can I change (and how…) the word ”home” in the nav tabs? (in according to SEO)

  • alcina22


    Hi, in according to SEO (cfr. this link for ex.: )
    I would change the word Home with something more descriptive my own site.

    I see the code related to the nav tab Home, if I’m right is:
    a href=”?php echo site_url() ?” title=”?php _e( ‘Home’, ‘buddypress’ ) ?”?php bp_site_name() ?/a>

    I don’t know php, so my question is:
    can I safely change ‘Home’ in the string?
    with no problems? or there is another way, maybe?

    Thank you in advance for your help! :)

    P.S. I’m sorry, I cut the brackets because the code don’t appear… I tried also with the code tag but nothing…

  • ‘Home’ or ‘Index’ are two very accepted conventions in web sites denoting as they do the domain site root or initial main page, I doubt you will gain much in SEO terms from changing them, often there is too much emphasis placed on suppossed SEO enhancements.

    However if you must di it :) then read through this page for a better understanding oof the approaches you could take:

    But yes you could change the string as seen in the main header.php nav



    thank you hnla for you kind answer! and for the link too, interesting :)
    I think you have right it’s not very important the home-seo-thing! but, I have yet a custom header.php in my theme, so maybe I’ll change the string… now you have reassured me, and try costs nothing ;)

    thank you again, ciao!



    I just want to add my site name in the tab but not have the name shoe up in my header. How do I do that?

    @faberuna … you’ll need to edit your header.php file.
