Becoming Adept!

Hey there,
I have my site set to show the "tab" nav menu in a box on the left side rather than at the top of the page. Every time I create a new page the New Page Wizard asks for a display order and inserts the page into this nav menu. My question is how do I prevent this from happening? I just want a page that I can create a link to somewhere else on the site and that doen't show up in that menu. Thanks in advance!

I've not been able to figure out how to do this an easy way.  One suggestion would be to hide the navigation bar altogether and then make a free form/html box where you want it to show up and insert the links there to the pages you want to link to in that menu.  Its a bit of a round about way, but I'm not sure if there's a way to do it otherwise.

The nav menu display format you have chosen lists all pages of the main/root site.  You would have to create your own custom graphic menu (complete with linking for each menu item graphic).  This would probably be best done under the Styles & Colors -> Banner Area section (i.e. paste the code necessary to render the menu).  You will also want to change the nav menu display format back to Horizontal Tab Bar & then use a transparent 1x1 pixel graphic to "hide" the horizontal tab bar buttons.

You can also use this code to hide the default tab bar by putting it in the Custom CSS section:

.TabBar {
display: none;
}


I found this on these forums and it was a huge help.

Aw.. sweet.. I didn't even think to make the custom tab bar for those extra pages.. we just made a flat html page and hosted it on another server- with - close to formatting.. this may be worth looking into, or putting in the effort!

Another way of doing this is to use graphics for the tab bar, you canthen 'hide' the pages you don't want to appear using a 1x1 transparentimage.

Take a look at my site, you'll see I've used to this then add buttons for the Links and Mailbox inside the banner area.

Thanks, Szleynix that's a great idea.  I'm afraid it's way past my current knowledge though.  I'll try to figure out how to do it that way.   Your site looks great

Szleynix how were you able to get those buttons to be up there at the top.  I would love to do that.
