Extra Upload-Formula Page for Frontpage/Homepage

Hi Mikael,

it is not very clear to me, how to make a front/homepage (the page that you see first) with media with the secretary.
The index works fine, but I can only show sections (twice). Maybe you could help me here? (I have little knowledge of php.)
My suggestion would be, to put an extra formula page "homepage" in the backoffice, (maybe with some nice jquery stuff).

I also don't understand how the path-thing with the file-cabinet, how to upload files. Why do I have to give a path here (which?) instead of uploading automatically like for a jpg under projects, for instance?

Dear Mikael, I thank you for your great cms - apart from the above mentioned points I find it really user-friendly and useful.

    Hello Mikael, thank you for asking. Unfortunately not, I tried to
    connect a projectLink to the home page (via the link?-window), but it
    did not work.

    If there is a way to make a nice opening page, I would appreciate if
    you could explain it (in the forum).

    Also the "Need help with this? Read the how to in the User Guide."-
    Link on the manage/pages/edit site does not work, but leads to a site
    that says: "There isn't a tender here!"

    To make a custom opening page:

    1. Create a new page
    2. Go to Settings > Pages
    3. Select the page you just created under the "Site Index/Home Page" dropdown, click save.
    4. Now that page is your opening page!

    If you want to put custom content into that page, you can either just write text and insert an image into the body of the page, or you can use the page type options (see the how to to inject projects (or blog posts) into the page. The great thing about the page type is that it can be dynamic - so you can make it display your newest project, for example.

    Thank you, Mikael! What I find difficult, is that in your cms are
    different levels of ease of use.

    Therefore my suggestion.
