SiteBuilder Newbies, Building a Homestead Website part 1-Making Changes

If you are a SiteBuilder newbie, and need help with your Homestead website, we are here for you. In this series, I will be sharing some of the biggest mistakes I made when I first started building websites using the Intuit/Homestead SiteBuilder program. We must be very careful when we are making changes to existing web pages.

In part one of this series, I will be talking about the effects of changes to existing pages.
When I first began to create web pages, I had no experience or formal training. I made many mistakes that required a considerable amount of additional hours to fix.

Specifically in this article I want to help you understand the importance of thinking about the changes that you are getting ready to make to a page.

Here's the main point of what I want you to understand. Before you change anything on a page, especially an active link or deleting a page, it is IMPORTANT to stop and really think about what those links or pages are attached to.

Remember, once you have made a change and clicked on “Save” the change is permanent. There's no amount of help from anyone in tech support or anywhere else that will be beneficial to you in trying to recover what you had built before you clicked on the “Save” button.
So, it is IMPORTANT to stop and think before you hit that “save” button.

When I was a newbie, I had created my entire site of about fifteen pages. Everything was linked with the Index or home page. I'm not even sure what I was thinking at the time, but somehow I deleted the Index page and saved my changes.

I called the Homestead tech support for help. The gentleman on the other end of the phone kindly informed me that the page was gone forever. I had to completely rebuild my home page and reconnect all of the other fourteen page links that I had originally interconnected to it.

There are many resources at the Homestead Users website that have been created to help SiteBuilder newbies. We offer a gift for all of our visitors called the Free Ebook, Thirty Ways To Increase Traffic To A Homestead Website.
