I just did a clean install of Preference Child on to a brand new WordPress site. I added three pages (Home, Blog, Contact) and when I go to “menus” to set my navigation architecture I am presented with 2 “Home” choices (see image attached).
This site is for a client otherwise I wouldn’t bother you with this, but I don’t want her getting confused.
Go into your pages and confirm which home page you want to keep and delete the other (providing that there are two). Also, make sure that you have a menu created, then drag the home page onto the menu that you want.
The theme creates a “Home” page Menu item when the theme is installed. So, anyone with a Home page already created ends up with 2 homepages.
The problem for my clients is/will be . . . that the theme doesn’t actually a Page. So if you were to go into my new install, you’d see “Home” in the nav but when you went to edit it . . . there is no Homepage in the Pages section.
That will normally be because you still need to create a custom menu. The one that is there is a default fallback menu that loads pages, but also puts in a “Home” link to start. First step is to create a custom menu, then when you make your pages, add those and anything else to the new menu.
