Changing how the home page of your Joomla website looks is one of the first thing that causes problems with those new to Joomla. Indeed some say it couldn't be more difficult if they tried!

Remove the 'Welcome to the frontpage' title


It sounds straightforward but it causes confusion everytime because the settings is hard to find in Joomla. Go Menu -> Main Menu -> Home. If you can't see Home, choose the link with an asterisk (*) next to it. When you are in Home, at the right are a set of Parameters. Click the Parameters (System) link. You can now change the title message to whatever you want, or set it to No. Click Apply then check your homepage to confirm it has changed

Front Page Layout


The settings for number of columns and other layout options are different for the frontpage to other sections of the website. Go Menu -> Main Menu -> Home. If you can't see Home, choose the link with an asterisk (*) next to it. Click the Parameters (Basic) link. In this section you can change details of the Joomla front page layout. Leading is the number of full width content articles to display, columns is the number of columns on the page, intro is the number of content items with intro text displaying and links is the number of articles that will appear only as links.
