I have a WebTemplate using a team site as BaseTemplate, and was wondring how I could set the default page as home page instead of the home.aspx page and this during the provisioning process of the site so through a feature?

Thanks in advance!


Okay, to set the home page for a given site in a feature receiver should be something like:

SPWeb web = properties.Feature.Parent as SPWeb;

if( web != null ) 
SPFolder rootFolder = web.RootFolder; 
rootFolder.WelcomePage = "UrlToMyPage.aspx";

Use that in FeatureActivated to set the home page in a feature.
