Change or Delete Your Homepage in Page Creator

Google Page Creator, the free tool that lets you build simple web pages without knowing HTML, has received a small update.

Until today, the only thing you couldn't delete from a web page was the homepage, but now you can delete it too. To delete an entire site, you can select all the pages and remove them. Unfortunately, you'll have to delete the uploaded files one at a time or hide the site in the settings. But even if you delete everything from the web site, there's no way to delete the site itself.

Another improvement is that any page can become a homepage, so you can have multiple potential homepages. To change the homepage, go to the settings and select one of the pages you've created from the Homepage option.


It would be nice to see more features in Google Page Creator that could make it a part of Google Docs: collaborative editing, site search, folders, custom templates.

  1. It was quite funny to read, after eight months of no improvements, how proud they were to announce they finally released one of the most-requested features. Instead of great ways or incentives to create new web content, they added a button to delete your entire site...

  2. Apparently the delete options are the most difficult to add. Gmail only added a delete button last year and Google Page Creator still doesn't let you delete the site.

  6. There's no option to do that, but you could add some JavaScript code that redirects from the real homepage to the page you've uploaded.

    <script type="text/javascript">
    window.location =
    "http://site.googlepages.com/mypage.html"
    </script>

    Note that you won't be able to edit the real homepage after you add that code because you'll be redirected to the new page even in the edit mode. You should disable JavaScript in your browser before editing the page.
