  1. thank you @teppo, your point of view makes a lot more sense than telling me that what I'm trying to do doesn't make any.
  2. I fully appreciate the responses, and I'm very thankful for the script 🙂 But when I get a response like "what you're trying to do doesn't make sense" and that "you shouldn't ever have to change the home page because it's sacred" - when I'm requested by a designer and a client to do exactly that - add an entirely new home page, and use the current one as a child of that, moving the entire tree down the hierarcy - then all I can say is principles are nice but reality is not always inline with an ivory-tower approach to things, unfortunately.
  3. @Macrura with respect, Unfortunately there's this unconvenient thing called reality.. What you are suggesting is something that would take hours in the current setup I have, setting up all fields/contents again to recreate the current home page in the New homepage, and spending another crazy amount of time reassigning it as parent of new sites.. Even though it's as simple as changing the site tree in the cms, very easy in almost all cms-es.. And the best argument for this painstaking process being necessary is that the home page is "sacred".. 🙂 I believe sacred things belong in the church.
  4. Thank you very much, Ill try this approach if there's no other way.. But wow, it's quite crazy that there's no simple solution for such a very simple task.. @ryan do I really need to run command line scripts which may or may not mess up my entire site, just to change the home page??
  5. Hey, This is probably a very basic question but I just spent the past hour messing around trying to get this done and still stuck so hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. I have a site with a home page containing a ton of content; and a huge hierarchy of pages below. What I need to do now is create an entirely new home page, with a new template, and make the current home page its child, keeping its content intact - moving it down with the entire subtree So basically I now have Old Home Page with old template Some subpage Some other subpage Hundreds of other sub and sub sub sub pages with lots of content, which I don't want to manually move around/clone etc And what I want to achieve is New home page with new template Old Home Page with old template Some subpage Some other subpage Hundreds of other sub and sub sub sub pages with lots of content, I don't want to manually move around/clone etc Eg. in WordPress I'd just create a New Home Page, set it to be the Home in theme settings, then make Old Home page it's child which would also make its subpages the grandchildren - very quick and easy. How do I achieve this in Processwire? I couldn't find a way to add a new page on the same level as the current home, so I could just switch betwen them... Thanks!
