    Hi

    I am new to WordPresss & have adapted pretty well!!

    I need to change the home link so it goes to the current post.

    I would appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.

    Thanks.

    As long as you are not using a static page, home should go the the page you display posts on.

    You could set the number of posts to be displayed to 1 or change something in the functions file. I am sort of time so that is all I can suggest now.

    Thanks kmessinger!

    When you have some time I would like to know what to change in the functions.php file for this to work. I'm still learning php.

    I would like to display the full post, as I am only showing the excerpts of the posts, changing the number of posts displayed to 1 is not an option.

    Dashboard/settings/reading would be where you change summary or full text. Why is changing the number of posts to one not an option?

    As I have a link on the blog to display all posts - which would result in a very long page if the summary option was not selected!

    It's a request from the client - they just want the 'home' link to display the latest post
