Hiding the first global navigation heading in SharePoint 2013

Slightly different CSS has to be added to hide the first global navigation heading in SharePoint 2013.

/*

hide the top nav home link

N.B. this will hide all managed metadata navigation will probably require javascript as well

*/

.ms-core-listMenu-horizontalBox > .ms-core-listMenu-root > li > a {

                display:none;

}

 

This will prevent the site collection name appearing as the first global heading link.

Note: This will not work if you are using Term-driven Navigation.
