The page that loads when no controller name is given in the URL is the public/index.html page (eg: http://localhost:3000/) Now this is a pure HTML page so I cannot use any link_to tags or yield tags, etc. My navigation bar is in my application layout (app/views/layouts/application.html.erb). This is what provides the ability to navigate. So how do I access this layout if the home page that loads is index.html which has no reference to any of my rails views? Basically I want to know how to create a "home" page with rails (without always having to type controller/action in the URL. Thanks in advance.

And remarkably, on the default Rails "home" page are three points under "Getting started", the last being 3. Set up a default route and remove or rename this file Routes are setup in config/routes.rb. You might want to look at -- i.e., read the comments in -- that file.
