Hi, I’m a new user and I ran into a problem. I installed b2svolution without the sample pages. I created a home/front page and everything looks good. I then noticed that the “This Site” button on the navigation bar also points to the home page collection I just made. I deleted the front page I made and This Site page was blank. Do I need to have 2 front pages for a fresh install?

Exact b2evolution version number :6.10.7

HI @evee nice to have you on board and by the way it's a good idea to add the version to the additional fields at the bottom so others know what they are dealing with, I notice it's 6.10.7

To your question, no you don't have to have 2 front pages, so the question is why you made the extra one and called it Home.

Both point to a collection, which is show due to settings described at

The navigation bar at the top of the screen, for non-logged in users, is called the Site Wide Header, which you may want to read up about, there are a few questions around it's use any layout.

To get some info on the Site Wide Header view

That's a bit of reading I know. I hope your ok with that for now :)

Thanks amoun. I’ll update my post and add the current version. Also, thank you for the links. I’ll read them now and come back later.

Short answer ;) : each collection has a checkbox to decide whether or not it should be listed in the front office site navigation.
