Standard Welcome page contains a few predefined root pages - Overview, First Steps, Tutorials, Samples, What's New, Web Resources, Migrate.
By default, only Overview, Tutorials, Samples, What's New are visible

Two questions:
- can I create custom root page ?
- can I make it visible by default?

Thanks in advance,
Andrey

Use the extension point <extension id="xyz" point="org.eclipse.core.runtime.products">. This allows to set various properties
<property
name="introTitle"
value="%productIntroTitle"/>
<property
name="introBrandingImage"
value="product:icons/nologo.gif"/>
<property
name="introBrandingImageText"
value="%productIntroBrandingText"/>
<property
name="introDescription-overview"
value="%introDescription-overview"/>
<property
name="introDescription-tutorials"
value="%introDescription-tutorials"/>
<property
name="introDescription-samples"
value="%introDescription-samples"/>
<property
name="introDescription-whatsnew"
value="%introDescription-whatsnew"/>


and with product_customization.ini and properties like

# Welcome theme to use
org.eclipse.ui.intro/INTRO_THEME = com.mycompany.eclipse.intro.theme2


you can customize the intro.

Thank you for the answer.

Still unclear how to override the standard Welcome.
I mean that I have a plug-in that works within the Eclipse, not RCP app.

That's hard.
It would break the old rule: contribute, not replace.
If you are using the product org.eclipse.sdk.ide (which is the default for Eclipse SDK), you can only contribute to the welcome page, not replace it.

Yep, that's exactly what I found and just wanted to make sure that I didn't miss something.

Thank you again.
