As websites become larger and more complex, the homepage often becomes less important. The vast majority of your visitors may never see your homepage.
As a result, site owners may need to hide the "Home" link in their site's navigation.
In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how to hide the "Home" link on your Joomla sites.
Step #1. Find your main menu link
To find out which menu item is your homepage, search for the menu icon with the yellow star icon. Often this will be in "Main Menu".
Step #2. Create a hidden menu
We're going to create a menu where we can store our Home link without anyone seeing it.
- Go to "Menus".
- Click "Manage".
- Click "Add new menu".
- Add a Title such as "Hidden menu" or "Help Menu"
- Set the "Menu Type" and "Description".
- Make sure "Client" is set to "Site".
- Click "Save and Close".
Step #3. Move the home menu item
Now we're going to move the Home link to our new menu.
- Go to Menus > Main menu.
- Edit the Home menu item.
- Set Menu location to the menu you created in the previous step.
- Click "Save and close".
Step #4. Check the end result
Refresh your public site to confirm the home page exists, but the link is not displayed:
