[resolved] Exclude "Home" from Menu ? (8 posts)

    I'm trying to use the exclude feature with wp_list_pages and I want to exclude my Home page from the menu, but my home page has no page ID. How do I tell wordpress to exclude a page with no page ID from the list pages?

    it's probably just coded into your menu separately..

    you could comment out/delete it from your nav

    similar to:
    <li><a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>">Home</a></li>

    Thanks for the quick response. I'm a little new to php. I can figure out where to place it in the nav, but I sense I need to replace bloginfo('url') with something. Can you give me the full code if I tell you my site is leahschrager.com/wordpress?

    do you see in your header.php file, the code your menu is being generated from?

    the code I posted above is something you would need to delete or comment out.....

    if you can find your navigation code, I could tell you more specifically

    it'll start like <ul id="nav"> and end with </ul>

    paste that here....

    Also, offtopic, you have some real goofy code showing up in your source code.....

    <table width="900" border="0" align="center" class="table">
    <td class="background"><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" dir="ltr" lang="en-US"> 
    <head profile="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
    <meta name="generator" content="WordPress 2.9.2" /> 
    <title>Leah S </title>

    not sure where that's coming from.... but it shouldn't be showing in the <body> section of your theme..?

    you can see it in context here

    things get real strange around line 19....

    thanks. i'll look into that goofy code :-)

    Here is the nav code:
    <ul id="nav">
    <?php wp_list_pages('title_li=&depth=1'); ?>

    that's all you have? the very next line is </ul>?

    because Home is not hardcoded in that little bit of code, so I would think it would be a page then.....

    I think so. This is the code for my header.php:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" <?php language_attributes(); ?>>

    <head profile="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="<?php bloginfo('html_type'); ?>; charset=<?php bloginfo('charset'); ?>" />
    <meta name="generator" content="WordPress <?php bloginfo('version'); ?>" />

    <title><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> <?php wp_title('—'); ?></title>

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>" type="text/css" />
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?> RSS Feed" href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" />
    <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo('pingback_url'); ?>" />

    <?php wp_head(); ?>

    <div id="page">

    <div id="header"> <img src="http://leahschrager.com/wordpress/wp-content/themes/infimum/images/header2.jpg" alt="" width="880" height="100" />

    <ul id="nav">
    <?php wp_list_pages('title_li=&depth=1'); ?>

    <?php if($post->post_parent)
    $children = wp_list_pages("title_li=&child_of=".$post->post_parent."&echo=0"); else
    $children = wp_list_pages("title_li=&child_of=".$post->ID."&echo=0");

    if ($children && is_page()) { ?>
    <ul id="subnav">
    <?php echo $children; ?>

    <?php } else { ?>
    <?php } ?>


    The permalink for the home page is:

    Thanks so much!!

    well, i ended up using this plugin:

    and not including the "home". thereby avoiding coding. and it worked.

    thanks for your help!
