1. goto your 'healthy food' page and click 'save page as' - save it as 'index'

2. It will say "this page already exsists" - just clcik ok

3. Go back to the original healthy food page and delete it.

4. Think about if you have links in the site which used to link to the healthy food page and change them to link to index.

PS> You will lose your home page content.

If you want to keep it first go to the original home page and use save page as to save it as something else.

Hi Mishmo,

These are the steps to turn your existing homepage into a blog page on your website.

1. If you would like to keep the current index page, click on the down-arrow next to "Save" and select "Save As" to save the page with a new name.
2. Click on "New Page".
3. Name the page "index" and select the "Blog Page" option.

You will get a message telling you that your index page already exists and asking if you want to overwrite it. Say "yes". This will replace your current index page with a blog page and your site will start on your blog page.

Please Note While this method allows you to turn a new, blank blog page into your homepage page, it is not possible to transfer a developed blog page with content onto your homepage.

Hi Ruth,
I think her home page is currently a blog page. Is there a way she can make her healthy food page (blog page) into the index?

Hi Lee,

The page that she is calling home, is indeed a blog page, but it is not her index page (the page that people land on when they visit the site). It seems that Mishmo has installed two blog pages on her site.

Unfortunately, it's not possible to turn a blog page with content on it into the index page.

I think her index page is a blog http://www.michellesfoodandhealthsite...
looks like one to me.
What if she deleted both the other pages... or can you not delete a index page - i forget.

She has two pages that are blogs. Why don't we wait for Mishmo to come back to us before we speculate further on this.

Yeah Duke is right that one is the index page.
I deleted the index page but then then 'home' page
got made automatically- i think it doesn't allow
you to not have one.
