Setting a static default post as home page for site root (Ghost Pro Hosted)


I’ve got Ghost Pro hosted and I’m failing on the really really simple most basic of functions… setting my home page!
So, I made a bunch of stories, tagged them as pages, removed the default tags and pages, set the /welcome/ page as “featured”, and, having removed all other tags, gave it a tag of “home”.


Then I tried the redirect feature:

  "from": "/" ,
  "to":  "/welcome-to-kab/",
  "permanent": false

but, of course, this just gives infinite loops (as I kind of expected it to).

The only other way I can see to do it is but this is WAAAAAYYYY overboard for simply making a default homepage.

I’m clearly missing something incredibly obvious. Unless I’m not, in which case my only option would be to move from hosted to my own VPS and use the nginx redirect option.

Any ideas?

(there’s no blogging element to the site - it’s just a site, so all stories are pages).
