[1.5 RC] Default homepage menu item

In a default clean installation, the homepage is included in main navigation, but the checkbox "show on a menu" is unchecked.

Even if you check the case again, it will not be remembered (but the menu item is still there)

It seems that it's the content item checkbox which is broken : it's never checked, event if you create a new page from scratch.

Let's remove the checkbox then ... actually that's what was decided. This part is just here for compatibility with previous versions. You should handle navigation using the Navigation page.

It makes sense.

That is just disturbing because the checkbox seems to be member of "content" of the page (the "saved" datas), and because this feature was here with classical navigation system.

Perhaps if the checkbox was placed at the bottom, or with a different label (now it seems it was already updated to reflect this)...

Thanks for the explanation.

Also because the only way to change the label of the menu item is to click "edit" then check again "show on a menu" to display the name of the menu item.
