You can make any page your index page by assigning the filename "index" to that page. However, always be sure that you have an index page.

Hi J

Can you tell me what style you are using? It might be a feature of the particular style that is causing the letters to be lower case.

Thanks

it's called "underground". But the other pages are totally fine. It's just the index page. It was because I deleted the one I had before, and added this one in. But the name just won't go back to "Home" like before. And it won't go back to uppercase either.

Hi J

Thanks for the detail. By default on the Underground style all the menu names are in lower case and the homepage is called "index." But you can change this as follows:
1) Click on "Edit Menu"
2) Click "Expand All"
3) You will see two boxes under each page that allow you to change the menu text and hover text. Type in the name you want, eg: "HOME" and click "ok"

Let me know if this corrects the problem.

Greetings

It doesn't work! I did exactly what you said, but when I tried to change it, it wouldn't let me! I mean, I go to Expand All, but it won't let me write in the box. I already tried it like, ten times!

Hi J

Are you perhaps using Internet Explorer? We just found a bug with editing menu names in Internet Explorer. We have fixed it but the fix will only go live early next week. I am really sorry about sending you instructions that didn't work for you! Can you hang on until next week, or try it in a different browser, like Firefox?

ok j
this is what you have to do:

you open the index page and open the page you want to be on index,

and its kinda hard, but you put all the codes and stuff from the page you want into the index.

might be too hard for you though, it depends on how much stuff you have.

goodluck!

THANK YOU, MONIQUE!!! It perfectly worked on Firefox!!!! I wasn't using Internet Explorer in the first place, I was using Safari. But I guess it has the same problem. Thank You!!

Great! Thank you for your patience and persistence on this one. I am glad it finally paid off. I didn't know that we had the bug in Safari as well, so thanks for letting me know. I will make sure that it is working in Internet Explorer and Safari before we do our next release early next week!

With the new blog feature (great work, btw!), I would like to know how I can make my blog page the default homepage instead. Do I have to start my site from scratch?!?!

Help! :)
