Support » Fixing WordPress » How do I remove header menu from HOME page only?

  • Resolved treadlightly



    I am using the free minimatica theme and have made some changes to it.

    in header.php i have added:

    <nav id=”access” role=”navigation”>
    <?php wp_nav_menu( array( ‘theme_location’ => ‘header_nav’, ‘container_id’ => ‘header-nav’, ‘container_class’ => ‘nav’, ‘fallback_cb’ => ‘minimatica_nav_menu’ ) ); ?>
    </nav><!– #access –>

    which added a navigation menu to my header. it is perfect but i want to hide it from the HOME page and only show it on all other pages.

    is there any way to do this?

    Wrap the menu in a conditional tag. Try:

    <?php if ( !is_front_page() ): ?>
    <nav id="access" role="navigation">
    <?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'theme_location' => 'header_nav', 'container_id' => 'header-nav', 'container_class' => 'nav', 'fallback_cb' => 'minimatica_nav_menu' ) ); ?>
    </nav><!-- #access -->
    <?php endif; ?>

    This says “if it’s NOT the homepage, display the menu.”

    Excellent! Glad it worked out. Conditional tags are awesome. 🙂

    Hi, I’m trying to do the opposite thing. I want my nav menu only on the pages that have my “front page template” applied, but not on all the other pages. Here is what I have in my header.php

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html <?php language_attributes(); ?>>
    <meta charset=”<?php bloginfo( ‘charset’ ); ?>” />
    <title><?php wp_title(); ?></title>
    <?php wp_head(); ?>
    <body id=”<?php prima_option(‘themelayout’) ?>” <?php body_class(); ?>>
    <?php if(prima_get_option(‘usernav’)&&class_exists(‘WP_eCommerce’)) get_template_part( ‘flexi-usernav’ ); ?>
    <div id=”flexi-wrapper”>

    What do I change to get it to only show my nav on the home page?

    Thanks so much!

    I’m guessing at how your nav gets generated, but this should be close:

    if ( is_front_page() ) {
      get_template_part( 'flexi-usernav' );

    I have similar needs. I want to create a custom template for individual image gallery pages. However, since these are pages for clients who wish to show these to their clients, I want to exclude any signs of my site’s identity, ie. page should have no logo, no menu, nothing except for the gallery.

    Creating a custom template is fairly clear to me, but it seams I may need to either customize my header file or even create a separate, custom header file dedicated to this template.

    Please advise…thanks!
