Hi all. I have a freestanding page on my WP site that needs to be editable, yet I don't want it to appear as a link in the nav. Do I make it a post instead of a page?I have a blog within my site and I don't want this page/post to appear there. It's just a freestanding one-of-a-kind page.

-. take a note of your page's ID

After you’ve logged into your WordPress dashboard, Go to Manage > Pages and from the list of Pages hover over the Page title you want to find the ID of. Every time you hover over, your browser’s status bar will show you a URL ending with a number like this.

http://www.xyz.com/wp-admin/page.php?action=edit&post=6

Open in new window

The number with which the URL ends is the Page ID (6 in this case).

-. edit your active theme
-. find the following function
<ul>
  <?php wp_list_pages(); ?>
</ul>

Open in new window

-. change it to :
<ul>
  <?php wp_list_pages('exclude=6' ); ?>
</ul>

Open in new window

-. save and upload the .php file that you have edited (if you editing it locally)

I couldn't find that code in my theme. I think this is the code that creates my nav (it's from header.php), but I'm not sure how to edit it.
<div id="access" role="navigation">
			  <?php /*  Allow screen readers / text browsers to skip the navigation menu and get right to the good stuff */ ?>
				<div class="skip-link screen-reader-text"><a href="#content" title="<?php esc_attr_e( 'Skip to content', 'twentyten' ); ?>"><?php _e( 'Skip to content', 'twentyten' ); ?></a></div>
				<?php /* Our navigation menu.  If one isn't filled out, wp_nav_menu falls back to wp_page_menu.  The menu assiged to the primary position is the one used.  If none is assigned, the menu with the lowest ID is used.  */ ?>
				<?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'container_class' => 'menu-header', 'theme_location' => 'primary' ) ); ?>
			</div><!-- #access -->

Oh, this is a whole other scenario.

Check in your theme option (left hand side, under Appearances) the link MENU like this one :

 menus

click on it, then you will get something like this on the right hand side:
-. make a new menu
-. tick on the pages that you WANT to appear (in this case I left out the FAQ)
-. click Add to Menu

and there you have it, a menu lefting out specific page(s)

euh... your welcome?

but i think it's customary to give the points to somebody else's comment as solution and not  to your own comment ?
