How to stop new pages being automatically added to the menu, on a WordPress.com website

Katharine asks…

“I am sure there must be a way to link to a page on site that does not appear in any other way except through the link. I would like to have a hidden contact page for a certain use that is separate from the regular contact page and not visible except by linking. Please tell me this is do-able! (?) Always indebted to you.”

It’s totally do-able! :-) I’m presuming you’re using a custom menu and the new page is getting added to your menu automatically? If so, go to Appearance > Menus, click the little down arrow on the unwanted menu item and then click the red “Remove” link.

To prevent this happening again, uncheck the box next to “Automatically add new top-level pages to this menu”.

Finally, don’t forget to click “Save Menu” :-)

Let me know!
