removing pages from my WP Graphene website

Trash that page and check if it still shows up. You can restore that page later.
So I went ahead and trashed one of the pages that I don’t want to show up on my website anymore.
The bad news: That page still shows up on the menu; my main goal is to get these pages off of the header & submenus on the website.
The other news: When I click on the menu link for the page, I get an Error 404 message. So I still haven’t been able to accomplish my main goal of getting rid of the page links on the menu bar and drop-down menus.
BTW – The website in question is Trailsnet.com and the pages I’m trying to get rid of are the Trailsnet Reviews & Trail Tours and all of the pages on the pull-down menu below them.
Thanks for your help & patience.

It seems you are using custom menus. Why can’t you just remove it from Header Menu? Go to Appearance –> Menus and select your Header Menu and remove those unwanted links from menu.Quote:I have tried the following:
1.) going to the main menu in the menu page and clicking on the Remove button for each page, then hitting the Save Menu button. I have tried this numerous times and it just takes me to a blank page with no error message. Then when I go back to the site, the pages are still there.
If you can’t remove a particular item try creating a new menu without the unwanted pages and use that instead.
I wonder if a plugin is causing the blank page.Quote:If you can’t remove a particular item try creating a new menu without the unwanted pages and use that instead.

Normally that would be the ideal solution. But since this is a trails website, I’ve got hundreds of pages, so it would be very time consuming to create a whole new menu, unless there’s some easy way to do it that I don’t know about.
That’s a good question about the plugin. I can add pages to the menu and then hit the “Save Menu” button and it’s no problem. But when I remove pages & save the menu, then I get the blank page. It’s really weird.Quote:Set up a new page called Archive (or similar). Make sure the new page doesn’t appear in the Menu.
Make your page a child of Archive.
Hey Puffin – Thanks. That sounds like it might work. So I started the process of creating an Archive page, but I don’t want to mess things up any more, so I hope you don’t mind if I ask for a little advice in working through the process.
So I just created the archive page and it is now in my “Pages” menu in the left hand column of my main WP menu page. I have not yet checked it and clicked on the “Add to Menu” button, because then I would have an “Archive” link in the top menu bar of the trailsnet website.
But I will have to add it to the menu in order to put all the other pages that I want to disappear in there. So how do I do that without the Archive page showing up in any visible menus on the website?Quote:Then try to temporarily disable the plugins while you work on the menu.
That’s an excellent plan b. I’m going to try making the “invisible” archive page first. If that doesn’t work, I’ll start disabling plugins a few at a time and then removing pages.
You guys have great suggestions. I wish my site wasn’t so messed up. Most of these ideas should be working without all this hassle.
