WordPress : Starkers : Help removing “Home” link in Nav?

  • # February 5, 2013 at 11:35 am

    I am using starkers at the base for a custom theme. I noticed that a handful of folks here use the theme for a base or have discussed facets of it at one time or another, so I thought I might reach out.

    I want to remove the “Home” item from the navigation. I have found all sorts of threads and results on google that offer instructions on how to do this. However, when I look through the Starkers template for the swatches of code they refer to, I do not see anything similar. I have been sort of hacking my way through this build, slowly getting wordpress and Starkers to do what I want, and in the process I think I have utilized some code on the nav menu so that it does not use the usual wp_list_pages function. Consequently, any of the tips I see on forums for other users with the same problem aren’t of much help. They also often refer to setting up a custom menu via the dashboard through Appearance > Menus, but again, the Menus option is not listed in my dashboard.

    I am using the latest version of Starkers, and WordPress 3.5.0.

    This is the site:

    This is the code that surrounds the menu:

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    @Modem, just go to “Appearances > Menus” and create a new menu, without the home link

    @ChrisP unfortunately, “Menus” does not appear as an option under “Appearance” in my dashboard.

    @Modem, if I were you, I’d [register menus](http://codex.wordpress.org/Navigation_Menus “”) in your theme..not only will that solve your problem, but it’s handy to have the custom menus

    Try something like this: http://codepen.io/ggilmore/pen/sLhkx

    The register menus should be commented out in your function.php file if your using the newest starkers. Uncomment it and create your custom navigation.
