"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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/
