Remove a Page from the Menu While Keeping it in the Hierarchy

Authors list

Sometimes a page might fit naturally into your site's navigation hierarchy, but you don't want it to appear on the menu. You can configure the menu to show related pages when this unlisted page is open, even if you don't want the page to appear on the menu. For example, you can keep your "Frankfurt Program" page out of your site navigation, but still display the expanded menu items under "Study Abroad", including "European Programs", on the "Frankfurt Program" page.

  • Under "Site Building," click "Menus."
  • From the list of your site's menus, select "Site Navigation."
  • Find your newly added menu item and uncheck its "Enabled" checkbox. 
  • Click "Save Configuration."

Now, when users reach your page, its menu parents will expand in the navigation, but your page will not display the unchecked menu item within the navigation.

For help reaching the menu configuration page, see Editing the Site Navigation.
