Hi Jahah,

The page called "index" in the Site Builder 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.

Hi Jahah,

You'll always need a page called "index' as your home page. You can change the wording of the page on your site by clicking on "Edit Menu" but it will always need to be called "index" in the site builder.

If you have another page that you would prefer to be your home page, use the steps that Kershnee's described and save the new page as "index". It will replace the current page. Remember to do the same process for the old index page if you want to keep it (save it with a new name).

I hope that helps!
