I have created several pages for my website and those page appear in my menu but I am having trouble creating a home page. If I create a page called 'home' it will have this at the end of the URL which I do not want. You can take a look at the site http://www.gardeningaidsfortheelderly.com How do I make the above URL, the URL of my home page?

Wow, Iain can i just say how very excited i am to see your site!!! This is incredible. i used to be an Occupational therapist, and gardening is something that was focussed on a lot. I think it is so so important for well-being both as a hobby for the mind emotionally mentallly and spiritually, but also for the body physically. I think its so awesome that you are showing people what to use adn how how to garden. well done.

In terms of answering your question: you should be able to sort this out by going to appearance > menus. In your main menu (ie main navigation menu, or whatever yours is called. you can make a customised menu page by looking on the left hand side it says custom links.
add in your url (as you pasted above) and write your title as home, or whatever you like. And then add it to your menu. then drag it to the top of the menu, so that it is the first one on the list.

Hope this helps. Its so awesome to see people of all ages have a go at creating and maintaining a website. i think its awesome :)
