Removing Page Children from Tabs (4 posts)

    I have just set up a new wordpress based site at http://www.geogteacher.com .

    I have started creating pages. But I am having two problems.

    1. I only want page parents to appear in the tabs on the page header

    At the moment every page I create appears in the tabs at the top of the page. Is there anyway that I can edit something or use a plugin so that it is only page parents that appear in the tabs. The example in my page is the 'extended essay' tab. This is a child page so i don't want it to appear in the header.

    2. The home page appears twice in the tabs at the top

    I have set up the page so that posts appear on a different page than the main page. However I have called my main page home and therefore home appears on the home tabs twice. Even if I called the home page something else it would appear on the tabs twice (for example once as home and once as index or whatever I call it).

    Thanks for any help anyone can give me. I appreciate it. I did have a look and could not find this question anywhere else.

    Below is the header code. I would be grateful if anyone could tell me what I needed to edit to only show the top level pages and not the sub pages in it.

    Thanks Graeme

    Checking back in to say this plugin has helped completely with the first issue of removing page children from the main navigation: http://gmurphey.com/2006/10/05/wordpress-plugin-page-link-manager/
