I have read the documentation and forums. I am beginning to feel like an idiot now.
I am using WordPress basically as a CMS with pages ONLY. The site is TavernHouse dot com.
I set the page (I named it 'Home' now) as my Static Front Page but it still shows up as an additional page within the navigation bar. It does not show up in the side bar as another link. I've tried to 'unpublish' it too.
If I uncheck the Static Page option and just put Post there is no link to the front page.
I am familiar with html but just learning php. Can someone explain how to fix this as if I was a 6 year old? That's how old I feel after working on this for a few weeks!!
