    Hi All,

    I have a bilingual site that has a bilingual landing page (splash.aspx - set as the home page).

    I'm trying to get the site to start at http://mysite.com and not http://mysite.com/en/splash.aspx.

    Can I create a Default.aspx page as my landing page and have the site start there.

    Is there a way to accomplish this?

    Hello Roland,

    Thank you for using our services.

    Please follow the bellow steps:

    1) Make sure that localization for your website looks like this:
    <localization defaultProvider="Sitefinity" persistenceMode="PathPrefix" defaultCulture="en" autoSetClientLanguage="false" cultures="en, nl, fr, it, no">

    2) In VS create create a page splash.aspx in the root of your website.

    3) Go to IIS Management Studio and select your website. Go to Default Document and add a new default document, for name enter splash.aspx

    4) In Sitefinity part of your website set the splash.aspx page that you have previously create as homepage
