How to rename "Home" title in the home page instead setting NOT to display "home"?

Hi All,

I just removed the "home" title from homepage following juggledad's comments in another thread. But there is a big "spacing" created between body and header, probably space left for the title? I found Flynn comments on some threads posted last year, and involved modifying index.php. Not sure whether it works for 3.5.3, because I didn't find the mentioned section in my index.php?

But my main issue is how to rename "home" title to something like "Welcome Home", so that I can still apply same formatting (color, background) to it as for all other the page/post titles.

Would appreciate your hint. Thanks!
Arun

Have you gone to ato->Menu 1 (Page Menu) and changed the name there?

In wordpress the HOME page is considered to be the page that the blog posts are shown on. However you can create a page called HOME to muddy the waters. Atahualpa let's you rename the HOME page (used for the posts) to something else ( the option pointed to above) and if you created a page called HOME you can always change the title of it.

I hope this helps a little, it can be confusing.

Oh...then there is the new menu option in WordPress that has more features...

Thank you juggledad.

Actually, I have used wp to create "home" page which doesn't seem to have option to change the name of title.

..new menu option in WordPress...

I am using wp 3.0.1, shed me some light if I am missing something here.

I want to keep "HOME" in the menu bar, but just change the page title "HOME" to something else ("WELCOME")!

Hope I made it clearer now.

Ok, let me see if I can be clearer.

The WordPress setting 'dashboard->settings->reading->Front page displays' determines what the landing page (the page you see when you enter www.mydonmain.com) shows up.

If you have it set to 'Your latest posts' then WordPress generates a page of your posts. This 'page' is not a page you have defined, it is automatic. Atahualpa (when you are NOT using the new WordPress menus) will create a menubar and depending on what you put in the option 'ato->MENU 1 (Page Menu)->Home link in Page Menu Bar' Atahualpa will display that title in the menubar as a link to your latest posts...your ;landing page'

Now if you changed 'dashboard->settings->reading->Front page displays' to 'A Static Page' and you select a page you have created as the front page, that page name will show up in the menubar. If you have something entered in the option 'ato->MENU 1 (Page Menu)->Home link in Page Menu Bar' Atahualpa will display that title in addition to the actual page title. You can get rid of this title Atahualpa generates for you by just clearing out the option

I hope this makes a 'somewhat confusing concept' a little clearer.

Thank you Paul.

Looks like I am not yet clear enough here!

Refering to your reply, I have chosen the second option (static page, front page to "home" page created by myself, and kept empty in ato->menu 1-> 'Home link in Page Menu Bar' field).

Now the website looks like http://isipservices.com/clients/nav/ with 'home' as page title (in red background).

What I want to do is to change 'home' to 'welcome to nav website'.

-Arun
PS: Now I have set to display 'page title' in the home page as well.

If you are using the WP Menu system see this screenshot.
If you are using the Atahualpa native menu system see this screenshot.
