Homepage missing - Free Account

Have a bit of an issue where had to delete the homepage, to create a new one. When trying to save the page without a suffix it produces an error message to say page already exists, its not archived, does not appear in page list. Was definately deleted. Screenshot 2024-05-22 102700.jpg


The site now does not know it has a homepage, so when enter the domain name, just get a 404.

Any ideas other than creating a new account and deleting the existing please?

Homepage missing - Free Account

Hi there,

To resolve the issue of your missing homepage, try these steps:

  1. Check Recycle Bin:

    • Go to Marketing > Website > Website Pages.
    • Check the Recycle Bin to see if the deleted homepage is there. If found, restore it.
  2. Clear URL Conflict:

    • Ensure no other pages are using the same URL.
    • Go to Settings > Website > Domains & URLs and look for any conflicts.
  3. Create a New Homepage:

    • If the above steps don’t work, create a new page.
    • Set it as your homepage:
      • Go to Settings > Website > Website Pages.
      • Set the new page as the homepage.
  4. Publish the Page:

    • Ensure the new homepage is published to avoid the 404 error.

Hope this helps!
