Making pages invisible on the menu
« on: January 25, 2008, 01:05:17 PM »
Hi there everybody!

I have created a site with a lot of pages. The problem is that this makes the main menu grow to an ugly size. To solve this problem (and to stop users from reaching certain pages directly), I would like to remove some of the pages from the menu.

The pages are still to be seen by the public. So marking them private isn't the way. I've tried the visibility setting none but in that case any user who wants to view that page gets an "access denied". Marking the pages hidden is almost what I need. However, this has an ugly side effect: When a user is on one of those pages, the menu disappears. This is not really so much a problem with the usability, but much more a problem with the looks. The menu being gone is just plain ugly and is very irritating for the user.

Is there some clean way I can go about this?

Regards,
Chris

Hello,

just an idea. Use the multiple menu feature. Only call in the template one menu. Add all pages wich should not appear in this menu to the second menu.
