Adding a “Home” link to the Pages Menu in WordPress 2.9.2.

Example site:

One simple change to the header.php file makes the Home page link show up in the Pages Menu. Add the number “1” between the = symbol and the & symbol. See red-colored 1 in the second example below:

<?php wp_page_menu(‘show_home=&sort_column=menu_order, post_title&link_before=<span>&link_after=</span>’); ?>

Change to:
<?php wp_page_menu(‘show_home=1&sort_column=menu_order, post_title&link_before=<span>&link_after=</span>’); ?>

Lots of help from the WordPress codex:
