By default every time you create a page they will be displayed in your website menu. WordPress dynamically creates your navigation menu including your published pages.
With the Exclude Pages widget you can hide a page from appearing in the menu, and with the Parent Page and Order field you can select the position for your menu items.
Log into your site and navigate to the appropriate page you are wanting to exclude from your menu.
Hiding a page from Menu
- Open the page you want to hide from your menu.
- At right hand side locate the Exclude Pages Widget
- It should be under Page Attributes section.
- De-tick the Include this page in list of pages
note: By default this box will be ticked every time you create a page.
- Click on Update or Publish button to save your change.
Managing the position of your page in the menu
- Open the page you want to edit in your menu.
- In right hand side of the page locate the Page Attributes box
- In Parent field select the parent page for this specific page. The drop-down menu contains a list of all the Pages already created for your site.

note: to understand Parent and Child pages refer to Menus Overview.
- In the Order field set as required (eg. If you already had 4 existing sub pages under the same parent and this was to display last you would enter the order as 5).
