    Hi – I am trying to remove a page from the main navigation header on my site (I need the page to be virtually nonexistent, except from its direct URL). I read through the custom menu tutorial, but I don’t want the menu to be visible on the navigation bar either. Is there a way to remove all links to a single page without editing code? Thanks!

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

    A custom menu allows you to display Categories with drop-downs to sub-categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation where normally only Pages tabs are displayed. If you wish you can also include Pages with drop-downs to sub-pages and/or Tags pages and/or Custom Links in your custom menu as well. You are in charge of what appears in a custom menu. You choose the order in which to display any and/or all the foregoing in your custom menu. You choose which items to display and you choose which items to hide by simply not including them in your custom menu. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus

    Here’s a link to a custom menu walkthrough > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/08/11/wordpress-com-custom-menu-walk-through/

    Go here > Appearance > Menus and on the top right hand side locate and disable this
    _ Automatically add new top-level pages
    then click “save menu”

    Sorry, I’m still not able to figure this out. So I have three pages on my blog – A, B, C – I want A & B to be listed along the header of the site (which they are), but I don’t want C to be visible from there. I created a menu and put page C in it, and when I leave the Theme Locations navigation box empty, page C still shows up on the header (C has no parent, btw). I don’t want that menu to be visible, but I don’t want page C visible either. What step am I missing?

    I read through the wpbtips link you posted, but something isn’t clicking for me. thanks for your help!

    When you select the blank option from the Theme Locations pulldown, the theme displays its regular header menu, i.e. all your published parent pages. If you want only pages A and B on it, you create a custom menu, add only Home, A and B to it, save the menu, select that menu from the Theme Locations pulldown, save.

    Got it, thank you! I was screwing something up when I tried that before.
