Reopen if necessary
