    Hello,

     

    You can open your site in SharePoint Designer, then locate your custom page at root node. Right click your custom page in “Folder list” pane, and select “set as home page”, then it is done.

  • Try to access "Site Welcome Page" page directly from its url --> /_layouts/AreaWelcomePage.aspx.

    Also you mentioned that "publishing infrastructure" feature has been enabled under Site Collection Features. What about "Office SharePoint Server Publishing" feature under Site Features? If that one is also enabled, you should be seeing Welcome Page link in Look & Feel section.

  • is it a publishing site?.As a workaround  you can upload ur page and rename it to default.aspx then it should automatically pick it up
    as welcome page.

  • Hi,

    Try to go to the site itself and choos edit page, then in the Page Editing Toolbar choos edit page and see if you can do it there. The page you have made or want to make could probably be done directly from the Pages document library on the site.
