Here are some instructions to rename a page:
  1. Click Websites Manager in the left navigation menu. Then, click Edit Site.
  2.  



  3. Go to the page that you'd like to rename.

  4. Click the down arrow next to Save in the top toolbar and select Save As from the drop-down menu.




  5. Rename the page to what you would like it to be called and click OK.


  6. Save and Publish.


Note:
  • Doing a save as duplicates the page so it would be wise to delete the original page from your file manager. Learn how to delete a page.


  • Renaming a page will break any links that were going to the original name. We recommend you update your site navigation menu to reflect the new page name and page link. Learn how to Edit the site navigation menu.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled change page name to link name.

When editing site page name does not match the page name it is linked to and I want to change that. So, for instance, when editing, under "View Page" state untitled 4, but the link name is Budget Bedroom. When I go to Links there is nowhere to fix this.

I want to have 2 pages of photos and am trying to change the title of an existing page to do that.  I successfully changed the title in the Navigation Bar, but the old title still shows up in the View Page window.  How to change this?  Also, can I have 2 pages with the same title or they need to be different?

If it is part of the navigation, you will have to update the link too.

Hi Bob8142: 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.

If you are going to go back to the current index, then rename index something else, then rename the page you want to index. You may need to update some links as well.

This is a slightly different question than this topic.

This didn't work for me with the old site builder.

Michael, these instructions should still be good. Which page do you wish to copy and what do you want to call it? What happened when you tried?

I wasn't trying to copy a page, I wanted to change the name of the page. The page I wanted to rename is Membership Application, I was going to name it Presidents Reports. When I clicked on the down arrow after the page name at the top I got a menu of many options, none of which were "Save As"

I just added a new page.

The arrow you click to rename the page is on the right side of the Save button and Save as will be the only option there.

Now I see it. The SAVE is way over to the right and not in the Page button. Will have to try sometime.

I have all my pages uniquely named through the website manager.  However, if you are viewing my website as a customers, every single page comes up with s http://www.innerspacesbykaren.com/ in the ip address bar.  i.e. I want to send a client to specifically to my yoga therapy page innerspacesbykaren_YogaTherapy, I can't because it defaults to the home page every time.

If you link them to the domain name only the visitor will be taken to the Home(index) page. If you want them to go to a specific page, then you need to send a link with the page name included.

You can also save the desired page as the home page, and make the home page some other page if you like.

It was not that simple.  Someone from Homestead knew the codes and had me go through GoDaddy and manually change settings.

Hi, 

I renamed my page and it is saved under files now (osteopathybenefitsforyourbaby). 

I deleted the old page. 

I went to the site navigation menu settings and linked the page name Baby with osteopathybenefitsforyourbaby.

After publishing the page it doesn't open but says error. 

What do I do now?

HOW TO ADD A PAGE TO YOUR MENU:
You are using SB+? 
Open the page you're wanting to add > select the menu > you'll find the Site Navigation Menu Settings on the right side of your screen > Select Links > Select + > Select the file you're wanting to add using Browse > Save your selection > Scroll the the bottom of the Settings menu and name your page and Save.

It was linked right, but the page wasn't published. It looks like you are trying to exceed your 15 page limit. You have 15 Sitebuilder pages plus siteerror404(doesn't count), but you also have a Google generated HTML page. Any HTML or HTM page counts towards the limit. You can remove a page or upgrade another 10 pages.

You can select "Add a New Page". This produces a blank page for you to build on.

Hello Asher8844

You would need to rename the page you want as your Home page as "Index" using the instructions at the top of this page.  If you want to save your current Home page, first save that as another page name.
