I would like a different page on my site to now be my index page. I saw the same topic listed 3 months go with this answer from Yola:

"It would appear that you're trying to give your new page a same name that is already existing in your list of pages. Normally, you would be able to overwrite the page but unfortunately, a bug has cropped up where you are not able to do this. We apologize for this.

Usually, we can offer a workaround but as the index page cannot be deleted, this means overwriting your index page is not possible right now."

Has there been any change yet?

if you click save as on your index page and rename it something else then re name your desired homepage to index it will change and you will have your old one =)

does that help?

Hello Katie,
The page called "index" in the Sitebuilder is your default home page and the first page your site will open on.

Here's how to fix the problem:

1. Save the current index page with a new name using Save > Save As (this is if you want to keep the content on that page and not re-add it later).
2. Then save the page you would like to be your index page also using the Save > Save As function and calling it 'index' (make sure that you use the lower case i, not a capital I).
3. It will ask whether you want to overwrite the existing index page - say yes.
4. You will have a duplicate of pages, you can delete the old one in the Site Manager.

Hope this helps!
