The home menu item must be a component - Error Message

Postby golfvilla » Fri Apr 01, 2011 12:39 pm

After I set up a Contact Us page, it became the Home page. When I tried to make the "Home" Menu item the default page I got the following error:

"The home menu item must be a component."

Any thoughts?

Try to delete the Home menu item and create a new one.

I solved this by setting the menu item to featured articles, and selected one article as featured. Then i was able to toggle a menu item as home.

This is a solution that worked for me.

Any type of menu item can be default except external url.
