When you first install WordPress, your site will display a button or tab in the menu labelled "Home" that links to your home page. Removing this link from a blog running on WordPress 3.0 and above is a simple task requiring no programming. You need to log in to your blog and edit the menu from a screen called "Menus." This drag-and-drop style menu management tool lets you add, edit, move or delete any link from your menu. Delete your "Home" page or rename it as desired.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Go to the "wp-admin" directory of your website to log in to the WordPress management area, also known as the "Dashboard."

  2. 2

    Navigate to "Appearance" from the sidebar in the dashboard. Click the link to "Menus" to load the "Menus" screen.

  3. 3

    Locate the bar labelled "Home" in the list of menu items. If you cannot find "Home" in the list, click on another tab on the top of the screen to look at your other menus, if you have them. Click the down-pointing arrow on the bar to expand the item and display its options. Remove "Home" by clicking the red "Remove" link.

  4. 4

    Click the "Save Menu" button at the top of the "Menus" screen. If you forget to do so, WordPress will pop up an alert message asking if you want to save your changes.

Tips and warnings

  • Expand "Home" in the "Menus" screen and write a new title for the link in the field marked "Navigation Label" to change the link name on your website.
