hi all,

The CMS website setup has a homepage. I was playing with tutorial 1 and now everytime I do dev/build it creates a new homepage. I have deleted Homepage.php and Is there a entry in the mysql database I need to delete ?

Also how to set my old homepage as the homepage ?


P.S: I posted this in the blog module forum, I am resposting it here.

Change the page type in the CMS to the standard 'Page' page type. Save and publish then revisit the page with a ?flush=1 and you should be back on the normal template.

SS will create a page with the url 'home' if you haven't got one as it requires a page with the url 'home'.

Thanks willr. The home page's page type is already "Page". I referred it as a template as a new homepage was getting created everytime I did ' (mysite)/dev/build?flush=1' and I had renamed the homepage url. Was my mistake doing that instead of '(mysite)?flush=1' ?
