I am trying to create pages that I do not want to appear in the main menu. From what I can see, the only way to achieve this is to use a Custom Menu, which I have created and it works fine with one exception and that relates to the Menu Description value. I need to use at least two lines of Menu Description. A Custom Menu contains a field called "Title Attribute" the contents of which are displayed where you would expect the Menu Description to appear i.e. under the main menu title, however that field does not respond to HTML codes such as
to split the description over two lines.
Is there any way, using the DynamiX theme, that I can either a) keep a page from appearing in the main menu, or b) using Custom Menu's have the CSS respond to HTML commands so that I can split my Menu Descriptions across two lines? Alternatively, can the theme implement the Menu Description field of the custom menu rather that creating the description from the Title Attribute field.
If I can stop a page appearing in the main menu, I will revert to using the standard DynamiX menus because they can split the menu Description across two lines i.e. it honours the
Currently using this plugin and it's working great so far.
I installed that plugin a few days ago and for the life of me I could not get it to exclude Pages from the DynamiX menu. Following your suggestion I have just tried it again and – sure enough – it works just fine! Perfect. Thanks for the reminder. Problem is now solved. I can control which pages are included in the standard DynamiX menu and take advantage of multiple lines of description text.
As rinkz said, I have some pages that I want to link to from within another page and in some cases from menu items in the footer. I do not want those pages to be visible from the main site menu at the top because eventually the menu just fills up and splits to another line!. So being able to create pages that are not defined in the top menu works very well.
Hi Guys – I Wondered if doing this could have seo problems or indeed benefits?? Here's a thought…. I have a client that operates a utility service company regionally. If I had for example the page content on the page showing in the menu SEO'd for the region but then re-wrote the page and created several CITY pages (not the same exactly to make sure no issues with duplicate content) but then the city pages would not immediately show in the navigation.
I wonder if doing this would be a good or bad thing due to having highly targetted and keyword rich pages??? Or does the fact the CITY pages would not be immediately show in the menu actually make this a waste of time
Any thoughts anyone?? 🙂
