Drupal Lite 7: Set your site's home page
When your site is created, it has a default homepage. But you can set any page to be your site's home page.
Step 1: Create your home page
Before you set your site's home page, you will need to create a page. A common format used for a home page is the General content type. Follow the instructions for creating a new General page.
Step 2: Get the relative URL of your home page
Once you've created your home page, note the relative portion of the URL -- the portion that appears after the site URL.
For example, if the page has a URL of <<sitename>>.umn.edu/my-new-homepage, then the relative portion is my-new-homepage.
Step 3: Set the home page
- Log in to your site
- Click Menu in the administration toolbar
- Click Custom Settings
- Click Home page settings in the left-side tabs
- Enter the relative portion of the page that will be the home page
- Click Save
