And in the “Errors and redirections” section edit the “Custom Redirects” like this :

a) In “From” section add “/” (Forward Slash)

Tips on How You Can Customize Your Landing Page Using Post Editor:-

Switch to the HTML mode and change the page settings from the right side as shown in the screenshot below.


Landing Page Post Editor Setting


First we should add CSS Coding by which we can hide our Sidebar, Header, Footer. I mean to say if you want to make your blog's main section full width then copy below CSS code and paste it on post editor.

<style>
#sidebar-wrapper, #midsidebar-wrapper, .gapad2, .blog-pager, .post-header-line-1, .post-footer { display:none !important;}

#main-wrapper { width:98%!important;}

.post { width:98%!important; }
</style>
This code works well for original blogger template, But you can also try it on Custom Made/Magazine style blogger templates.

Now to use the CSS then just put your CSS code using the &lt;/style&gt; tag. For example:-
<style>

#my-landing-page-header {

width: 100%;

background: #000;

font-size: 20px;

padding: 20px 0px;

color: #FFF

}

</style>
Now you can call the above CSS style in HTML to apply it. For example:-
<div id="my-landing-page-header"> Hello World! This is my First Landing </div>

Result is this:-

Hello World! This is my First Landing Page

Wondering if we could use the CSS code we have added to our template code using a conditional tag inside the post editor itself?
