    How do I remove the word “home” from the home page? I want the menu item “Home” in the menu, but there’s no need to have the word “Home” in the actual page. Is there a general answer, or do you need to see my specific blog? I don’t have it set for public access yet.

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

    The blog is private so we haven’t clue which theme it’s wearing and if you have your purchased the custom design upgrade or not so we can’t provide an accurate answer … hint!

    To add a Home link, or remove the built-in Home link, and/or rename it see here under “Other options, special cases and tricks”> http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/

    For the Duster and Twenty Eleven themes:

    The tab in the top nav menu doesn’t have to be the actual page title, so here’s what you can do:

    Edit the pages and delete their titles.
    Go to Appearance>Menus and create a custom menu. Select your (now nameless) pages from the Pages module, click Add to Menu. Click the arrow at the right side of each page module to open it, type the title in the Navigation Label field. Click Save Menu, select the menu from the Theme Locations pulldown, click Save. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/duster-theme-double-headers?replies=5#post-616357

    That’s why I asked whether this was a general question. Blog is now visible to all. Thanks.

    That looks like it will work for Twenty Twelve. I’ll try right now. Thanks.

    Yes–that’s the solution in Twenty Twelve:

    Edit the pages and delete their titles.
    Go to Appearance>Menus and create a custom menu. Select your (now nameless) pages from the Pages module, click Add to Menu. Click the arrow at the right side of each page module to open it, type the title in the Navigation Label field. Click Save Menu, select the menu from the Theme Locations pulldown, click Save. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/duster-theme-double-headers?replies=5#post-616357

    Thanks for the prompt response.

    Hooray! It’s cool to know that the workaround for removing Page titles also works on Twenty Twelve. :) Happy blogging!
