Support » Fixing WordPress » Send Home link to different website

  • Resolved Alex


    Hey, I have been searching for awhile but nothing seems to do what I’m looking for so I thought I’d ask.

    I want the “home” button in the nav menu to go to a non-wordpress webpage.

    In other words, instead of “home” going to (where it’s currently going) I want it to go to

    I know basics of coding, and can tweak stuff if you tell me where to put it, but I know almost no php (I’m an HTML guy), so you’ll have to walk me through it a bit.

    Thank you so much for your help!

  • I do not know if I can help you.

    Do you want home page to display a website with one page? That is you could incorporate that web page into your home page.

    If that is the case you could set up wordpress homepage to be a static page. Firstly create a new page that will be your new home page. Don’t call it ‘home’ call it something else like ‘Alex Home’ or something. Then create an new empty page and give it a name like ‘Alex Blog’, leave this page blank, don’t write anything in it. Then go to your dashboard under Settings >> Readings and set the radio button at ‘Front page displays’ to ‘static page’. Below that field set your home page as ‘Alex Home’ and your blog page as ‘Alex Blog’.

    You could then
    1. Write whatever html in your new home page
    2. Use an <iframe > tag to insert a html page to be displayed in your home page
    3. Use a redirect to redirect to another website. I need to think about the redirect, not sure if it can work, depends on implementation.

    Hello Alex,

    This should do the trick for you.

    Log in to wp-admin

    go to appearance

    under appearance click on menus.

    in the right side there should be a home widget style tab.

    click it to dropdown

    now you can set your url to whatever you want.

    If you don’t have a home widget style bar on the right..

    then you’ll want to add it from the left.

    Hope that helps.

    forgot to add this link to help you further in creating menus.

    I ended up making a custom menu per Cahfx.

    Thank you all!
