Hide #1 tab in Top Navigation (Home)

OOTB SharePoint will not allow you to remove the 1st tab on the main navigation through the UI. To do this you can simply use the following CSS below and add it to your custom CSS or use the CEWP page style method to just make the change just for that page.

If you look at the code, you will notice that each top navigation item has an ID.

  • zz1_TopNavigationMenun0 (Home Tab)
  • zz1_TopNavigationMenun1 (Tab #2)
  • zz1_TopNavigationMenun2 (Tab #3)
  • zz1_TopNavigationMenun... (Tab Etc)

Since the home tab is always #1 it is always given the ID of "0"

CSS Code:

#zz1_TopNavigationMenun0 {
display: none !important;

I have tried using this on a publishing site (SharePoint 2010) – but nothing happens. I have not been able to locate “zz1_TopNavigationMenun0”. Other ideas on how to hide the home tab when?

I found these ways to hide the Home Tab, w/jQuery

1. Goto Site Settings > Look and Feel > Title and Discription
In the Title Section just give "Space"

2. with jQuery $(document).ready(function() {

Step 1

Add a custom class to "TopNavigationMenuV4" on your master page

It can be anything, just add it to the CSSClass tag. Mine looks like this, with top-navigation-bar being my custom class:

CssClass="s4-tn top-navigation-bar"/>

Step 2

Add custom CSS to remove the first 'a' tag after the first 'li' tag

" ul.root > li > a {
display: none !important;

The key for the removal was to specifically target the first li and first a. If you don't do this, you will have no nav bar. You need to put !important on it too because by default it will be overridden.

How To: Hide Left Side Navigation on Home Page

I was recently asked: "How can I hide the side nav bar on the main homepage layout ?? I want to be able to use the side NAV with in the team site etc etc, but I don't want it on the front page.. " There are a couple of ways to do this in SharePoint 2010. If you are using a non-publishing site you can add a Content Editor Web Part to the page and add the following to the HTML Source.
body #s4-leftpanel
display: none;
margin-left: 0px;
Basically the CSS above hides the left navigation Div, and then sets the content area to not have a left margin. Once you are done, simply modify the web part and hide it on the page. If you are using a publishing site for your homepage simply add the same styles specified above to a custom page layout. That way if you have a need for other pages that do not need the left side navigation you can re-use the page layout.

SharePoint 2010 Base CSS Classes

This will be the first of many SharePoint 2010 posts. I will be focusing on a few of the main CSS classes used for SharePoint 2010 Public Beta. As the product becomes more final there might be some changes to the class names but I will be sure to create a new post if that happens. This will be quite a lengthy but it should be helpful. The default CSS given below are just highlights of the full CSS attributes for that class.I will be using a basic team site as my base for the screenshots.

First off I would like to apologize for the lack of posts. I have been really busy with my new role as the UX Design lead within Slalom Consulting Boston. I will share more about that in another post. In a previous post Create Really Small Calendar I showcased how to do this for SharePoint 2007. However the 2010 and 2013 calendar views have changed and therefore we cannot use the same method or CSS as 2007.SharePoint 2010 Small Calendar:
SharePoint 2013 Small Calendar:
See video below for a video walk through on how to create a small calendar for SharePoint 2010 and & SharePoint 2013 with just CSS.Per the video above here is the code that I referenced:2010 CSS link reference in Master Page:
