Changing the Joomla Homepage to a Different Component

This tutorial will show you how to place a shopping cart, photo gallery, video gallery or any other kind of component on your homepage, instead of the normal list of articles.

Step 1: Finding the Current Homepage


Login to your Joomla site administrator area and hover your mouse over "Menus". Click on whichever menu has the star beside it.

Step 2: Finding the Current Home Link


Look for the link that has the yellow star in the default column. That is your current homepage.

Step 3: Changing the Homepage


Check the box next to the link that you would like to be the homepage and then click "Default" in the top-right corner.

Step 4: All Done!


"Joomla License" is now your homepage.
