    Hi,

    My front page is my posts page, which is what I want, but I want my ‘home’ page to take you back to the front page (at the moment, it is just a blank page). It is currently possible to return to the front page by clicking on my blog title, but I want the ‘home’ button I have created to achieve the same result.

    So I have created the button, but can’t work out how to link it. Any help?

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

    OK-did you create the home button in the Custom Menu? If so, just remove the “/home/” ending you added to your URL http://petercharles.wordpress.com/ and it will link correctly to your front page.

    If you want to have a “Home” link to the front page in your navbar, then the best way would be to create a Custom Menu and add it as a special Page link. Once you have created your menus, click “View All” under “Pages” and you’ll see “Home” waiting to be added. There’s no need to actually create a page for it. Remember to save your menu.
