rename WebHome title for start page

Dear Foswiki team,

I'm currently trying to change the title of the start page of my foswiki. It points to "WebHome < Home < DAMASK" ( but it should have a more descriptive name. Is there a way to set it for this page only?

I see a couple of options here. Probably the easiest option would be to define the %HOMETOPIC% macro in WebPreferences (in your Home web) and set it to any topic you choose. Then, in this web the top link of breadcrumbs will link to the topic you selected.

If you are using NatSkin, another option would be to change the displayed name for the WebHome topic by setting the TOPICTITLE preference. Then, even though the topic name would still be WebHome, your set topic title would be displayed in most cases.

Another possibility is setting a redirect from the WebHome to a different page, e.g. "MainPage". I did so at my wiki.
