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?

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.

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.

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.

I will also give details on how to use XSLT to stylize and format the data being pulled. I will be using the following scenario as an example. Say that you had a site collection with a top level publishing site. This publishing site would display a the most recent blog posts from all blog sites within its own site collection. To solve this problem we will use a Content Query Web Part and a customized ItemStyle.xsl using XSLT.Please note that the “SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure” needs to be enabled at the site collection to display the content query web part.Step 1: Add a Content Query Web Part to PageNavigate to the site that you want the blog posts to show up and click on edit page.
