Is there any way to control what is included on the top navigation bar?
I have a dozen pages that are indexed through a text widget in the sidebar of the "Connections" theme. This makes the navigation bar redundant, and with 12 pages it is sloppy and confusing. For my current work-around, I created a parent called "placeholder", that holds all my real pages, so that only "home" and "placeholder" are included in the top nav bar. Is there a better way to control the nav bar so I don't need the "placeholder" page? I have searched and I still don't really understand categories, so maybe there is help there?
Also, I'm pretty sure it's not possible, but can we change the width of the sidebars?
