There is a "Home" link in global navigation of my publishing site which I want to hide. It is not available in "Navigation" in "Site Settings" so I cannot hide it from there.

All the solutions available on internet are about SharePoint 2010/2013 and they are not working for SharePoint 2016. How can I hide that Home link?


Here's that element:

<a class="static selected menu-item ms-core-listMenu-item ms-displayInline ms-core-listMenu-selected ms-navedit-linkNode shortpoint-nav-home-link shortpoint-nav-a-selected" accesskey="1" href="/sites/somesite/en/Pages/default.aspx">
    <span class="additional-background ms-navedit-flyoutArrow">
        <span class="menu-item-text" data-original-word="English">Home</span>
        <span class="ms-hidden">Currently selected</span>
  • Are you not able to hide the link using custom css and element selector (of home link)? – Ganesh Sanap Aug 10 '20 at 6:33
  • That's what I am trying to do but I am unable to find unique element selector using which I can hide the home link. – Frank Martin Aug 10 '20 at 6:50
  • try something like a[title^='Home'][class^='ms-Nav-link'] – Ganesh Sanap Aug 10 '20 at 6:59
  • I have mentioned element in my original post. Please check. – Frank Martin Aug 10 '20 at 7:02
  • Try using a.menu-item.shortpoint-nav-home-link {display: none !important}. let me know if this works – Ganesh Sanap Aug 10 '20 at 7:13

I add below style in a Altertive CSS file and it works well here.

a.menu-item.shortpoint-nav-home-link {
    display: none !important

div#sideNavBox li.static:first-child{
    display: none !important

enter image description here

Below is my page element:

And you may have a try JS code:

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.1.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(function () {
        $("div#sideNavBox span:contains('Home')").closest("li").hide();
