For a website, the ‘Front Page’ is what site visitors land on when they go to www.yoursitename.com. Any published content ‘promoted to the front page’ will be the default content on the front page. You may, however, create a custom front page and set that to display by default instead.
The first step to creating a custom front page is to create the page itself. If you’re not familiar with creating pages you can find the instructions here, or you can watch our training video.
Website best practice suggestions when creating your front page:
When your custom front page is ready you can set it to appear as the default front page for your website.
Navigate to: Configuration > System > Site Information
Visit your website as an anonymous user and confirm that you are seeing the custom front page.
You may also want to use this feature temporarily to promote a special sale or event. For instance, you could create a page using the instructions to ‘Create A Page’ and ‘Create A Block’ to make a page that focuses on a major upcoming author event. See an example of such a page in the screenshots portion of this document.
The American Booksellers Association, a national not-for-profit trade organization, works with booksellers and industry partners to ensure the success and profitability of independently owned book retailers, and to assist in expanding the community of the book.
