    How do I remove the word Home from my page and menu?

    Here is my site: http://cellphonebusinessopportunityincharleston.com/

    Please be very specific because I am a novice. Thank you!

  2. To remove it from the Menu, I would go to Appearances > Menu and create a custom menu and add whatever you want. If you don't want home, just don't put it in there.

    As for displaying it on your home page, that's a bit more complicated and you will first need to me a child theme.

    You mentioned that your a novice, so you can decide is making a child them is a challenge you would like to undertake. Otherwise, a good alternative, would be to change the title of the page from Home to something more engaging like "Your one stop shop to cell phone... " ... It's hard for me to come up with a good headline, since there's not much content there. But not only will this make for a more engaging site it will also be good for search engines to figure out what your site is about.

    Hello.
    I am also a novice who would also like to remove the word HOME from the home page.
    How should I retitle the page if there are no "No Pages Found" on the PAGES page? Am I in the wrong place?

    Thank you very much.

  4. to remove the word HOME from the home page

    to remove the word from the menu, in your child theme (if you haven't created a child theme yet, review @Christine's reply) edit functions.php and add for instance:

    function twentytwelvechild_page_menu_args( $args ) {
    	$args['show_home'] = false;
    	return $args;
    }
    add_filter( 'wp_page_menu_args', 'twentytwelvechild_page_menu_args', 40 );

    to remove the word from your static front page, edit style.css of the child theme, and add:

    .home .entry-title { display: none; }

    I have the same problem as the original post-er.

    When I try to create a custom menu without Home via the control panel, the new menu takes but the drop-down menu options become disabled.

    When I tried adding to the code above to a fuctions.php child theme, it didn't work (and it took my site down).

    Whoops, nevermind the above. I WAS able to get Home removed by playing around with the control panel.

    I definitely would NOT recommend changing your functions.php, as it is unnecessary.
