In eclipse welcome screen we have the following pages:
* overview
* firststeps
* tutorials
* samples
* whatsnew
* migrate
* webresources

Apart from those pages need to add my own page, is it possible. I tried out using my own introContent.xml file, but its not working.

Please suggest the way to do so

Thanks in advance.......

Those pages are predefined and will contain links to one another. You can add more pages using the org.eclipse.ui.intro.configExtension extension point but the predefined pages will not contain links to the added pages.

Thank you Chris......

You mean to say that we can't add new pages along with existing pages, but i need to add the page link in the root page and the functionality of created page should be as similar to predefined pages.

Is there any other way of doing this.

The other way of doing this would be to create your own intro configuration instead of using Universal Intro. Creating your own configuration is more work but it allows you to create whatever pages you want. Universal Intro is more convenient but less flexible in that it has a number of predefined pages where you can add contributions but there is no extension mechanism to add another page which acts just like the predefined pages whatsnew, firststeps, tutorials etc.
