Going to do this post in segments…first my slides:
This is the “magic” code that fixes the problem with having a pre-set “Home” button:
What this does is block the pages with IDs 2 and 10 from being listed. You’ll have to find out the page ID from your Edit Pages section in the admin panels. I mouse over the title and look at the URL in the status bar. Please, please bring back the ID number in the columns!
I’ll post links shortly, but the best place to find things on Extending WP on WordPress.org so honestly look there and the most popular themes and plugins are your best bests.
