I am exploring different set up possibilites through my wordpress.com site (not currently public) in order to help another wordpress.com user set up their site. I know that I could create a diary for them by adding a parent page (Diary) then a child page for each day of the week (they run a complimentary health centre). But, could I hide these from the navigation bar and, rather than having them drop down, simply have the list of days showing in a fresh menu in the side column via a menu widget? If so how would I hide the parent page from the navigation bar but still access the day pages for the menu?
The blog I need help with is dekleverton.wordpress.com.
