I have a top navigation on my home page which holds links to subsites.
Only on the top navigation on the home page, it shows a link called "Edit links" at the end of the navigation. Upon clicking it, one can edit the links in the navigation.

The thing is that I don't want this to be there, this "Edit links" option.

All subsites inherit this top navigation, yet the subsites do not show the "Edit links" link. What do I need to do in order to get rid of the "Edit links" option for the home page?
Should I edit the master page of the home page? Or is there another way to do this?

There might be an easier way, but I was able to hide it by adding the following lines to the masterpage:

<style type="text/css">
#DeltaTopNavigation .ms-core-listMenu-root .ms-listMenu-editLink {display: none;}

Hope that helps.
