Months ago, I accidentally deleted the Home tab on my online portfolio blog. A missing Home tab has not really been a problem for the people who visit my online portfolio blog, but it has bothered me for some time. I finally decided to find out how to restore it. I came across a helpful article called “The Home tab” by a WordPress blogger named Panos.
Panos provides several ways to create a Home tab. I decided to use the approach that involves creating and saving a custom header menu by using the Menus option under the Appearance tab in the WordPress dashboard. It worked for me, and I hope it will work for you too.
Before I go, one thing I would like to note about this article is that it divides WordPress themes into three categories: themes with header tabs and built-in Home tab; themes with header tabs but no built-in Home tab; and themes with no header tabs at all. This article was published in 2009, so it does not include new WordPress themes created after that date.
Correction to Note: Panos informed me that current WordPress themes are included. Please see the comment below.
