    I would like to have a link on the home page to a blog Category.
    It seems links are only possible to Pages and Posts.
    The documentation doesn't seem to have covered this points.
    Any answer here?

    Is your home page a static Page?

    Forgive me, I've seen once where the option is for a static page, but can't find it right now under wp-admin.
    But I did look at the Menu option, and it looks promising regarding my question...

    Just found it, no it's not a static page.

    In that case, your site's home page is being generated on demand by WordPress. There is no "page" that you can add a link to. What you could do is add the link manually to your theme's index.php template file - possibly via a child theme.

    There is an option to make it a static page. Will this change the situation, and what are the implications of making it static?
