Deleting the Home Page (5 posts)

    I have created a Home page and a Blog page. The Home page I created says welcome. I ended up with 2 home navigation tabs. I want to delete the first Home page that shows the posts and create my own html page for the home page.

    How do I do this?

    I read through this a couple of times and I am not clear on this instruction:edit the appropriate template file featuring the code of the navigation bar with the template tag wp_list_pages. Set the parameters to change the link title.

    How do I find out the appropriate template file?

    Navigation Bars

    Some themes have top navigation bar containing links to Pages. By default most themes set "Home" as a link to the home page - in this case the static front page. Since you have created a separate page with the title "Home", there is a likelihood of another link text appearing as "Home".

    To change it, edit the appropriate template file featuring the code of the navigation bar with the template tag wp_list_pages. Set the parameters to change the link title.

    Unfortunately since I am not sure what theme you are actually using, finding the appropriate template file requires a little digging on your part.

    If you have access to your files, this is where great search tools can come to the rescue. Such applications that can search multiple files at once for a particular pattern of text, in this case "wp_list_pages". Sorry I am not familiar with Windows in this regard. I think one application may be Notepad++ , but I can recommend many ways on a Mac OSX (the first being simply Spotlight).

    If you are using the WordPress theme editor, I would suggest either looking for the template file one by one, or contacting the theme's author directly.

    Hi, dleonte!

    To change it, edit the appropriate template file featuring the code of the navigation bar with the template tag wp_list_pages. Set the parameters to change the link title.

    I'm going to make a wild guess here. I think you are using Studio Press Education theme.

    If not, please pay not attention to me what-so-ever! :-)

    If so, you may want to take a look in the "header.php" file around lines 86 to 91 or so.

    You may also want to review this before hand, just to make sure that all of your ducks are in a row, and there isn't an easier or different solution for your static page.

    Good luck!
