Is there a Genesis-specific way that I can hide specific pages (like "Download your FREE book HERE!" or "Thank you [for giving me that email address so you got that FREE ebook in the first place]" from my main navigation menu?
I've downloaded two plugins that I thought would do the trick:
but those pages are still in the menu, mocking me. I located the page ID numbers for each page that I wanted hidden, thinking the second plug-in (WP Hide Pages) was asking for them. I added the page ID numbers but that didn't work. Turns out I need a CSS Class name. What is a CSS Class name and how do I find it? And do I even need the page ID numbers?
I really can't code well, so I can't understand where I would need to put the page IDs into a file as this page suggests:
I'm using Pretty Darn Cute's Modern Blogger Pro child theme, and while I would LOVE
to ask the people at PDCD, I'm getting an message from their site that I don't have an account with them. And just to make things more fun, I can't find a receipt email from them Genesis from where I purchased Modern Blogger Pro back in 2014. I do have a link on my Downloads page at Genesis, so at least I know for certain that I bought the theme through Genesis and not PDCD.
So I'm asking here- apologies if that's a no-no. I'm so confused and frustrated at this point. Thanks in advance!

I responded to your other topic here: (link)
I responded to your email this morning, confirming that to create an account at Pretty Darn Cute Design, you can take a screenshot of your account area at my.studiopress.com, showing the Modern Blogger Pro theme.
Pages aren’t automatically added to your menu, unless you checked the box (below) to add them. There is no need for plugins or coding to not display a page in your menu.June 15, 2015 at 9:14 am #156258David ChuParticipant
I've got something for you to check. Unless you have some unusual process on your site, you don't have to have any Pages at all in your menu if you don't want to. No plugin needed at all, either.
Go to Appearance... Menus.... and be sure that your main menu is showing (if not, select it in the dropdown near the top). Now take a look at Menu Settings down below your menu items. If "automatically add new top-level pages" is checked, that can be unchecked, and then simply delete any Page from the menu. Save, and enjoy. And no, this won't delete any Pages. 🙂 It just takes them out of the menu.
The only tiny downside is that now if you want new Pages in your menu, you'll need to add them manually.

I'm sorry for the double- post. When I looked at the forum list, I never saw my post. I assumed it was indeed eaten and I started a second time.
David and Susan, thank you both. I went to menu just like David said, and tried to do a drag and drop of the pages I wanted hidden. It was so ridiculously easy to do, and it worked.
Susan, I'll get a Screenshot to you right now. Thank you for your help.June 15, 2015 at 8:00 pm #156340SusanModerator
You are welcome. I will close this as resolved.
