I need to add a “Home” link to Pages menu. Please help.

  • First, please understand that I am a complete newb, and a coding dumb-dumb.

    I would like to have a simple “Home” link at the top of my list of Pages.

    In case it helps, here is the blog link:
    http://megahurt.net/bandgrade/

    as a side note, I would also love to get rid of the text up in my header (bandgrade).

  • For getting rid of the “Bandgrade” text that appears in the header, try first going to wp-admin/options and in that first screen, delete anything that appears in the box next to “weblog title”.

    2. Add this to your stylesheet where h1 is defined

    h1 {....
    display: none;
    }

    vkaryl, I beg to differ: that would result in not having title in the browsers, in search engine results, feeds etc.
    So, I consider it not a good solution.

    Huh…. Okay, moshu, but I do it that way all the time, and don’t notice any problems…. of course, I don’t give a flying you know what about the SEs so maybe that’s the difference.

    Oh… well moshu, what IS a good suggestion?

    I just noticed that in the link you posted, it says “this is a 1.5.1 trick only”. I’m on 2.0.5 I think. Just installed it last night.

    I also can’t find anything about “h1”. The closest thing in there is “h2”. It says:

    h2 {
    color: #666;
    font-size: 14px;
    text-align: left;

    OK, let’s get back to the basics.

    And using it you could figure out it is blogTitle – not h1 (though it is not a wise alternative…)

    When in older topics it says 1.5 only – it refers to the fact it wouldn’t work in older (e.g. 1.2.x) versions: there was a great change in coding when 1.5 came out.

    Ok, some progress. I did get it to add the “Home” menu item (thank you!). Unfortunately it also added a weird extra gray line under my pages menu.

    edit: i also got the blog title to go away! thank you so much… now for that wacky underline.
