    Help with home pages within Umbraco

    Hi, need some assistance as to manage home pages within an Umbraco install that currently features 3 different sites as per layout below which is an edited example.

    Explaining the above, all will have different domain/hostnames.

    Within Cars English Site I have created a page titled say 'English Home'.  What I need to know to do is if i tried to visit how would I assign this ' English Home' page to be displayed.

    Likewise within Cars German site there would be a page titled 'German Home', how would show 'German Home'

    Hope you guys can help

    Many Thanks

    This is crazy easy in Umbraco thanks to the manage hostnames dialog. Basically if your right click on a home node you should see a 'manage hostnames option'. This basically sets the root node depending on the domain your coming from. More details here

    From this dialog you can also specify the language of the site if your making use of the dictionary. Warren's made a screencast about the dictionary magic here

    +1 to Duncan's answer

    When running multilingual sites you should also be aware that you should set the "useDomainPrefixes" value in the umbracoSettings.config file to true and of course you need to make sure the sites have been setup in IIS with the corresponding bindings.
