I am wondering if I can change the URL of the "Home"-button in the dashboard's admin-bar.

enter image description here

Right now it just redirects to /, but I need it to redirect to /velkommen.

Whenever a logged-in user lands on /, they are already redirected to /velkommen, so in a way it's already working as I want (with an extra redirect), but it would be nice to prevent having to run that javascript redirect, also because it creates waiting time for the user.

I tried the following things, to now luck:

Change homepage url

How to change the Admin-bar's link target?

Try this. Even if you want to change "View Site" link then remove "site-name" and add "view-site" in get_node. Thanks.

 add_action( 'admin_bar_menu', 'customize_my_wp_admin_bar', 80 );
 function customize_my_wp_admin_bar( $wp_admin_bar ) {
        $site_node = $wp_admin_bar->get_node('site-name');

        //Change link
        $site_node->href = home_url().'/velkommen';

        //Update Node.

  • Awesome, it worked! Shaved a few ms off of our customer's flow :)
