Renaming the Index page

I had an Index page for my app which contained a navigation menu. It worked fine but when it went live but I wanted to put up a kind of “Coming Soon” page instead of that menu page in case someone wandered into my app and thought it was weird that most things were blank without data in it.

So, I created a “Coming Soon” page and set that as my Index page. On it was an image that, when clicked, would prompt for a password to go into the actual app. I called this page “Index” and the previous Index page was automatically renamed as “old_index” and everything worked.

Now I want to change it back so that the “old_index” page becomes the “index” page again but it won’t allow me to make this change so I’m a bit stuck.

What do I need to do to achieve this please?

What specific error are you encountering?

Try renaming old_index to something else, and then turning it into the index page.

If I try renaming old_index to index I get the following error…

If I try renaming index I get the following

It seems that I’m stuck in a loop.

Maybe I am misunderstanding what you are doing, but you don’t rename a page to index. You right-click on the page itself and select the Make this page the new index menu option.

Now you say it, I remember doing this.

I can’t think up a suitable excuse for my new level of forgetfulness. I’m so embarrassed!


As ever, thanks so much Mike…!
