Another newbie … and manged to do something real dumb. Deleted the ‘Home’ page …. but it still shows up on my title bar on the live site. The end result is that I can’t edit it (doesn’t show up in my MANAGE PAGES but on the live site its still there as my home page and displays an error message.
In the theme that you’re using at the moment “home” is the top level of your blog where visitors first “arrive”. It can’t be deleted. I suspect that you’ve got another page in there that has no title and that is what is causing the gap between the links.
