Hiding pages on the Pages Widget

  1. I have a widget that isn’t doing what I’m telling it to. On the right-hand column, I have the books in my online library. All the site’s pages are shown. I told the widget which ones to hide. It didn’t hide them. Can you help?

    The blog I need help with is opencoursejournal.wordpress.com.

  2. Did you exclude by page ID number as described here?

    Exclude: If you would like to exclude any pages from being displayed, you can enter the Page IDs (separated by commas). To find the Page ID, go to Pages → All Pages and click the title of the page. The address bar of your browser will display a URL with a numeric ID at the end. This is the page ID. http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/pages-widget/

  3. "Did you exclude by page ID number as described here?"

    No. Because there is a DreamWeaver-type functionality that is supposed to save time by allowing an indirect inclusion of the page ID numbers. If you click on "Visibility," which is just to the left at bottom of widget, the DW set-up appears. (It also appears not to be working).

    :)

  5. There is also a feature that allows "hiding" pages by Tags (whatever they are. I've seen them on posts, but not on pages.). I've also noticed that one can (presumably) do it by date, which I suppose means that if I set the date on my want-to-hide pages to a certain day, I could exclude them that way.

    As you know, I decided not to use the "hide" feature, nevertheless WordPress may want to check out the feature, because I couldn't get it to work--and I'm pretty certain I did it correctly.

  6. OKay. Thanks.

  7. Instead of using the Pages widget, try building a custom menu and using a Custom Menu widget. It's much easier to work with as far as organization goes.

  8. DUH ... why didn't I think of that? Not enough coffee, or what?
