Hi mich6,

If you already have pages in your menu, and you would like to take them OUT of the menu, you can still do this at any time. Click on the Edit Menu tab, and drag-and-drop the pages you don't want in the menu into the panel on the right hand side.



If you're creating new pages, and don't want them to appear in the menu -- just make sure to uncheck the "include in menu" box (when the New Page dialog box pops up) so that these pages won't be automatically added into your main navigation menu.

You're probably going to want to make links to those pages, so that website visitors will still be able to get to them, right?

You can create the links using the text editor widget.
- drag a text widget onto your page and click to edit it.
- Type the text which you want to link to the sub-page.
- Highlight the text, and from the text editor tool bar, click the link button (10th from the left next to the image button).
- Click on the "..." button next to "page". It should give you a list of all the pages you have just created.
- Choose the relevant page and click "OK" and you will have a link to this page.

Hi Glynis,
You can SEO your pages the same whether they are on the main navigation or not. What you do need to do is make sure there are links that take someone to the page that is not on the menu. The search engines follow links through a site so if there are pages that are not accessible via a link then the search engines won't be able to get to them for indexing. Hope that helps!
