As we said last week, sometimes WordPress plugins are complicated and sexy; other times they’re incredibly simple but nonetheless useful.
Our favourite this week is another simple one. All Exclude Pages does is display a checkbox next to your posts and pages. Unchecking the box hides the page. That’s it :-)
For top-level nav on your site which may well now be driven by custom menus, this is less useful than it once was, but for auto-generated menus and page lists, it’s a winner.
