    I’m using the ocean mist theme and would like to have a “home” tab at the top so users can return to the home page from elsewhere in the blog. The only way I know to create new tabs is add a page, but if I create a “home” page then it is just a blank page. What else can I try?

    Before we answer that, you must give us a link to your blog, or link your nickname to your blog (as explained in the Sticky “8 Things to Know”).

    Try this in the title of a page

    <a href="http://blogofthebutterfly.wordpress.com/">Home </a>

    Note that you need to have the space after the word home.

    Thanks – we need that, first because we get an awful lot of questions from people who mistakenly come here while they have a wordpress.ORG blog, second because often we have to see the blog in order to find out what exactly a problem is or if a particular solution is applicable.

    See here:

    An alternative is to write a short note in a text widget (placed in the top of the sidebar) informing readers that to return to the homepage they can click on the title of the blog.

    Hey there, panaghistisadam :) BTW – how come your nick doesn’t link to your blog? :)

    Thank you Vivian! That worked!

    @vivianpaige: Hehe, I knew I had it coming… My blog is in Greek, which would be meaningless to most or all of you – and I wouldn’t like to have my texts undergo the disfiguring torture of auto-translators. My blog is eponymous, and my (also horrible looking in English) username is my real name and surname, so Greek readers can easily find me. (If you’re really curious, I can give you the link.)

    Well, I figured I’d ask before someone else did :)

    whirlabout – glad that worked
