Why is this like this?

Why is there a sploder forums button on the home page just above the announcements board when clicking it just takes you to the home page?

That text will be different each page you visit to show you whereabouts you are. For example, on this thread it's "Sploder Forums » General Category » General » Why is this like this?" to show you're on the topic "Why is this like this?" in the General category on the Sploder forums. On the index page it says Sploder Forums because you're on the main page and not looking at a topic so there is no further information to be given.

Hope that makes sense. :P

Whichever page you view will have that "button". On this topic, it shows as this: http://prntscr.com/megvaj. It's like a map telling you where you are currently. In this instance, it's saying that the topic you're viewing is "Why is this like this?", located in the General board (http://prntscr.com/megvuy) of the General Category (http://prntscr.com/megw0m).

It is always laid out as Sploder Forums » Category » Board » Topic. On the index (home) page, it just shows as "Sploder Forums" because you have not yet viewed a board/topic.

I know, I don't understand why it's still visible on the home page

I guess it's just so that it's on every page, so everything looks consistent. Just something SMF decided to do I guess.
