Create your Site Homepage

Learn how to configure and create your homepage

For the purpose of this tutorial we will create a static page and set it as homepage. You can order and style it the way you want, add different modules to it later on but the foundation will be a Basic Page.

Create the Basic Page

First, let's create the page that will have our homepage content. To do this, go to Content -> Add Content -> Basic Page. This will take you to the content creation page.

Once you add your content and format it, scroll down and expand the Publishing Options tab and place checks on Published and Promoted to front page.

Finally, hit the Save button at the bottom of your page.

Important: Copy the URL of that page, you will need it later. It should be something like /node/3/.

Set your New Page as Homepage

Now that we've created the basic page, we need to set it as homepage for the website. To do this, go to Configuration -> Site Information.

Locate the Front Page section and paste the URL of the page you've just created in the Default front page field.

That's it, your site homepage is now ready!
