I'm trying to remove the Home menu item from the navigation bar in our customer community. I've already tried the CSS hack posted on here previously but couldn't get it to work. Does anyone have any suggestions? We'd like the landing page to be the account record detail page.

Basically, you can create your custom theme for your home page, and have a custom navigation menu that does not display, it is a lot more work, but in the long run, more compliant code wise, and adheres to best practices.
You will most likely want to setup your home page with data from an Account record detail page OR find some way of redirecting users to the account record detail page using navigaion events when thepage loads.
