Dead easy one (I hope!) - but I cant seem to find a way of doing it.

Is there an easy way, when using FP's automatically generated table of contents, to exclude a page, or a whole directory, from it? Those pages will still need to be accessable, but I dont want that TOC to pick them up.

Thanks!

Ross

The only way to do this is to place those pages in a folder that starts with an underscore, for example "_secretpages". Then the TOC page won't find them, but it's not a very workable option. There are, however, sites out there that have similar components that you can use with FP. For instance:
http://www.enborne.com/index.html

At any rate, any pages in a folder that starts with an underscore will be hidden, but assuming you have "Show files in hidden folders" checked, you can use those pages as you would any others,

Ah. Sorry! Ya, I shoulda closed the question really. You're quite right - there is no way to do this unfortunately using just what I was looking for (ie, in frontpage). What a bummer. I don't want to use a 3rd party product, although thanks for the advice.

No problem Ross - actually sometimes the correct answer is no (however unfortunate...) so technically an A grade is appreciated. Would you agree if I ask for a modification?

Lol. I have no objection at all - I graded it as good rather than excellent because your answer was 'useful', rather than 'brilliant' ;)

But ya - of course. Feel free. :D

I hear you - it's just the way things work at EE - a lot of times lower grades are given out when the answer was a "no, you can't do that" even though the answer is correct... sort of like someone asking how to divide by zero, and getting a B for saying you can't :-)

Unfortuantely in this case there is no "brilliant" answer - simply that without using the underscore character, it can't be done in FrontPage.

Thanks
