    So my theme, Dyne, does not support custom navigation. It has a built in HOME button that is the blog by default. When I try and get rid of a blog and have a static page, it mimics whatever page I have set as the main landing page so ANNOYINGLY i end up having 2 HOME pages that display the same content.

    I simply want this built in HOME page gone. It’s built in so I can’t simply select it in pages and delete it. It was meant to be forced to be a blog page. Is there any way to hide this “HOME” page with CSS from the navigation?

    Here is my website and the HOME button is what i want gone off the menu using CSS. I am limited in CSS knowledge so I’d appreciate a code to put in my child theme to help me get rid of it

  • Oh I solved it… the problem was in the header.php

    I had to delete the built in HOME in there. For more help refer to this post.. it’s where I found my answer if anyone else has this problem:

    Try changing this in header.php:

    <ul id="menu">
      <li><a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/" class="active">Home</a></li>
      <?php wp_list_pages('title_li='); ?>
    </ul>

    to this:

    <ul id="menu">
      <?php wp_list_pages('title_li='); ?>
    </ul>

    haha yes keesiemeijer.. i just figured that out haha I was looking and looking all last night!

    Thanks!

    Consult the theme dev. or use one with support for your issues…

    LOL Swanson.. that wasn’t a very helpful answer….

    The theme was built in 2008 so I doubt the developer is around or cares. And just because it doesn’t support custom navigation (which really sucks) but fills all your other needs as a good backbone theme you can customize… doesn’t mean you have to abandon it to one that supports custom nav. Things are usually fixable with tweaking things or in this case… removing a simple line in the header. 😉

    Use a trusted theme.
