I am totally clueless. I hit add as the FRONT PAGE and I really didnt want it to be the page people are directed to and that comes up first in pages?
can anyone help?
Joe, absolutely we can help! Since I'm not sure what exactly you'd like for your Home Page, here are two different resources that should help.
Hope this helps and let me know if you need additional support!
OK, but what this says is that once you have set a page as a "Front Page" you must ALWAYS have at least one active page in your course that has the "Front Page" designation. I can set up my home page so that the "Front Page" doesn't display, but if I have created a page and set it as a "Front Page" I have no way to delete all pages or to not have one set as a front page. This is a bug NOT a feature. One should have the option to NOT have a front page any longer, even if one has designated a page as a front page already. There is no logical, functional reason to force a page to exist as published and designated as a front page if one isn't using it at all.
Here's a workaround. Add a new dummy page. Make the dummy page the Front Page.
Make a new empty course. Import everything except the dummy page into the new course. Settings | Imported Content into this course | Content Type: Copy a Canvas Course | Content: Select specific content.
Your new course will not have a Front Page designated.
There's a less invasive and much better way to do this now - Unassigning the Front Page
