    Hi,

    I want to create a home page link on my website, however, I am not sure how to do it. I don't want to create a static page as my front page is updated by my posts. How do I do it? should I just create a page and then do a redirect?

    Thanks,

    The menu is most likely in header.php of your theme.

    Appearance>menus
    create a custom menu and make it active
    add a custom link, and make the URL the URL to your home page, and set the Label as Home

    Thanks bheadrick, but then it cancels out my existing page based menu

    Go to Appearance in the admin menu and see if your theme allows you to create custom menus. If so, you can add the link there without editing any php files.
