Support » Fixing WordPress » Exclude Pages from Navigation Plugin Not Working

  • I installed the plugin Exclude Pages from Navigation ( because I didn’t want some of the pages I created to appear in the navigation bar of my site ( The installation was very simple and seems difficult to mess up. However, when I go to Manage > Pages in WordPress, I don’t see the checkbox to exclude the page from navigation under the Related section like it shows in the screenshots on the plugin’s download page.

    Any ideas on what the problem would be and how I could go about correcting it?

  • If you go into Screen Options on the Edit page, is Exclude Pages checked? How many columns are you using on that screen, 1 or 2? I’ve found that sometimes switching from 1 to 2 columns (or vice versa) puts things back in sync.

    Doesn’t work at all for me under WP 3.01. Anyone have any clues? It’s a great idea … if it works 🙂

    You can try my plugin IM8 Exclude Pages. It does the same but its coded much more “up-to-date” and optimized and tested for WP 3.0.1 =)

    Danke! Unf, I already did, and couldn’t get that working either.

    Next, I tried ‘Simply Hide Pages’ and it worked perfectly!

    Thanks anyway 🙂

    Neither of the plug-ins above worked.

    Below is the code from my functions.php file. The theme is Zeta. Is this where I can place a code to exclude certain pages? If so where and what?

    Please help?

    # Displays a list of pages
    function dp_list_pages() {
    global $wpdb;
    $querystr = “SELECT $wpdb->posts.ID, $wpdb->posts.post_title FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE $wpdb->posts.post_status = ‘publish’ AND $wpdb->posts.post_type = ‘page’ ORDER BY $wpdb->posts.menu_order ASC”;
    $pageposts = $wpdb->get_results($querystr, OBJECT);
    if ($pageposts) {
    foreach ($pageposts as $post) {

  • ID); ?>”><?php echo $post->post_title; ?>
  • <?php

All of the sudden I have a ton of links on my navigation that used to be excluded – I removed the checkbox and they will disappear for a little while only to appear again.

I am wondering if I updated the plugin today and something happened….

Anyone seen this before?

Hi guys, i dont see a solution to this problem. Anyone have any ideas of what i can do to make the plugin appear when I edit my Page? I just installed this and thought it would be straight forward. I am on latest version of WP 3.1.3

help appreciated.
