If I'm understanding you correctly, you want another page to be the index page so when the user goes to your url, they would see this other page and not your original index page?

Go to the original index page and then go to your "save" button and click on "save page as". Give this a new name.

Then, go to the page that you want to become your index page. Again, do "save page as" and this time give it "index". It will ask you if you want to save over the original index file. Say "yes". Then, delete the original copy of this new index page.

I hope that makes sense to you. If not, let me know.

Hello there,
Your site is set to open to whatever page is the index page. Can you tell us more about what you would like to do with an entry page and how you would like it to function and we can give you some ideas.

Thanks!

Do what Littleus said or you can put it first in the menu on the bar above your site click on "edit menu" and drag the page you want to be your homepage at the top hope I helped :) LauraMay

Hi I would like to add to this question. I want a page to pop up instead of my home page, which will display the latest news. Then if the user clicks anywhere on the screen it will take them to the link of my choosing. I dont want to replace my homepage as it is linked to throughout my site, and changing the index would link to the splash page.

Is there anyway of doing this? SO when the user types my web address or any address within my site, this page pops up first??

Hello,
Yola does not currently have an Entry Page feature; although if it is really important to you, you could create two sites, one site as a one page site and the "Entry Page" which you could then link to the main site. I hope you will be able to make that work for you.

Here is a link to our public forum where some users were discussing some ideas surrounding this topic: Entry Page.
Cheers!
