I am completely new to Sharepoint and am working on a Sharepoint Publishing site, 2010 - the publishing portal specifically. When setting up the site, I've created several "sites" which are all appear on the left hand nav. However, the actual home site link does not appear on any of the nav bars on any of the sites. All of the sites have "display the same navigation items as the parent site; show subsites" under global navigation and "display the same navigation items as the parent site; show subsites, show pages" under current navigation. Each of those sites, "About Us" "Register" etc., are all displaying currectly in navigation on all sites.
The sole exception is the Home Site. My settings under global navigation are a grayed out "display the navigation imtems below the current site" and under current, "display only the navigation items below the current site." It seems obvious to me that I want to "display the same navigation"? but I have no option to change as they are grayed out.
