    Hi,
    I do not find the 'Home' page in the 'pages'. I want to be able to change that into 'blog'. Do I have to edit the CSS for that? Can you please tell me what to change in that?
    Thanks,

    The header.php looks like this:

    <?php
    /**
    * The Header for our theme.
    *
    * Displays all of the <head> section and everything up till <div id="main">
    *
    * @package devwp
    * @since devwp 1.0
    */
    ?><!DOCTYPE html>
    <html <?php language_attributes(); ?>>
    <head>
    <meta charset="<?php bloginfo( 'charset' ); ?>" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
    <title><?php wp_title( '|', true, 'right' ); ?></title>
    <link rel="profile" href="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11" />
    <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo( 'pingback_url' ); ?>" />
    <!--[if lt IE 9]>
    <script src="<?php echo get_template_directory_uri(); ?>/js/html5.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <![endif]-->

    <?php wp_head(); ?>
    </head>

    <body <?php body_class(); ?>>
    <div id="wrapper" class="hfeed site">
    <?php do_action( 'before' ); ?>
    <div id="header-wrapper">
    <header id="masthead" class="site-header" role="banner">
    <hgroup>
    <h1 class="site-title">" title="<?php echo esc_attr( get_bloginfo( 'name', 'display' ) ); ?>" rel="home"><?php bloginfo( 'name' ); ?></h1>
    <h2 class="site-description"><?php bloginfo( 'description' ); ?></h2>
    </hgroup>

    <nav role="navigation" class="site-navigation main-navigation">
    <h1 class="assistive-text"><?php _e( 'Menu', 'devwp' ); ?></h1>
    <div class="assistive-text skip-link">"><?php _e( 'Skip to content', 'devwp' ); ?></div>

    <?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'theme_location' => 'primary' ) ); ?>
    </nav><!-- .site-navigation .main-navigation -->
    </header><!-- #masthead .site-header -->
    </div><!-- #header-wrapper -->
    <div id="main-wrapper">
    <div id="main" class="site-main">

    Hi,
    Not to mess up with the code you could create a new menu at admin->Appearance->Menu. Add your new menu to the Primary Menu at Themes Locations. Save. Go a bit down the page, find Pages, click View All. You'll see Home page there. Add it to your new menu and change Navigation Label to Blog.
