I need to customise the web address of my home page. How do I do that?

This is the address for my home page. 

 

https://www.malakailelieveld.com/#knqsvd 

 

I need to change #knqsvd to say home instead. I do not know where the setting is to alter that. 

 

Help please.

Hey @writebychoice,

 

Thanks for reaching out! 

 

I took a look and your website homepage is actually https://www.malakailelieveld.com 🙂 If you want, you can go to https://www.malakailelieveld.com/home and it'll also take you to the same place - it won't show the /home once you get there though.

 

A hash tag at the end of the URL is generally used to link other elements of the homepage has some technical uses that you probably don't need to worry about (eg you can use it to link to a spot on your homepage, eg further down the page like a bookmark).

 

In theory you can put anything you want after a forward slash and hash tag in your URL and it'll still go to the home page - eg https://www.malakailelieveld.com/#TypeAnythingYouWantHereAndItWillStillGoToYourHomePage

 

Hope this clears things up! In short, just use the core domain https://www.malakailelieveld.com and you should be good!

Hi Seamus, 

 

Yes you are correct. However, I also see this  below when I click on my home page.

 

https://www.malakailelieveld.com/#knqsvd 

 

So do I just change it in my browser on the back end to read www.malakialelieveld/home instead? 

 

Thank you.

@writebychoice from the Web editor, click on the "Header" element then "Navigation" > "Navigation Links"

 

Click the pencil icon (edit) next to "Home". Does the setup look like this?
