Drupal Lite 8, 9: Set a Homepage for your Site
This article applies to Drupal Lite 8 and 9.
When your site is created, it does not have a default homepage. You can set any page to be your site's home page.
Only the Site Owner can set the home page for a site.
Step 1: Create a new page (if you have not yet done so)
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 page.
Note: if you have already created a page that you would like to use as your homepage, skip to Step 2.
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
- Select Configuration in the administration menu
- Select Basic Site Settings in the System category
- Scroll down to the Default Front Page section
- Enter the relative portion of the page that will be the home page
- Select Save Configuration
