Remove the page name from the current page and name the new page > Use Page Settings: Page Name: index.html.

The home page must be called index. Do you want to save or overwrite the old index page?

Thank you for your response. I can't  change name to old page. I tried to change name to new as Index.html, but it still showing my old page as a first page.

Remove the name for you old page. Save and Publish. Select F5 to refresh your browser. Log onto you website to review the results.
What is your url?

Delete your old home page by selecting the "x" next to it. Open your new home page and use "Page Settings" to name your new home page: index.html > Save > Publish.
(You have some peculiar html on the page in the upper left corner.) This will go away when you delete the page.

system doesn't allowed me to delete old page, no "x" mark to home page. I tried to delete from Sitebuilder too, then I do not have option to rename new homepage. I know about html in the corner, I fixed that on new page. Can I call on Monday  and somebody can help me with that problem.

That's impossible. You can delete any page from the page list by selecting "x" next to the page name.

I hope you've been using "Page Settings" and not "Menu Settings" to rename your Home Page to index.html. Are we on the same page?

I see the index page was published on 2/10 and a page called home, published on 2/11. Which page do you want as the first page of the site? Do you need to save the other page?

I rebuilt all pages, to new ones and i do need to save them. Home page, I made new one. Old page has name Home(index), new one just Home. I am unable to change name or delete old page.

Do you get an error? If you need to save the current index, then open it in the editor. Use the save as and give it a new name that is not in use already. Then go to the home page in the editor and select save as and select index from the file list. This should do what you need. If you get any errors, what are they.
