Changing the Name of the Home Page (4 posts)

    Surprisingly, I cannot find how to change the name of the Home page. In my case, I want it to say "Movie Reviews" instead of "Home" on the nav bar. When I go to Pages, I only see the second page (which used to be About Us and is now called Showtimes and Tickets). Any idea?

    My site is http://www.FastMovieReviews.com.

    Thanks!

    Many themes have 'Home' hardcoded in the header.php template along with the template tag, wp_list_pages().

    Resources:
    Stepping Into Template Tags
    Stepping Into Templates
    Template Hierarchy

    Just as a note, when Version 2.7 is released, the template tag, wp_page_menu(), will offer the ability to add Home without needing to hardcode it in something like header.php.

    You have to change the tab in header.php of your theme, where you see:

    <div id="navbar">
    		<ul class="menu">
    			<li class="current_page_item">

    Change "Home" to "Movie Reviews".
