    How do I make "Home" my static front page?

    I found that old explanation. Since I have version 2.6.3, I wonder if it will still work.

    Look at the Front page displays options in Administration > Settings > Reading.

    I created a new page called Home. Then I went to header.php and deleted the part with title>Home<
    Then I went to Settings>Reading and clicked Static Front Page. Then I clicked Home. Bingo. Done.

    I don't know how old this post is, but erika_conn, You are a genius!

    I am using wp 2.7 and this is what i deleted in the header.php file:

  6. /">Home
  7. That totally killed the constant link to the home page, so now there is only one link to home instead of 2. Thanks!

    the above post didn't show everything:

    what i deleted was everything between and including the 2 "list" tags < li > almost at the very bottom of header.php.

    Erika and JRyan you are both absolute gems !

    Erika's exact 1-2-3 help was terrific. Her 'home' reference didn't jive with what I was seeing in header.php, but JRyan's extra "what I deleted" (even though your exact code didn't appear) was what nailed it !

    For anyone else still scratching their heads, I'm using the Portfolio Press theme, my deletable 'home' in header.php, was in the middle of a 'php if' reference and a 'php get settings' reference and right after the 'ul id = menu' about 10 lines from the bottom of the page.

    Whew ! I feel tremendous right now, this is just what I wanted ! No blogs here, just a snappy CMS / Portfolio page, woot !
