Static home page (5 posts)

    I've created a page called Home Page and set this as a static front page and another page called Blog where I have set as the posts page.

    The problem I am having is that now I have two pages as Home! One is called Home and the other is called Home Page. But the contents of both are identical. All I want is to have one page called Home as the Home Page, but I can't seem to achieve this.

    Is it a bug or am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks,

    Jon

    My guess is that when you "edit" "pages" you'll see both pages of which you need only one. If not, then your theme has a hardcoded 'home' link which you need to remove, probably from the header.php.

    As Gangleri says....

    Your menu proberly has something like this...

    <ul>
    <li>Home link here</li>
    <?php wp_list_pages(); />
    </ul>

    Remove the home link part, like so...

    <ul>
    <?php wp_list_pages(); />
    </ul>

    Since your home page is an actual PAGE, it will still get listed...
