Change .html netlify app opens with


When I first created my website, I had an ‘index.html’ page. This is the first page that’s loaded. Since then I’ve renamed the index file and added another file called ‘about.html’. I would like to change it so that the ‘about.html’ is the first one that is loaded. Is there a way to do this? Thank you.

@christinajoshi Welcome to the Netlify community. You really should have an index.html page. Really.

However, if that doesn’t work for you, you should be able to set up a redirect.

I already changed it, but thanks.

Hi, @christinajoshi. I just wanted to second what @gregraven said.

It would be possible to do this with a redirect rule. Note, if that is done (redirecting the / path to /about), that would prevent /index.html from ever being shown.

If there are other questions about this, please reply anytime.

Thank you @luke. I appreciate it.
