What's an initial page? How do I set the front page for my site?

An initial page, at the top level of your site structure, is the page that will be displayed when users access the root of your website (that is, they do not request any particular page from your site). If you're setting an initial page for a folder, this page will be used for a similar purpose.

You can set the front page for your site in the page configuration, by navigating to the page you want to set as your front page. Click to enter Structure Mode this guide for help with accessing your page configuration.

Note:
  1. If the page you wish to use as your front page is contained within a folder, you'll need to first set the folder page itself as the front page, then also set the contained page as the front page. This allows the folder to point to that contained page as the site front page.
  2. You cannot use a single link page as the front page, since this is a link and does not have a page of its own.
  3. The page you use must be enabled to display as your front page, see Step 5 of this guide.
