I have a WordPress site, with a navigation menu, and WordPress displays the header on each web page just as it should: Home, About, Services, and so on.

On the Home page I would like to omit the Home header. Meaning, I want to omit


on the home page.

Yet I still want menu item "Home" to appear in the navigation menu at the top of the page.

Can I insert an IF-THEN statement in header.php? (This is how I would do this task in ColdFusion, for example -- If "Home" page, Then omit "Home" header.)

Or is there a simpler way?

Thank you for your help.
