Hi, I think there are some (or many!) functions and plugins you could consider.

Since you have "no plugin installed", I introduce our home page (Login Top) as an example, or a starting point .
Below is the sample figure.
  • Left section is a Wiki-based text. This function is standard in Redmine.
  • A very useful plugin "Redmine Wiki List" is used to list up issues in Wiki (left section).
    • Our example show the listing of issues of (1) Flagged by the management and (2) Due date is near or past, and the open issues are assigned to the login user.
    • You could make your own listing criteria with Custom Queries.
  • Right section is the latest news section.

Notes:
  1. Redmine Wiki List plugin is located at https://github.com/tkusukawa/redmine_wiki_lists .
  2. We use Japanese in Redmine (, as you may see in the picture :-) ).
  3. Redmine used was rather old, 3.1.1.
  4. The picture above derived from the English translation draft of the presentation, "「CODAの定義・運用の現在 - 2017年版 -」" (redmine.tokyo Study Event Number 13) at https://www.jss.jaxa.jp/about_coda/

Hi thx for your answers, but I dont really understand your answers and how to integrate it.
I need this all to see on the home-page for guests - not for logged users.

Left section is a Wiki-based text. This function is standard in Redmine.
-> where can I activate this to show on homepage

Right section is the latest news section.
-> where can I activate this to show on homepage

thx for help

I think it would be helpful to tell us what exactly you would like to show you users.

Under Administration -> Settings you can edit the welcome text. That's the text which is shown on the left side of the welcome page.

Right section is the latest news section.

The latest news section becomes visible when there are news the user is allowed to see. So all you have to do is writing a news article in a project of your choice and it will come up on the welcome page.

If you need such ones on Redmine, one idea is to
  1. make a Wiki page which should contain what you want to list, and
  2. make the Wiki page as the start page.
    Redmine Start page could be changed with the plugin "redmine_startpage", at https://github.com/gatATAC/redmine_startpage .
    Although the plugin is old, but there may be a merged patch to make it work with Redmine v4 at https://github.com/gatATAC/redmine_startpage/pull/17 .

If interested, please have a try.
Please be noted: I don't installed this plugin on my environment. Please do not ask me for its use.
