SocialEngine 4: Smooth Landing Page

Are you fed up with boring landing pages for your Social Engine?

Well here is how to make your landing page look nice and smooth

To make yours like this follow the steps below

Delete all widgets from the landing page and add an html block just like this

Add in that block this code

en4.core.language.addData({"now":"now","in a few seconds":"in a few seconds","a few seconds ago":"a few seconds ago","%s minute ago":["%s minute ago","%s minutes ago"],"in %s minute":["in %s minute","in %s minutes"],"%s hour ago":["%s hour ago","%s hours ago"],"in %s hour":["in %s hour","in %s hours"],"%s at %s":"%s at %s"});    //]]>

              <input type="hidden" name="remember" value="">
              <input type="checkbox" name="remember" id="remember" value="1" tabindex="4">
              <label for="remember" style="white-space:nowrap;line-height:18px;">Remember Me</label>



        $$('head link[rel=stylesheet]').each(function(obj){ var t=(obj.href+'').indexOf('theme.css', 0); if(t){ $(obj).dispose(); } });
        var metaIE = new Element('meta', {
          'http-equiv': 'X-UA-Compatible',
          'content': 'IE-edge'
        $$('head').each(function(obj){ obj.grab(metaIE); });

Now save all that and extract the files in the attachments in your site folder and your good to go
