[resolved] Cutline 1.4 Hack - How Do I Get Around this Problem? (5 posts)

    As mentioned above, I'm using the Cutline 1.4 template. It's a great template but there's a small problem. I switched my 'blog' to another page, using this hack (http://codex.wordpress.org/Making_Your_Blog_Appear_in_a_Non-Root_Folder).

    You can view my site here: http://www.todaysteenwriter.com/. See how the 'blog' is set under current issue?

    Switching it over went just fine. So I created a home page and set WordPress to recognize that new one as my homepage. Unfortunately for me, there's a "frontpage" and a "home". This seems to happen no matter what I set as my homepage (Example: I set "about" as my homepage, then the navigation reads FrontPage, About, etc) Is there any way to delete the "front page"?

    Thank you in advance to anyone who can help! :)

    Go into your header file and change the navigation section - this should help you do it:

    Basically you just need to get rid of the part that says Front Page OR you can exclude the home page, whichever you'd prefer.

    I finally figured out the answer to this. Took me a while but in header.php it said something like 'home' and page order. I deleted the home part and it worked like a charm. : )

    Ok, here are the official instructions. Go to header.php. Find this code:

    <div id="top-menu">
    	<ul>
    <li><a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>">Home</a></li>
    <?php wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order&depth=1&title_li='); ?>
    
    	</ul>
    
    	</div>

    Take out this line:

    <a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>">Home</a>

    It's this line that's coded into many templates that gets the home page to show up twice. It's a total bear but it's a really easy hack once you know what to look for.

    Hope this helps someone else who's looking for the answer. : )
