[resolved] How to find the ID numbers of my individual pages (6 posts)

    On my WP site, http://www.lc-norway.com, I have two levels of navigation. If you look at my site, you'll see "2006" to "2009" in the navigation sidebar, as a sub-level to the page "Resultater". Then, at a sub-level to "2008", there's a page named "19. april: Trøgstad, Østfold". I want this page, and all other pages at that sub-level, to be hidden from the navigation.

    I found this page with info on how to do this:


    What it recommends is this:

    Exclude Pages from List

    Use the exclude parameter to hide certain Pages from the list to be generated by wp_list_pages.

      <?php wp_list_pages('exclude=17,38' ); ?>

    Now, I'm a WP newbie, so please bear with me. I understand that I need to change the code somewhere, but in which file? Also, how do I find the ID numbers of the pages that I want to "hide"? I can't find any page ID numbers anywhere in the Site Admin area.

    If Edit->Pages, hover your mouse over the Title of the Page to see the Page ID in the browser status bar (bottom of screen in FireFox).

    There's also a plugin that does that if you are of the mind:

    Excellent! Thank you! :-)

    Funny, though, that there isn't a way to see the ID numbers in Edit Pages.

    Now, my next question is, where do I go within the administration pages to edit the code <?php wp_list_pages('exclude=17,38' ); ?>

    OK, nevermind my last question. You answered it for me in another post.

    Thank you very much for your help!
