    I'd like to have the home page have a menu title of "Home" and a different page title "What we can do for you". There are plugs for this sort of thing, but was wondering if there was a more elegant way of doing this in a child theme?

    See where he suggests hacking classes.php and the class Walker.php to add a function code called menutext.

    Sounded good - but I don't want to violate the first rule of child templates - no core hacking. In the comments section there is a link ( where someone took this concept and created a plugin, but when I ran it in thematic & added "home" as recommended - all the menu and page titles changed to "home" :(

  2. The plugin Page Menu Editor seems to work OK with Thematic 0.9.

    A demo I just made:

    Thanks for the suggestion - I did use that and find it works ok. Guess I'll keep with this for now.

  4. You are welcome! Page Menu Editor is one of my favourite plugins.

    I don’t change page titles (too much hassle), but I can’t stand the title attribute being the same as the anchor text. I doesn’t make any sense and it is also annoying. Either use the title attribute properly or don’t use it at all! :-)
