My site has a blog component as well as an extensive collection of static pages (nearly 300).
I currently have a hand-coded drop down menu showing selected pages in my top-of-page navigation menu.
I created this as a work-around since my theme (Prosense) does not have native support for menus and my attempts at adding native support were unsuccessful.
I'm ready for a new theme and am now trying out different ones, but when I select "preview" every single page on my site (nearly 300) appears in the menu.
For example, this is the case with 2011, atahualpa, and other themes I've tried.
I have not assigned any "parent" attributes to any pages, and I do not wish to designate subpages and end up with a huge "cascading" menu of pages and subpages.
I just want to have 15-20 selected pages in my menu as standalone links.
What do I need to do so that when I try out new themes (and make the switch) only the selected pages appear in the menu?
My site is here
Any advice would be most appreciated.
