Hello Div, yes this is possible! :) You can just use the "Save Page as feature" So, first, just click the arrow next to the "Save" button. Then, click "Save page as" It will bring up a dialog, just rename it to "index2" or something (whatever you want) Then, go to your Site Manager tab next to the Page list, just delete the current index page (not the index2, only the first index one) if you want to have a new page for your homepage (with the actual page saved as another name). This will now delete the current index page but really your index page is still as another file name on your site so you really just deleted the homepage but there is still a copy. When you want to go back just save the page to "index" (no capital letters) and this will be set to your homepage again.

Important note: the name "index" is the homepage. You can't use "home" as the name because only the index will load when you go to the site.

I hope this information helps.

If you need any help n this let me know and I will help.

Sincerely,
Nathan
