    Hello folks, I’m very new in the Publii world and I’m not a technical person. According to Publii’s slogan, this platform is also for beginners but that is proving quite the opposite so far. I am using the Simple Theme right now because it is the only free one with a top banner in the homepage.

    I want a simple website with a simple menu that contains 4 options: home, about me, portfolio, rates. It seems everything is done by posts so that is what I did. Created my menus and linked them to the corresponding post. Now I have three very specific questions on how to make it all flow better:

    • I am unable to see an item in my menu called “Home”. Even though clicking in the name of the site will take the user there, users are used to a home page. Is it possible to add one without having dupes and affecting my SEO?
    • I don’t want top banners for all of my pages just for the main page – how can I remove the banner from the rest of the pages?
    • Is there an easy way to add a contact form in Publii websites?

    Thanks so much in advance 😉

    Are you talking about the use or customization? If the first one is not too easy for you should consider changing the platform.

    Its a good UX solution and that can only increase the value of your site in terms of SEO.

    It requires a change in core theme files.

    It depends on what hosting option you use; anyway have a look at https://serverless.css-tricks.com/services/forms
