Blog posts : "pages"
Your home page, also known as the default page, is loaded automatically when you edit your pages and it is the first page seen when someone visits your website.
Your default page cannot be deleted and this option will not be available unless another default page is chosen.
When you first create your website, your default page is typically labelled as "Home", depending on which template you chose. This can be adjusted to any other page on your website.
How to Change your Default Page
Once you have logged into your account and entered the editor, you can adjust the home page with the following steps:
1. Select "SITE" from the main toolbar and then "Site Settings" from the sub-menu.
2. Under the "Default Homepage" section, select a page from the drop-down list.
3. Save Changes
Now when you type your website address into a separate window, it should load with the new default home page.
This option will allow you to change such page information as Name and Description as well as modify the Page URL Location. The Page Name will be used in the navigation of your site, as well as on any links to this page.
Note: Anything entered into this field will automatically be entered into the page location as well for convenience, however, the location can be renamed if desired.
The Page URL is the path to the page that the user will see in the address bar when visiting your website. New folders are created in this area. If the "Publish Now" check box is not selected, the page will not automatically be published.
Where to Find
Clicking the "SITE" button in main toolbar, as in the below image, will bring up the "Site Settings" option in the menu, from here you can set a website title and other basic settings.
Note: Page specific settings can also be managed in the "PAGES" section of the Toolbar. Here you can select the cogwheel icon on the page you wish to manage to bring up the "Settings" sub menu.
Custom Keywords are used by some search engines for indexing your website. Keywords should be in a comma-separated list (eg: hockey, sport, NHL).
The Description will be used in the meta tags when people or search engines visit your website. Most search engines will use the description for a summary in their search results.
Note: The meta tag information added here will be specific to the page you're modifying the settings for, and not for your entire site! To create meta tags for your entire site, please add them to the Keywords area in the Head Tag section of your Site-wide Settings.
Where to Find

Make Your Website Live
Unless you specify otherwise and choose to un-publish your pages as you create them, or at a later time, your website pages and the changes you make to them are published as they are created and as the changes are made and saved.
Because the website builder is a CMS (Content Management System) builder, you are editing all aspects of your website as they appear to an outside viewer, and the current state of your website and its pages will be seen while using the Website Editor. This is convenient as you do not need to log out of your account or load your page separately to view your changes as you make them.
Simply put - your pages are published unless you choose for them not to be as you make changes, and click on the "Save", "Create" and "Update" buttons found throughout the editor.
