[rt-users] Question about having a "splash" page?

I am no guru but the directory /opt/rt3/local/html is where you want to keep your local copies of RT files. RT looks there first for files. At first glance it looks easy to just create a new copy of the RT Index page under a new name in /opt/rt3/local/html and then create your splash page named index.html. The problem comes into the later pages where the link for "Home" is. This may cause some issues since it will get sent back to your splash page. 

Or wouldn't it work to have a link at http://rt.domain.com and then that redirects you to https://rt.domain.com? I have seen this done with sites that host emails.

I'm trying to create a "splash" page for RT.  What I mean by splash page is this... basically a page that has 2 links:  one link to our custom web ticket entry page, and one to actually log in to RT.
We currently are using RT 3.6.1 and have it's domain as https://rt.domain.com.  For submitting a ticket I would like the user to be able to go to https://rt.domain.com and click on the link for submitting a ticket from the splash page.  If they actually would like to log in they would just click on the link from the splash page and get to the RT login prompt.
Any one know how to do this?  I'm not sure if it's something that I can do in httpd.conf or not.  I tried it a little bit ago, but didn't get it to work correctly.  I don't know that much about the web configuration stuff so that's why I'm asking the user list.  I'm hoping someone has done this before, or can at least point me in the right direction.
Any help is appreciated.
Back to work after baby*how do you know when you’re ready?
