WebRiva add to home screen fix - NishanF - 11-14-2020

Dean,

Looked a bit futher into why the "add to home screen" function didn't always work correctly, and the workaround noted here is necessary:

These two posts provided the answer:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/52328733/pwa-loses-its-params-and-query-params-after-being-added-to-the-home-screen
https://web.dev/add-manifest/

The start_url entry in the manifest.json file in the WebRiva root directory simply needs to be removed...everything seems to work great afterwards.
Also, you might want to consider adding an icon entry to the manifest file as well.

hope this helps,

Nishan
