Problem with static page name

  1. Up until my blog was mistakenly suspended, last Thursday, my static page's name was exactly what I wanted it to be: "What It's All About". Since then, it has transformed into the mundane "Home". I have checked the settings and nothing has changed on that count.

    I would appreciate any help...

    The blog I need help with is imagineerebooks.wordpress.com.

  2. You mean the link in the top menu.
    The items on your top menu aren't arranged alphabetically. We cannot tell if you did this by assigning order numbers or by creating a custom menu. If you did it the second way, you can go to Appearance > Menus, and edit the "Home" item to change its label. If you did it the first way, you need to create a custom menu first.
    For details on custom menus see this post of mine:

  3. I do indeed, justpi. The menu is arranged by order numbers. I accept that a custom menu could get around the problem, but I'm confused as to how and why the name of the menu tab changed without warning in the first place. Surely that shouldn't happen? Is this some new WP feature or function that I missed being announced? It would seem rather worrying if arbitrary changes can occur without notice simply because a user isn't using a custom menu.

    (Thanks for the link ;) )

  4. P.S.

    I have altered the menu to a custom menu, but only to get the right details. I still feel some concern for newbies if these kind of changes are happening without warning!

  5. Up until my blog was mistakenly suspended, last Thursday, my static page's name was exactly what I wanted it to be: "What It's All About". Since then, it has transformed into the mundane "Home".

    Last Thursday was 18 April. Here's a cached page from 14 April:
    http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=cache:http://imagineerebooks.wordpress.com/&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8
    It shows "Home", so I'm not seeing any change, let alone an arbitrary one.
