HOW TO LINK THE CORRECT PAGE TO YOUR MENU ITEM:
Review your link settings. Highlight your navigation menu > Links > Select the title > Select Edit Link > Select the corresponding page from your file manager and save.

ADDING A NEW HOME PAGE:
To install the new page as your home page, select the page > Page Settings > Page Name > enter "index.html" > save. Remove the page name from your previous page.
Next, you can add the new home page to your site navigation menu by selecting the menu > Use the Site Navigation Menu Settings > Links > + to add the page > follow the instructions in the command box to locate your new home page > select the page from your files > OK. Now, you can scroll to the bottom and edit the page title. Since you have only one page, it should now be the only page on the menu and it should appear with the page title you've chosen and it will respond as the home page.
For Sitebuilder plus sites you can use the save as option and rename the desired home page index. https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/sitebuilder-plus-rename-pages

CHANGE THE PAGE ORDER:
Select the menu > Menu Settings > scroll to the page title > select up or down icon to place the title in your desired position > review file information > OK > Save > Publish.
PROPERTIES EDITOR:
Whenever you click an element the properties editor appears on the right.
Navigation menu changes are changed by selecting the menu, click the Links tab in your properties editor to the right, select the page on the list > use the up & down arrows to reorder or change menu item titles.
ADDING A PAGE OR CHANGING A PAGE NAME TO YOUR MENU:
You need to add/change a page to your menu? If you don't, they will not be accessible. "Highlight" the site navigation menu by hovering your cursor over the menu and left click one time > The site navigation menu settings are on the right side of your monitor > Select Links > Select "+" > Browse your files and select the page you want to add > select the file and press OK in the command box > Scroll down to the bottom of the settings menu to insert "Page Name" > the new page element will be highlighted on the list > Move the new title to the desired position.
Experiment with the Site Navigation Menu Settings tool. You can adjust font sizes and spacing!

Hello,

themieleman provided the correct instructions, but it can be complicated. If you need assistance, you can call us and we can walk you through the process. 1-800-710-1998

I recommend renaming the page that is currently showing up as the Home page to whatever page name you want to give it. Then, once that duplicate is created, rename the page you want to show up as your Home page to "index". This will overwrite whatever is currently set as the Home page. (which is why you make a duplicate of that page first.)
