Hi there,

I'm using the Notepad-White 1.0.4 theme. I would like to rename and edit the "Home" page that is set by default.

Let's say I create Page 1 and Page 2. They both correctly appear in the menu. The problem is the "Home" is still in the menu. So it displays 3 pages in the menu whereas only 2 exist. When you click on "Home", Page 1 appears by default. I want to edit "Home" or at least remove it from the menu. How do I do that?

Best regards,
Laurel

Hi,

the current homepage is the default "index" page, but you can change that via wp-dashboard > Settings > Reading.

that should do the trick,
Ronald

Hi,

Thanks for the quick answer.

No it doesn't fix my problem. I have already changed that in "Reading"; the page I chose appears as the homepage but the problem is that "HOME" still appears in the menu. That's what I want to remove because there are 3 pages indicated in the menu whereas there are only 2 pages.

How do I remove "HOME" from the menu?

Hi Laurel,

can you add a link to your site?

And you can either remove Home, or remove the page that you have now set as home page from the navigation, which would you prefer? Need to be able to see your site though to provide targeted instructions on how to do so,

Hi Ronald,

Sure. Here is the link of the site I'm working on: http://youcandrawportraits.net63.net/
As you can see there are 2 times "HOME" in the menu, whereas I created only 1 page called "HOME". I want to remove the 1st "HOME" on the left that I don't have any control on.

When I click either on the 1st "HOME" on the left or the 2nd one on the right, I get to the same page.

How do I remove the 1st "HOME" on the left?

Laurel

Hi,

first the easiest solution, which is to remove the 2nd one on the left (sorry!). You can do so by adding the following code at the end of your themes stylesheet style.css (go to wp-dashboard > Appearance > Editor and open style.css (opened by default):

#menu li.page_item.page-item-404,
#menu li.page_item.page-item-404 a {
	display: none;
}

To remove the 1st one, you need to hack the code in the header.php file. Locate, and delete (around line 43) this line:

<li class="<?php if (is_home()) { echo "current_page_item"; } ?>"><a href="<?php echo get_settings('home'); ?>/">Home</a></li>

hope that helps,
Ronald
