that is done by creating folders then deafult pages for those folders. For example, if you want a contact us page on your website then you would create a folder called 'contact-us' then in that folder you would create an 'index.html' so when you go to http://www.yoursite.com/contact-us/ it automatically defaults to the index.html and displays the content but does not display the .html page in the nav bar - all you would see is http://www.yoursite.com/contact-us/
