Customizing HTML: Index.html

If a URL does not contain a file name, web servers look for a file named “index.html” in the directory referenced by the URL. Given a URL like “”, browsers will actually display “”. In general, every folder should have an index.html file.

By default, Create will create an index.html file automatically. In in the
Web Options Misc pane, you have a choice of whether to not create this file (Omit), create a page which is a symbolic link to the first page of the document (not the Table of Contents) (Link), or create a page which is an exact Copy of the first page. By default, the link option is preferred because if you alter the first page, the symbolic link always reflects the latest version. However, on some web servers (including iDisk), links are not possible, so in this case, you should choose either Omit or Copy.

If you choose to Omit an index.html and you leave the “index” default setting for your
Home Page Link, Create will make the Home button on your navigation bars point to the first page of your document. To make the Home button point to your own index.html, set the Home Page Link to “./index.html” in the Web Options Misc pane.
