I was starting to implement a new website based on the template offered by installation - blackcandy. During my changes the "Home"-Page has been deleted and I have another page which should appear when someone is calling www.mydomain.tld. Neither the docs nor the forum search pointed me to a solution how to archive this.

Is there anybody out there who is able to help?

One other thing, if you really want the starting page to appear as something like you could create an empty redirector page pointing to this address called home. Now if someone goes to your website it will immediately send them to the right page.
