I have just started using Orchard and started playing around with it. I created a new page and set this as my new homepage but clicking the set as home page checkbox has no effect. In the end , I resorted to removing the default homepage but now the whole site blows up (I am running from the VS Source). Is there a reason I could not set the new home page and also, how can I get the site back after having deleted the homepage (I assume the other page is still there somewhere).
Also, running from VS seems very slow. Is it only module development I would need the source for?

Thanks in advance

Enable the Alias UI feature, go into the list of aliases and create a new one for what you want to be the new home page.
