Helpful tips:

You do not need to use the Landing Page layout as your home page. 

  • To use a different page layout for your homepage, rename the Path of your original Landing Page to something other than "/".  (You can delete this page after creating the new Home page.)
  • Create a new page of any layout that you want.  Set the path for the page that you want to be your Home Page to "/".
