How to set a modern home page in classic SharePoint Online site
First of all, we have to create a Top Level Site or Parent Site in this Modern SharePoint Site. Then go to the “Site Contents” of that Site. Click on “+New” and then click on “SubSite”, now a SubSite will Create which is a Classic or old team SharePoint Site like this below screenshot.
But here we need a Modern SharePoint SubSite. So we will see how we can create a new modern SharePoint Online team site home page.
First, we will create a new SharePoint page and then set that page as the new home page. To create a Modern SharePoint page, follow the below steps-
Go to the “Pages” which is present at the left navigation of this “TS Corporate Portal” Site. Then click on to the “+New” which is present at the top of the “pages”. Click on “Wiki Page” as like given screenshot.
After clicking “Wiki Page”, a “New Item” page will come. Give the New Page name whereas I gave “TSPortal” and then click on to “Create” for creating a new Item.
After creating a New Page, a page will display like this below screenshot.
Now we have to go for a new Sub Site Home Page, so go to the “Site Contents”, click on “+New” and then click on “Page” for creating a Modern Sub Site.
In this Screenshot, go to the “Edit” mode and give a Title for “TS Corporate Portal” Sub Site. Here I was giving “New TS Corporate Portal” and go for “Publish”.
After Publishing the page, again go to the “Pages” which is present at the left navigation of Site. Here we can see our page in the “Site Pages” whereas I created “New TS Corporate Portal”. Just select that page. Then go to the “…” option which is present at the top of the page. Click on “Make homepage” like below.
Now copy the URL of this Sub Site and open this in another window. Here we can see the new Sub Site as “New TS Corporate Portal” as like below screenshot.
