First day of testing WordPress :-)
Have setup a site at http://www.creativeyoungteam.com/ and installed the static-homepage plugin and edited home.php to give a customised homepage.
I then modified sidebar.php to insert a direct link to the site root for the 'Home' link, and exclude the automatic link to the page it derives from, id #6 :
<?php wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order&exclude=6&title_li=<h2>' . __('Navigate') . '</h2><a href="http://www.creativeyoungteam.com" title="Home">Home</a>'); ?>
This has produced a couple of problems I can't seem to fix:
1. The homepage link is prefixed with a backslash "\" for some reason, and thus doesn't work
2. The homepage link sits outside of the list of the other pages, and doesn't have the '>>' prefix which the other page links do.
If you look under 'Navigate' on the right at http://www.creativeyoungteam.com/ you should see what I mean...
Any tips much appreciated, have trawled through codex.wordpress.org already!
