Landing page shows source code

With a previous version of bitbucket, when you first arrive at a repository landing page, the readme.md would be front and center. Now you see your source code folder structure with the readme underneath. This doesn't look good (or professional). Is there a way to fix this?

    I agree. I didn't even realise the readme.md was actually under the source code as even with a small repository it's not visible. I really dislike the comments beside the file structure a la github as this make little sense when a commit message was made for a file deep in the hierarchy. It's baffling and messy. Also, the branches are visible - why would you want the branch version of a landing page?

    From the settings of the repository, you can now create an entire wiki sub repository or use the 'overview' as the landing page from what I can tell (these are the closest to just displaying the readme.md).

    Please can there be a way to just have the readme.md as the landing page as before.

    There could be a single button or link to the source code / branches (in case external users don't know your symbols on the menu bar on the left).
