How to Change the Index Page for
NHP Minisites When Using XSitePro

Each NHP minisite comes with an index.htm or index.php page. The index page is the webpage that your internet browser automatically goes to when you type in the domain name. For instance......When I type in www.at-healthy.com  the browers (internet explorer or firefox) automatically will open the page www.at-healthy.com/index.htm

I've had several questions on how do I chance the index page in XSitepro. Or....Xsitepro won't allow me to change the index page.

My experience has been that Xsite sometimes hangs up and won't let you change the index page when you have a minisite open. If you're having problems, close all programs and reboot your computer. The try the directions below.

Index page in XsitePro....Step 1

As you can see in the below screen shot. The very first file has been determined as the index page.

Removing Index Page in XsitePro....Step 2

Uncheck the box that says: "This is the Home Page for this site" Once that checkbox is unticked you'll see the file name change into the title of the article.

Creating New Index.htm page in XsitePro Minsite

First you would want to pick out a different page that you desire to be the new index page. Highlight that page by clicking on it as in #1 below. Next in #2 you need to check the box that says "This is the Home Page for this site". Once you do that you'll see as in Item #3 the file name has changed into index.htm.

You can leave the page in its current position, however, it makes more sense to use the arrows to move the site to the top of the list :)
