New Page which is not shown/displayed in drop down or NavBar

Recommended Posts

This may qualify as a dumb question: However.

 

I am trying to move 4 content pages which are now linked to a Parent Page (See site, Collaberate Tab)

 

I would like to move these pages in so that users will be able to link to them from Boxes section on Collaberate Tab itself, not from drop down.

 

No matter what I do everytime I create a new page it shows in NavBar. If I assign it a "Parent" then it shows in NavBar under the parent. I understand all this. What I do not understand is how to create a page of content (or more) which are linked from content inside a page and not in drop down.

 

I have scanned and read all the material I can find and nothing seems to tell me how to create a page, archive it &/or save it and then simply link to it once done from a content page.

 

Is there not a simple way to do this?

 

In Short: Create new page of content, and it links from a page of my menu bar via hyper link but doesn't show up in NavBar?

 

Site is: http://newsite.thetradinglab.com

Hi,

 

Please forgive me. While the question is not dumb, I'm a bit confused by it. 

You said, for example:

I would like to move these pages in so that users will be able to link
to them from Boxes section on Collaberate Tab itself, not from drop
down.

Move the pages 'in'... ?  Link them from boxes on the tab? Boxes do not go in menus, so I'm confused.

 

What I do not understand is how to create a page of content (or more)
which are linked from content inside a page and not in drop down.

Menus cannot display portions of a page, only a link to the page itself, whether parent or child level.

 

You can always create your own menu at Dashboard > Appearance > Menus and stop WordPress from adding pages directly as menu items. By doing your menu manually, you have greater control over its order and the links it displays.

 

I have scanned and read all the material I can find and nothing seems to
tell me how to create a page, archive it &/or save it and then
simply link to it once done from a content page.

The edit function when creating or editing a page has a link option to make links within the page.  You don't need to archive anything.  It's done by WordPress automatically.

 

Again, I'm confused by the question, so if you can provide some screenshots of what you wish to create, it would be most helpful.

Let me reframe the question from the working site.

 

Please go to: www.newsite.thetradinglab.com

 

a) see Collaberate icon in bottom left: It takes you to our page Collaberate with 4 different boxes that lead to descriptive pages. This is good.

B) See NavBar (top) this opens only to drop down menu of the four pages and not the 'cover page' first which is what we'd like. I do not wish these four pages to show in NavBar or In drop down. I would like them to go to Collaberate page and then if they choose one of the other four.

 

So: Somehow, someway I have created these pages incorrectly or have linked them incorrectly. I can't find documentation that points to any different.

 

I cannot seem to find a way to create a page that isn't grouped to a parent and/or doesn't show in NavBar.

 

Is this clearer?

It seems that you're using default settings for the menu, which add pages by default to the menu. When you add a parent page to the menu, the parent level in the NavBar is always set up to look internally, and doesn't go to a different source - where you want it.

 

The solution is to create a custom menu.  The parent level will always have to be duplicated as a child to bring people to that link. But to make sure the links under it go to where you want (child links), the custom menu lets you pick and choose pages or even create custom links.  Please read this information: http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

 

Make sure to uncheck options to add new pages to the menu.  There are two. One in PageLines > Site Options. Another in Dashboard > Appearance > Menus.

      How can I save a page in one Platform 5 site for upload to a different site?
      Have a site in which there are a couple extensive extensive Portfolio pages made with Popthumbs, buttons and text sections. Clients are going their separate ways and need to split site into 2 different sites. I'd hate to have to recreate these pages. There MUST be a simple way to download a page and it's content from one site and upload it to a new site - not recreate the whole site, just selected (popthumbs) pages. Did asearch in forum for this and got zero results. Investigated the save/load templates extension but don't see how that can work for this case.
      Thanks for advise.

      Is there a way to make a page hidden such as a thank you page so it's not tracked by search engines, searches on the website and basically only accessed if they fill out  a form?
       
      If not is there any ideas on plugins that would work?  Can't seem to find what I'm looking for

      Good day all.
       
      I've been on this for a while now and can't seen to figure this out. I have attached a mock-up of what I have in mind alongside this post.
       
      I want to achieve what's there in the content (but quite dynamic) area of the static homepage. Area is in white bg on the mock-up. made a mistake in the tabbed area (please note: tab 1, tab 2, tab 3, tab 4). Thanks in advance.
       
      Please help.

      Hi,
       
      I am not sure what I am missing, can be a simple check box somewhere, but;
       
      The content (not the posts) on my blog page is not showing up. I have checked the following settings:
       
       
       
      1. page options>blog page>page setup>individual page section control>template> 'hide content' is not checked

      2. drag and drop>template setup>page templates>blog>active sections>'content' is present

      3. on actual blog page: edit page>page lines meta settings>page setup>individual page section control>template>'hide content' is not checked
       

      What else do I need to set to get the content appear above the blog posts?
       
      Thanks,

      Hi!
       
      This might be so elementary and basic WordPress knowledge that I really should be ashamed to ask, but still…
       
      I use the front page for the blog roll and will only allow a small number of blog-posts on the front page. To get hold of older posts I'd like to have some kind of archive list page or such. Basically a page that lists all previous blogposts (regardless of category or age) in the manner I choose to present them. In the top menu I'd like to have a link to this archive view/archive page called News (even if it's old news). 
       
      In the Pagelines Drag & Drop settings, you're able to control the layout of the archive template, but this is of course a dynamically rendered page type which can't be applied to a page. My questions are these:
       
      1. When do the settings for Archive (in Drag & Drop and in Page Options) apply, i.e. at what pages? I can't find a single page that uses the archive page template. Category, Author, Blog, Search, Tag and 404 I can find, but no page using the Archive template.
       
      2. How would you solve the News-page link in the top menu as described above?
