I want to remove "Home" menu on the tab!

    I am a beginner, and I am now in a big trouble with removing “Home” menu from the main page.
    The “Home” menu is not made by me, and it can’t be removed.
    I tried “Settings->Reading”, I set the front page as other page, but I still see “Home”.
    Is it possible to remove the tab and where I can I remove it or change the names??
    If you know about this, please answer me.

    I have another question about widget.
    Widgets are appeared only in 1 page, the page that I set as “posting page”.
    How can I change the setting to show the widgets in every page, anytime in my page?

    Awaiting for the answer. Please help me.

    That tab is hard-coded into the default menu of the theme: you cannot edit or remove it (except in the few cases noted), unless you create and load a custom menu.

    Hello, thank you for your answer.
    I actually tried the way following the instruction in the 3 links, but nothing works with the “Home” tab. The custom menu is changing the other menu, not the “Home” tab.

    You said it’s “hard-coded”. Do you mean it’s because I chose the theme in which the “Hoe” tab is hard-coded and maybe I could choose other theme and remove home tab?

    So if the “Home” tab is hard-coded, can I never change it or can I change it using the other custom menu?

    Please answer me once again if you know about this.
    Thank you in advance.


    Step by step:
    Go to Appearance>Menus.
    Click the cross to create a menu, give it a name (say, “My top menu”).
    In the Pages module, tick the three pages you have created (If you aren’t seeing all three, click View All first); don’t tick “Home”; click Add to Menu.
    Click Save Menu.
    Select your menu from the pulldown in the Theme Locations module, click Save.



    I’m pretty limited in my blogging skills. I’ve spent hours trying to create a blog for my school’s book group and I’m hoping that someone can help me out with the following (hopefully quite straightforward) questions:

    1) How can I add text to the ‘home’ menu? My one says ‘Not Found’ and there’s a search bar. Basically, I just want the ‘home’ menu to contain a brief introduction to the blog and I’ve no idea how to do this.

    2) How can I amend the content/title of new menus that I have created?

    PLEASE HELP! I have little enough hair as it is and this’s driving me mad! (I can email printscreen pictures of what it looks like and what I’m talking about.)

    Many thanks.


    0) In WP parlance, your menu is the whole dark green strip above the content area. Each tab on this strip is a menu item.

    2) These menu items are links to the pages you have published. So, to change their title or their content, you go to Pages > All pages, hover under the title of the one you want to “amend” and click Edit.

    1) By now you have created an intro post, so the “not Found” message no longer shows up. But if you want that intro permanently on your front page, then you must publish it as a page, not a post, then go to Settings > Reading and select that page as your front.



    Thanks, panaghiotisadam, for getting back to me so quickly – I really appreciate it.
    I’ll try out what you’ve said and I’m sure it’ll work out just fine. If you don’t mind, though, I might have to get back to you again – as I said, I’m pretty limited when it comes to this kind of thing.
    Best wishes.



    I am currently using twenty eleven Theme, and I made some adjustment on the below code to remove the “Home” button under Tab. Hopefully this also works for you..

    1) Go into functions.php (under Appearance > Editor)

    2) Find this function “twentyeleven_page_menu_args”, and change the below argument $args[‘show_home’] from true to false

    function twentyeleven_page_menu_args( $args ) {
    $args[‘show_home’] = false;
    return $args;

    Thank you for your easy step by step instructions on how to remove the Home tab. I always thought it was redundant when clicking the blog title will always get you back home. I dislike clutter and appreciate learning new ways to remove the unnecessary.
