    Hello,
    Is there any solution, to set homepage url empty?
    I need to have all url for hamepage like "/". (in Menus, Breadcrumb, etc)
    But now i have '/home', it's not suitable for me. Also, redirect through urlrewrite is not acceptable.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Hi Andrey,

    When someone visits your site for outside link, or directly, they will be redirected to the homepage, the url of which will not contain the string used in the url field ( http://mysite.com/home ). However because the homepage is actually a normal page from your website, it will need to have a specific url name, which will be used for accessing it directly or for internal use. This behaviour is hard to be changed unless you use some rewriter tool for the homepage url.

    All the best,

    I too am having the same issue and the url rewrite is not proving to solve the problem for us. We have a critical issue where we need to fix this ASAP. The advice I have been given from several people have not worked, also the breadcrumbs need to maintain functionality as well since we rely on them heavily for navigation within pages. I notice this is post is from this year. We are on Sitefinity 5.0 running IIS7

    I have a ticket opened for this already but don't believe I have had any response to it yet. Can I please get some escalation on this? Thank you very much.
