Subject [jira] (MPIR-256) "About" report generated even though index.apt is available in "generated-site"
Date Thu, 18 Oct 2012 07:30:37 GMT


Myron commented on MPIR-256:

I second that request (came across the same issues days ago)

Maybe we could express this more globally:
First the target/generated-site/* should be rendered, then then the src/site/*, and if there's
still no index, then generate this aswell.

eg: if i have a generated-site/apt/test.apt AND a site/apt/test.apt, the src variant is always
rendered first, making the generated one useless.
IMHO, the generated ones should always have precedence... (for all files, not only for index)

automatically (e.g. copied from somewhere) during `pre-site` phase. maven-site-plugin allows
specifying an additional `generatedSiteDirectory` parameter for these files (see

When you run `mvn site`, it will still display the default "About" page. As an example that
`generatedSiteDirectory` works, I also copy the same file to index-copy.apt and an index-copy.html
is generated correctly.
