    I would like to post a set of posts as a resource on my blog, but do not want them to be published to my subscribers as new posts in either RSS feeds or by email to email subscribers. I tried backdating the first one, but it still went through to my email subscribers as a new post (although it didn’t show up as a new post in my Google Reader.) Part of the complication is that some of my subscribers are through Google and others are through WordPress. I don’t want to use Pages because in the theme I am using (Vigilance by Theme Foundry), Pages show up as menu options along the top bar…seems like there should be a way to publish a post and not have it propogate out through WordPress follow or RSS? Did I miss it? Thanks-

    Have you tried temporarily making the blog visibility “private” and then publishing the posts and making the visibility “public” again?

    On virtually every theme, by default, pages are added to the top bar… unless you use a custom menu.

    That would be the best workaround in my opinion.

    Timethief’s solution would work only for email-only subscribers. To my knowledge, those subscribers who used a WP.com username to subscribe or who follow you via RSS will still be notified of the post.

    Thanks to you both. Another idea I thought of was to simply change some old posts that I don’t care about anymore to have this content, since updates don’t go out on my feeds/emails. But I’ve got 8 pages of content I wanted to add, and not sure I have enough posts that fit that bill…may have to do the custom menu thing. Thanks again-
