Change "Home" to different page?

Permalink
Hi.
Client wants to change the current "home" page to another page in the site tree.

I can not find any way to do this, Do I have to recreate the page in the "Home" location.?

I have now like this in the Site tree

Home (not in page nav acts as landing page)
page1
page2
page3 ... and so on

So if I want page2 to be the landing page instead of home. Hand move down Home to be the old page2. Can it be done?

Currently I have version 5.4.1.1 Of concrete5 for this site

Regards
Olle

You have to recreate the page in the home location. I have a single page template for my home page so I can edit it independently of any other page types.

Gahh! This is not so good :(

I wonder why its so hard to change the home page? It should be very simple matter.
Other cms I have tried its very simple.

Recreate the page is a very time consuming task :(

How about changing the IDs in the database? Would that work?

Do you want to use the existing structure but just land on a different landing page or do you want to completely redo the tree?

Hi
Well I think I have to redo the tree.

Home (not in page nav acts as landing page)
page1
page2
page3 ... and so on

I want page2 to be the landing page instead of home. And move down Home to be the old page2. Can it be done?

So I could use a redirect on the Home page to page 2. But I still need to recreate the "Home" page. Because I want it to show up in the menu as a new page,

I also need to change the name of "Home" in the new structure. Because it will show in the menu. But I thik I found out how to do that.
