Hello,

Thank you for your message. The page called "index" in the Sitebuilder is your default home page and is the first page your site will open. So, if you want to use your home page as the first page that people go to, then here's how to set this up:

1. Rename the current index page, using Save > Save Page As (this is if you want to keep the content on that page and not re-add it later).
2. Then rename the page you would like to be your index page, also using the Save > Save Page As function, to "index" (make sure that you use the lower case i, not a capital I).
3. A dialog box will pop up in your browser to check whether you want to overwrite the existing index page. Click "OK".
4. You will have a duplicate of your index page, which you can delete in Site Manager.

I hope you find this helpful. Please let me know if you struggle with any of the steps above.

Cheers!
