ARgh! Panic!

How do I point the server to a static page for the default directory page instead of the CMS?

I am converting a static site and until I am ready to switch completely over, I am running the static site alongside. Unfortunately, now home is pointing to the CMS and NOT my original static page. How on earth do I get it back?

Anyone, please, help??

You could put the CMS in a subdirectory... so the static home page would be in www.yourserver.com and the cms could then live in www.yourserver.com/somedir

Helps?

HAHA!

Just grab the static content from the original home page and shove that into the HomePage.ss template, removing any dynamic content references, and Bob's your uncle!

Yeah, you wouldn't believe me perhaps, but this morning I just thought of posting your solution, but didn't get to it yet. Glad you've worked it out!
