Normally, you can make a news folder of a folder in Webhare by right-clicking on the folder and choosing ‘Edit type’ -> ‘News folder’. However, this won’t work for your home page, because the button HOME isn’t represented as a folder in Webhare.
If you want to show news messages at your home page:
Create a new news folder and name this folder ‘news’, but do not give this folder a title. This way, the folder is not shown in the menu of your site. Next, open the properties of the index file of the root folder of your site. Here you can choose (at the first tab) if you want to show a news folder at your home page and from which news folder the news must be shown. Also see the image below.
