Disabling the dashboard
Not a big fan of the initial nextcloud landing page (it shows weather and what not, not sure why). I just want to view my files.
Wanted to post this tip on fixing that:
- Add this to
/app/data/config/config.phpto make files the default app:
'defaultapp' => 'files',
- You can also run this in a web terminal to remove it altogether (it will go away from the navbar):
sudo -u www-data php -f /app/code/occ app:disable dashboard
I don't know if disabling the dashboard is safe, so maybe I am living dangerously.

@girish I've installed a Nextcloud app (risky too, I know) that let's users choose the order of apps in the menu, and whether or not to show or hide apps from the menu. Seems to work.
I thought it might do this too, but looking again it doesn't look like it does, so now I'm kinda off topic but hey ho

@girish I’ve disabled this „app“, too, it’s all good.

@girish disabling the dashboard is entirely fine. You can even do it through the Web UI apps settings. In fact I've disabled the dashboard on most of my NC instances ever since it was put as the default landing page as i don't find it particularly useful.
Thanks for the tip though. Useful to land to directly Files, while keeping the dashboard enabled.

@jdaviescoates Yup, AppOrder add-on does this nicely for me too.
I've disabled the front page as well, but in a slightly different manner.
If your the Admin Account, go to the upper right hand corner, drop down the menu, and click on Apps, you can turn off all of the front page stuff (they are all various apps).
Bit more work than doing this though.
