    Changing First Web Page

    Hi all.

    Can you help with my query. I have created the schools website (which is a bit of a work in progress) based around a "home" file name of index.htm but I now want to temporarily add another page that site visitors see first. I thought that if I created a new page called "default.htm" this would be loaded first. However, this does not seem to be the case. Is there anyway I can put a page up that appears before index.htm?

    Many thanks,

    rename your current index.htm or index.html to main.htm or main.html and then create a new index.htm or index.html page and you could do a timer on the newly created index.htm page or some other method to make it go to the main home page afterwards

    Thats how I would do it

    If you get in touch with whoever is the administrator for your web server, they can set which is the 'default' filename page - default.htm, index.htm, index.html or whatever else. They have to set this in IIS or Apache (depending what web server software they use).

    Whether they will be willing to, however, is another matter!

    Have asked our ISP to change the prioroty of the web pages. Our site now loads default.html before index.htm.

    Good tip - cheers,
