Private: Homepage (2 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I have set the posts page to be a page other than "home". The homepage is set to be page I am calling "homepage".

    Now I am able to set this page as private so that the link does not display in the navigation, but unfortunately the title of the page says "Private: Homepage".

    Is there a way I can have the homepage title not have the heading "Private" while keeping the page link from displaying in the navigation? There is automatically a "home" link, and a second link to this page is redundant. Here is a link to my client's blog:


    Thanks as always,

    You can stop pages from appearing in the navbar at the top by using the exclude parameter of wp_list_pages().

    I don't know your theme but probably in your header.php you will have a chunk of code like below or similar:

    <?php wp_list_pages(title_li=); ?>

    Add the exlude function and the papge ID that you want excluding i.e. your homepage:

    <?php wp_list_pages(title_li=&exclude=2); ?>

    where 2 is the ID of your homepage. Then you can set your homepage to public again.
