I’m using Fauna, and have set a static home page (called “1.0 Home”) by following the instrux in Support.
However, I can’t seem to get the default “blog” link to disappear from the header. I can’t exclude “blog” in the Pages widget because this page doesn’t seem to have a page ID (it shows nothing after the blog name in URL). And I can’t make it a child of another page because it’s not appearing in my pages list.
Thanks for the link. By the way, you can link your username to your blog URL by going to users > your profile and putting your blog URL into the “website” field and then clicking the update profile button.
Sorry, there is no way to remove the “blog” link since it is defined in the underlying theme files and we do not have access to those.
Your choices are to either live with it or change to a theme that does not have a “home/blog/front page” link in the top navigation. This blog post lists which themes do and do not have a home/blog/front page link in the header: http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/05/06/the-home-tab/ .
