Hide the “Home” link in the Squirrel theme for WordPress

This is one of those “I’m going to post this as a note to myself” posts…

I recently found the Squirrel theme for WordPress, which is a good for simple corporate-looking sites. One thing I wanted to do was to remove the “Home” link. Here’s how.

In the theme editor section, edit the file squirrel-functions.php. Find the method squirrel_nav_menu_items. In it, comment out all lines except the last line. The function should now look like this:

function squirrel_nav_menu_items($items) {
	if (is_home()) {
		$homelink = '<li class="current_page_item">' . '<a href="' . home_url('/') . '">' . __('Home', 'squirrel') . '</a></li>';
	} else {
		$homelink = '<li>' . '<a href="' . home_url('/') . '">' . __('Home', 'squirrel') . '</a></li>';
	$items = $homelink . $items;
	return $items;

That’s it; home link gone. Nice free theme, and nice easy hack.
