Home Shows Twice In Header


Hi Matty,

I’ve been blogging for 5+ years, and just found your theme, which I really like.

If you look here you will see what I mean in the Theme header. Home shows up twice. I would like to eliminate the Home that shows in blue, and gain that extra space for my blog.

Before I found your Forum I was looking at editing my CSS style sheet, header.php, etc. LOL!

Thank you very much in advance for your assistance.


Hi jjmacey,

Glad you liked the theme.

This theme comes with two menus and the “top menu” and “main menu”, here you want to turn off the main menu. You can do so by following the below steps.

Go to Appearances >> Menus >> Manage Locations >> Main menu select empty menu from the dropdown and then save

Hi Matty,

Thank you for the reply. If, it were only that simple. LOL! When I do as you suggest my screen is different http://www.jjmacey.net/images//athemes.png.
I have tried with Firefox, and Google Chrome.

Any reason things should be different? Otherwise, I do like the Theme, and layout. Getting rid of that second Home would move (I think) the content up.

Thanks in advance for your response.


Ok I see.

You need to create a menu to see the manage location tab.

You can simply create an empty menu and then in manage location assign that empty menu to main menu and it will be done. After this you will just have the top menu




I apologize in advance, but I am confused here. Can you walk me through this?



Hi jjmacey,

With reference to your screenshot it seems you dont have any menu created.

So follow the below steps

First goto Appearances >> menus >> create menu for eg: menu name “primary” and then click create menu

After this is done you would be seeing another tab which reads “Manage locations”, click that and from the Main menu drop down choose primary, which would be an empty menu and click save changes.

Hope this helps!




Done! Thanks! If you would want to advice me on any additions / changes that I should want to make to my Blog let me know.

I’d gladly pay you! (within reason)

Thanks for your help, and Template
