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.

If this is meant to be the homepage, you need to rename it to index.  You called it coverpage.  It is in your editor, you just need to select it and follow these instructions to rename it.

.  This thread shows how to rename pages.  After you rename the page you'll also need to correct any navigation links to the new page.
How do I edit my site navigation links?

If you are still stuck, let us know which page and links need fixed and we'll see what's wrong.

,  This thread shows how to rename the page. Just do a "save as" and name it index and it will override the original index page.

I made a new web page. It was automatically titled "Untitled". I go to the file Manager to give it a proper name but the "Re-name" is greyed out for that Web Page. How do I re-name it?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled change the title of a Webpage.

I would like to change the title of a Webpage to reflect the same thing I am putting as the Page Name (in the Page Settings). I know how to change it in the navigation menu, but that does not change it in the file itself or what appears in the address bar.

For example, I named my page Cindy's Speaking Topics, but afterwards realized that apostrophe's don't show up so it looks weird and will be difficult to direct people to. I changed it in the Page Name so the tab shows Speaker | Cindy Nicolai but the address still shows the ...Cindy-s-Speaking-Topics .

How can this be changed? Can I go into the File Manager and change the name? I would appreciate your advice.

Thanks in advance!

Cindy

Review each program icon. Highlight items on your page and experiment with the text settings, image setting and the menu settings. Try the different options and see what they look like. You can always change it back. There's allot you can learn on your own if you study.

Select page setting>enter the new name "Page Name". You may want to browse through the editor and review each icon. Try them to get acquainted with what's possible and get familiar with sitebuilding.

Dale7284,

You can use Save As to make a copy of the page, just don't delete the original. Some people will remove all the content that is unique and have a page called template or newpage. Then, when adding a page, just go to it and Save As the new page and build it.

Hello,

You should be able to do this by re-naming the page as shown above. This will create a second copy of the page under a different name.

I think this is what you mean. You want the page name to be in Portuguese not English? Use this to make the name anything you like(no spaces), then delete the contact us page.

Hello, I made a site. But my problem is that I don't have a ''homepage'' so when you want to google my site you have to add the page-name to it.. otherwise you can't open my site.. internet says it doesn't exist.

My question is: how do I make one of my already excisting pages as my ''homepage'' so you can google it without adding the pagename after it?
