    Hello, I have a quick question. I am putting together a blog for a group at my school, and I was asked if the About page could be the home page while the blog be available under another tab. However, when I try to do this, I need to make a new tab for the blog, but that leaves me with an extra tab that is already labled blog. Both the blog tab and the About tab link to the About page. How do I fix this?

    Go to adlink.wordpress.com if you feel you need to check it out yourself in order to understand.

    I don’t mean to double post, however I’m having trouble understanding that section of the faq that I was linked to.

    If you could be more specific about where you got lost, it would help.

    Go to your Options and there you can set any preexisting page as the front page of the blog. Once you’ve done that, you’ve still got your extra page…the blog has both a Blog tab AND another one? If that’s the case, go to the page you want to be the front page, say, About. Go to Edit the About page. On the right of the edit page, you’ll see a stack of blue bars with different titles: Post Date, Categories, etc. There’s one called Page Parent. Click on the X at the corner and it’ll open; then you can set that page you’re on to be the “child” of the Posts page. Then hit Save and check your blog; all should be fixed then.

    Okay, it did work, however, is there a way to be able to make it so that the tab for the home page no longer says Blog, since, well, it isn’t the blog? :)

    Thanks for the help. And sorry for posting in the other thread. :/

    I’m afraid I’m no good with the page parent/child thing, so hopefully someone else can come along and let you know. There must be a way.

    Actually, that’s highly ironic, since I’m a paid mommyblogger now. There’s a blog post inthat.
