Hello smithy

These are the steps to turn your existing homepage into a blog page on your website.

1. If you would like to keep the current index page, click on the down-arrow next to "Save" and select "Save As" to save the page with a new name.
2. Click on "New Page".
3. Name the page "index" and select the "Blog Page" option.

You will get a message telling you that your index page already exists and asking if you want to overwrite it. Say "yes". This will replace your current index page with a blog page and your site will start on your blog page.

Please click here for a tutorial: Creating your blog with Yola.

**Please Note** While this method allows you to turn a new, blank blogpage into your homepage page, it is not possible to transfer a developed blogpage with content onto your homepage.

Thanks smithy

I have just replied to your email but I'll post here too so that others who may have this same question will know what to do:

Since you don't have anything on your homepage, you do not need to do "Save Page as". You can just go to "New Page". Then, name the page "index" and select the "Blog Page" option.

I hope that helps. Let me know if you still have trouble.
