So I was just messing around and set the Front page but realized it won't work for what I was trying to do. So now that I've done it, I cannot seem undo it?
Hi Michelle Meazell...
Once you set the "Front Page" of a Page you've built, you can't really remove it other than assigning the "Front Page" to some other page of your course. I haven't found any way to remove the "Front Page" tag. I've found these couple Feature Ideas here in the Community, but they have both been archived due to a lack of necessary votes during their three-month voting period:
Allow deselection of Front page status
*Removing a Front Page
Hope this information is helpful to you, Michelle.
Thanks Chris. Seems rather strange to have an "all or nothing" option here. I would think they would allow you to set it and then unset it - meaning not have a front page Page at all. If i make another page, I'm still sort of having the same issues -- I don't want it at all. So looks like my option may be to disable Pages from navigation and hope that a student doesn't get stuck in any weird loop. Thanks so much for your help!
Hey Michelle Meazell, once you've set a page as a front page you can't unset it, un-publish it, or delete it while it is set as the front page. What you can do is change what is set as your home page. How do I change the Course Home Page? This will at least change what your students see when they first access the course. You can always reuse that front page if you decide to redesign it, or you could create a new page, designate it as the front page, and delete your first attempt.
There is an archived feature idea which could shed more light on how this situation came about and what other users are desiring regarding Pages in Canvas.
Pages paradigms and redesigns (Parity w/Assignments/Discussions/Quizzes)
The gist is that it probably made sense at some point, but may not any longer. All of which is subjective. Hopefully the options I outlined above will address your concerns.
