    Hi there,

    I’m building a new blog, and I’d like to change the text in the top navigation bar. For new pages, the title is automatically inserted for the navigation text. But I want to change the text “Home” to something different for the front page.

    I’ve been cruising the forums and blogs for quite a while trying to find the answer to this.

    I’m using the theme Day Dream. See what I mean at markamerica.wordpress.com.

    Thank you!

    -Mark

    That’s built into the theme: you cannot modify it. If you dislike it that much, you can select a theme with no home tab.

    Is there a way I can ‘Home’ to the Navigation bar?

    @areseneal – yes, you can add Home to the navigation bar by writing a page with the title being the link.

    <a href="http://arsene-al.co.uk/">Home </a>

    Be sure to include the space after home.

    I’d like to know how to do this, too, because I want to add a Feed link to the top navigation.
    My theme is Connections by Vanillamist, and on this page (http://vanillamist.com/blog/?page_id=64), the theme creator tells you how to do this, but the instructions must use the old WordPress admin:

    “How do I edit the the top links?

    Find the header template in your theme editor area inside WordPress admin (Presentation>>Theme Editor) . Replace the “#” signs with the corresponding urls.”

    Why can’t we do this any longer?

    thanks.

    bloomlikeflowers – we’ve never had that option here at wordpress.COM. Those instructions are for the downloaded version of the theme.
