    First, please understand that I am a complete newb, and a coding dumb-dumb.

    I would like to have a simple "Home" link at the top of my list of Pages.

    In case it helps, here is the blog link:

    as a side note, I would also love to get rid of the text up in my header (bandgrade).

    For getting rid of the "Bandgrade" text that appears in the header, try first going to wp-admin/options and in that first screen, delete anything that appears in the box next to "weblog title".

    2. Add this to your stylesheet where h1 is defined

    h1 {....
    display: none;
    }

    vkaryl, I beg to differ: that would result in not having title in the browsers, in search engine results, feeds etc.
    So, I consider it not a good solution.

    Huh.... Okay, moshu, but I do it that way all the time, and don't notice any problems.... of course, I don't give a flying you know what about the SEs so maybe that's the difference.

    Oh... well moshu, what IS a good suggestion?

    I just noticed that in the link you posted, it says "this is a 1.5.1 trick only". I'm on 2.0.5 I think. Just installed it last night.

    I also can't find anything about "h1". The closest thing in there is "h2". It says:

    h2 {
    color: #666;
    font-size: 14px;
    text-align: left;

    OK, let's get back to the basics.
    Helpful guide to find your styles:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Finding_Your_CSS_Styles

    And using it you could figure out it is blogTitle - not h1 (though it is not a wise alternative...)

    When in older topics it says 1.5 only - it refers to the fact it wouldn't work in older (e.g. 1.2.x) versions: there was a great change in coding when 1.5 came out.

    Ok, some progress. I did get it to add the "Home" menu item (thank you!). Unfortunately it also added a weird extra gray line under my pages menu.

    edit: i also got the blog title to go away! thank you so much... now for that wacky underline.
