Can't change home page from blog

Hi Guys,

I have a fairly simple installation of Orchard running, using the Blog Recipe.  I have created new content pages that I would like to set as the new Home page for the website, but for some reason I cannot deselect the blog as my default home page?  I have unchecked the Set as Home Page button, on the Manage Blog section, but this seems to have no effect, even when I try to set another page as the home page it does not seem to have any effect.

Is there any way to adjust the default home page by adjusting the database directly? Possibly changing some of the records in the Routable_RoutePart or the Settings_SiteSettingsPartRecord table?

Any help would be appreciated with this.

Just check that box on the new home page and publish.

Bertrand, thank you that, I didn't realise that I had to republish while I was actually editing the content page, thought that Saving would do the trick.

Thanks for all your help.
