Yes, I believe so. My main page has a redirect. If I type in
https://www.familytreedna.com/public/goodwin
Then it automatically goes to
https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/goodwin/about/background

However, the Y-DNA results (colorized) still has "public" and not "groups" in the web address, so this is the same
https://www.familytreedna.com/public/goodwin?iframe=ycolorized

There is a page in the new MyGroups for "Links" and there is a section of "migrated links" - these are links to the main page, the y results and our patriarchs page on WorldFamilies.net. These were not updated to groups pages, but I can change the addresses to the new groups pages. Or I can leave them as they are (which is what I have done) and they automatically redirect to the mygroups site addresses.

I hope this answers your questions?

Is there a way to set the default page to the "About Section"
No one in my projects use the Activity Feed, and it doesnt tell anyoe anything about the project if they are first time users.
Id rather have the About section shown first.

Hi rivergirl,

I don't have an answer on this. If anyone else can chime in it would be great. If not I would recommend sending a question to groups@ftdna.com and Janine would be able to answer or direct your question.

If you disable the Activity Feed, About is the default.

Unfortunately that doesn't help those of us who want to have "About" as default but still allow activity.

Maybe the administrators of the Polish project could share with us how they did that :-)

When entering https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/polish/ one gets to https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/polish/about while https://www.familytreedna.com/groups.../activity-feed is still operational.

The About Page IS the default page now if you are not logged in.

Thanks Ginger,

But if new project members loggin into their page and land on the Activity Feed, they maybe missing pages in the "About Section" where I post information on New results and lineages, aswell as have an explanation about the website and different pages.

As no one has been using the Activity Feed, Id rather have the About Section as Default.
I could turn off the Feed, but I would like to give members the oportunity to use it.
