    is this possible?

    I was looking through the thread about "most non-iWeb looking sites" and it seems like people are able to accomplish what I'm saying.

    Thanks.

    it's all in the way you upload the site. If you make your homepage located at /Site/home.html, it'l be there. If you opt instead to upload evrything directly into the top level folder it will just be at /home.html.

    Exactly.

    That depends on which files the server is configured to look for as directory index files. Meaning, if one of those files exist in a given directory (including document root) then it will be served. If you visit www.mysite.com and see a directory listing of files, then you know you need to add home.html to the directory index in your web server configuration.

    In Apache it can be added into the global configuration portion of httpd.conf or as surfdog suggested, place it inside .htaccess in your document root similar to this example which uses 3 files:

    DirectoryIndex homes.html index.html index.php

    Add any others, each separated by a space and include the full file extension, i.e. homes.htm and homes.html are not the same file plus it is case sensitive. If you don't run Apache, ask your webhost to set it similarly.

    Please repost as a new topic - this topic is for iweb site navigation, i.e. url's that affect how the site loads. Thanks!
