Sharepoint Publishing Portal 2010 - Navigation issue

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.

Any suggestions?
Thanks.

Hi,

On all top-level sites the options are greyed out, exactly because you cannot change them; the only available options for the site are selected (in Global and Current Navigation), but you cannot change them, so no point in leaving them selectable.

Please explain what you would like to see and is not showing in more details, so that we may help better.

I'd like the top level home page link to be available on each of the pages throughout the site.

For instance:
Home
About
Courses
Registration
Contact Us

on each page should be showing. Currently all are showing EXCEPT Home. About, Courses, Registration, etc., are set up as "sites" and some of those have pages under those.
Does that help?

Hi,

You could add in the "Current Navigation" area a new link that would point to the home.
You should add it on the Parent site -> in the "Navigation Editing and Sorting" section. Once you add it here it will also appear on all subsites that inherit the navigation from it.

hope this helps
