· Allows you to specify a custom front page based on role type. e.g. For a musicians website, you could have a different front page for Drummers, Guitarists, Singers, Bass Players etc.
· Allows you to have a FULL front page or SPLASH page - a completely different layout to your main drupal site - or alternatively as a THEMED full page, i.e. it loads with your default drupal site theme & layout.
· Automatically REDIRECT users to a specific page or path.
· Disable your site for everyone but Administrators and display a custom "under maintenance" message.
· Display a custom "mission" style message for authenticated users who have not visited the site for a set period. e.g. If you have had a significant update to the site, you might want to have a special notice for users who haven't visited for 1 month, or 1 week etc.
· Override your HOME and Breadcrumb links on your site. e.g. you might have a splash front page that you don't want visitors already on your site returning to when they
· click on HOME.
