Hi mp

You will be pleased to know that there is no limit to the number of pages you can add to your site.

However, if you plan to have many pages it is best to select a style where the menu (navigation bar) is along the side. If you have many pages and the menu runs along the top of your page, the page links will start to run into the main body of the page. This looks unattractive and is confusing to your visitors.

Some examples of styles with vertical navigation are:
Capsicum, Goldco, Sunflower, Missunderstood.

I hope you can find a style that works for you and that you have fun creating your site!

Greetings
Monique

Hello Lakeshia

No.. you will not have an issue with your navigation links running into the body of your site if you hide the pages and made vertical links. You will need to make this vertical menu. One easy way is using text links.

Here's how to add links to your page:

1. Drag and drop a text widget onto your page.
2. In the text widget type the words that you want people to click on (this is your link text).
3. Highlight the link text and then click on the link button (it's the 10th button from the left in the text editing tool bar, and looks like the link in a chain).
4. A link editor dialog box will open up and you will be given 4 options. You can link to an email address, an external URL, a page on your own site or a file in your file manager.
5. Click on, and edit, the option appropriate for you.

You will then have a link on your page. To check that your link is working preview your page and then click on the link.

This is a brief explanation of how to add links, we have written a tutorial that shows the process in more detail. Here is the link: Creating Links.
For a step by step video on how to Add text links please see: Adding text links.

Another option is to simply select a style with vertical navigation (with the menu down the side).

The final alternative is to divide your site into categories and create subpages. Here is a link to a tutorial that will explain how to do this: Creating Subpages.

Please note that the navigation menu is a feature of the style you select. If it is not working for you, you need to consider changing styles. Here is a link to more information on the attributes of the different styles: Yola Style Guide
