I have been asked for the URL address of a page, where would I get this? It is a page I want to create that is not visible to everyone as it is a 'thank you for your purchase page'. So i have hidden it in the navigation panel.

Hello pampahampa

The URLs to any pages on your site would be something like: www.yoursite.com/page.php

Where:

> yoursite.com is your website address.
> page.php is the name of your page (remember to include .php at the end).

If you want to create a link to one of these pages, you do have the option to link to one of your pages in the link editor. You can find more information on creating links here.

Please let me know if you have any further trouble with this.

Thank you for this, but what if you want to keep it hidden so it stays in your site navigation folder as hiden. Would this be it: http://sitebuilder.yola.com/ide/index...? As surely it must be out of the site builder.
Sorry for seeming a little dim.

Hello pampahampa

The link that you're using will not work. You will need to first publish your site. Then, you can use the method above to link to your hidden page.

Please let me know if you have any further trouble with this.

Hi pamaphampa

These are the steps to removing a page from your navigation:

1. Click on the "Edit Navigation" button on the top toolbar.
2. A dialog box will open and you will see the list of your pages in the left-hand pane under "Pages in the Navigation".
3. Click on the page you would like to remove and drag-and-drop it to "Pages out of the Navigation".

The page will no longer be in your navigation but you can still have access to it by giving a link to it.
