Can you select a specific landing page for a guide? Or does the system always default to the page listed at the farthest left?

Great question! The system always defaults to the page listed at the farthest left as the landing page or home page of the guide.

If you'd like to make another page the home page, you just need to move that page so it's the first one listed in the guide. You can do that by using the Reorder Pages function:

  1. Go to Add/Edit Pages > Reorder/Move Pages.
  2. The Reorder Pages tab displays by default, with the main tabs listed below the drop down.
    Drag and drop the pages in whatever order you'd like, making sure the page you want to use as the homepage is at the top of the list.
  3. Click Save Changes.

  1. Is there a way for the homepage of a guide to be a tab other than the first one on the left?

    For example, my first tab is "Project Overview" then "Omeka" then "Exhibits", etc. While I want the Project Overview to be the first tab, I want the page to load showing the Omeka tab.

  2. Hi Terri!

    You could make the Omeka tab the guide's homepage by making it the left most tab. The steps in this FAQ will help you make that happen. :)

    You could also create a friendly URL for the Omeka page and only share that link, but the links that appear in the system (any guide lists) are always going to point to the Project Overview Tab.
