    Dear the supporting team,
    I am encountering a problem of having no way to remove the “home” extension from the permalink of the front page. For example, instead of being http://www.domainname.com/ (as it usually is on other themes), it is now http://www.domainname.com/home (Enfold theme). I set the frontpage from Enfold>Front page setting and did not do anything with Setting>Reading. Could you please tell me a way to get rid of this inconvenience?
    Best Regards


    Hey mikejohnsimports,

    Please try using the following plugin which can target individual pages:

    Hi Jordan,
    Thank you so much for giving the solution. However, is there any other solution that I dont need to install a plugin on my wordpress site and that I just modify something with enfold theme?
    Best Regards.


    Hi Jordan,
    I think I found a way to change it in another post months ago. Thank you for your support


    hm – can not confirm this.
    All my installations link to the source url.

    Please go to your Menus and on your home or start or whatever on the right side of each menu point there is a little dropdown arrow – press it
    than you can see something like this:

    What is there on your installation on url – here on example “Monster link”
    and by the way on home there should be no url.

    I feel the need of opening this thread again since I am facing the same issue as the thread creator. So, I guess either Enfold or WordPress adds a path to the URL of my homepage so that it says “https://www.example.com/home&#8221;. On top of that, it adds “<link rel=’canonical’ href=’https://www.example.com/home’>&#8221; to that single page, giving me an SEO error since there’s no “/home” page in my sitemap.

    First and foremost, I need to remove the canonical from that page. But I guess I would need to remove the “/home” from the homepage URL also.

    I am using the latest version of WordPress, Enfold and all other plugins. I do use Yoast as a SEO plugin but there are no settings added by me or the plugin that would give this effect.


    Hi fecanimedia,

    You can change the canonical URL for the page in question, in the Advanced Options in Yoast: https://imgur.com/a/B8ksiPB

    Best regards,


    Please elaborate how that would help me. I want https://www.example.com to be the preferred URL, not https://www.example.com/home. I get that adding the canonical URL on /home could help me, but I don’t understand why I _need_ to do this. I guess it has to do with how Enfold works? Furthermore, this will not help me in this case since the theme has added “<link rel=’canonical’ href=’https://www.example.com/home’>&#8221; to my https://www.example.com page.


    Hi fecanimedia,

    It’s how WordPress works. Every page needs to have a slug, like home in your example. But if that page is set as the home page, the URL will never show the actual slug. The slug, or permalink, still remains the same though. I’m not an SEO expert, and I don’t know why this is an “error”. You might be better off asking the same question on general WordPress help forum.

    Best regards,


    Hi again fecanimedia,

    I might have spoken too soon, since I tried to reproduce what you describing on a local and test installation, but I can’t see it happening on either installation. I’m guessing that it can be a local setting on your site. Please check the URL in private.

    Best regards,


    I have this exact same issue, I have a domain with mydomain.com/home in the URL and it doesnt exist in the sitemap. I’m not sure if this is to do with a custom permalink structure.

    I have /insights/%postname%/ set for custom urls for our news pages.

    setting the canonical in yoast will only give me /home in the URL


    My apologies now I have set my canonical URL to mydomain.com it has removed the /home. In the canonical URL previewer for some reason it was showing mydomain.com/https://mydomain.com but it appears to have dissapeared


    Hi pipeandpiper,

    If you need any further help with your problem, then please open a new thread and include WordPress admin login details in private, so that we can have a closer look at your site.
