    I would like to be able to add a new page without it showing up on either the top menu or side menu and be able to hyperlink the new page, internally, to another page or post within WordPress.

    I am using the Theme called ‘Skirmish’.

    Thanks

  • One way to do this is to use the built-in WordPress Custom Menus. Here is a video tutorial:

    Thank you for your quick response.

    I don’t want the actual pages to be seen at all until someone clicks on the hyperlink.

    The link pages will just be stored and not accessible except by hyperlink.

    I want to be able to link to another internally stored page without that page being seen otherwise.

    Hi dfj.

    If you use the wordpress custom menu manager like in the video, you can create for example 10 pages, but only choose to show 5 of them in your navigation by dragging them into place. The only way your users will get to see the other 5 pages can be as desired using hyperlinks within text on your pages, choosing the relevant page.

    You could go even further and create specific page menus just for some internal pages, again, ONLY showing on those pages using the widgets manager but this is probably a tutorial for another day!

    It sounds like a custom post type is exactly what you need. A custom post type will never be shown anywhere unless you specifically call for it.

    The Custom Post Type UI plugin makes it easy to create and manage custom post types.

    I think that might just confuse further!
    you should be able to simple apply a hyperlink to a non-menu page that you create by following my last post

    The link pages will just be stored and not accessible except by hyperlink.

    Based on what the OP said in the original post, custom post types are the best fit.

    Thank you all!

    I will give these ides a try.

    The custom post type method has worked well in this application and I think the custom menu manager will be very useful as well.

    Thanks to all
