    I may have posted this issue before but I cannot find if there is a response or not. All versions of WP I ahve used since 2.3 have always had a button in the dashboard - the upper left hand corner - where I could beturn quickly to my site's homepage. My version of WP 3.o lacks this seemingly essetnial little utility. Am I alone in this or does somebody else have the same problem? Not a major issue but a hassle as I have to either click 'back' or type in my site's URL to check out updates on the actual homepage.

    Try adding a site name in Settings/General.

    Ah actually did not work. It did put the button to click to go to my homepage but it also put the name of my blog in ugly letters on my custom header. Also, as I recall I never had to do that before. Seems to me to be a basic function that is missing on my dashboard and wonder if anyone else has this issue. But thanks esmi.

    I miss that button, too. Was so helpful when building or editing a site. Can that be added to 3.0?

    Thanks,
    Christine

    I just read further on this post and the next post and I see your response tells me how to find it. It's fine now. Thank you.

    I still have this issue: I have a custom header and if I add a site name in Settings/General it will place whatever I type there on my homepage header image and it looks like crap to be frank. I have never had to do add anything to Settings before and there was a button in the upper left hand corner to take me immediately to my homepage.
