Currently, my OpenCart store is setup as my homepage. If you type in my URL it directs you to the store. I want to make it so that there is a homepage with basic information about my business with links to a contact page, store page, and blog page. I have the blog setup to be a subdirectory already, is there an easy way to make a homepage and transfer my OpenCart store to a subdirectory?

Hello Jacob,

Thanks for the question. If you want to use a different URL for your store, then you should move your store files to the new URL, and then use our article on Changing the OpenCart URL. You can then use your primary domain for an informational site that links out to the store. For more information, check out our article on moving an OpenCart installation, see OpenCart installation.

It's a little work, but that would be the more appropriate way to make the change to your OpenCart installation. Hope that helps provide the information you need!

Let us know if you need any further assistance.
