#13295 closed Bug Report - General (fixed)

Frontend Startup Screen irritates some users.

Description

The waiting for database screen is fairly new and VERY irritating. I see it on every boot on my parents box with a combined FE/BE using an old Mythbuntu setup. It happens when the FE starts marginally faster than the BE. I did mention it to Peter and he said it was working how it was designed to work

What's worse is the way when the FE starts, takes over the screen, but does not draw anything for a few seconds.

Fix for this problem

comment:2 Changed 5 months ago by Peter Bennett

This patch adds a setting in frontend setup Setup->Appearance->Theme/Screen? Settings->Startup Screen Delay It takes a value in seconds, defaults to 2 To prevent from ever seeing the startup screen, Select "Never show startup screen" To always show the startup screen select 0 To show the startup screen only if startup takes longer than 20 secinds select 20.

Note that if the backend or database is still down after about 60 seconds, the startup screen will show regardless of the setting, so that the user can fix the database setup or select retry.
