Here are some instructions to delete a page from your navigation menu:

  1. Click Websites Manager in the left navigation menu. Then, click Edit Site.




  2. Click your navigation menu so it's highlighted.




  3. On the right, in Site Navigation Menu Settings, click Links. Select the page that you want to delete and then click the minus sign to the top right of the link list. That will remove the page from your navigation menu.




  4. Save and Publish to have the changes go live.

I deleted my Blank page from my site list, but it did not delete from my site...what can I do? Major blip on my site....


New to Homestead. Like it so far, but on my site, the word BLANK appears in the button lineup with a blank page linked to it. I have deleted it from the page list as instructed, but it didn't go away! Looks amatuer...aaahhh!

After you delete the page, then as the final step, you'll need to delete the link from the navigation menu. Follow the steps in this thread and let me know if you run into any problems.

The instructions above show you how to delete the link. To delete the actual page, just click the View Page button and on the drop-down menu, there is a small "x" next to each page name which will allow you to delete the pages.

to redirect the page to a page of another site, you can place this code in the head section. If you want the page to direct instantly leave the conent = value set to "0", or you can adjust this number in seconds if you want the redirect to be delayed. Then of course just edit the url for the page you want to redirect to.

<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=http://www.yourdomain.com/index.html">

How do you remove a selection on the menu bar? I deleted the page in the page section and deleted the word in the "edit" mode, but the menu bar remains unchanged, the selection still appears.

Follow the steps above, except when you get to step 3, notice there is a + sign to add links and a - sign to delete links.

New page with 6 new names I can't get rid of..


Hi, I added a page and gave it a name. I realized the the name was to large on my navigation
tab and deleted it and added another. Now I have 2 names for the same page and it won't go away. I rename the page but it just keeps adding names to my navigation tab.
How can I change the name to my new page and get rid of the others?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled more publishing issues....link to page showing error 404 message.

I did as you instructed and deleted the extra pages in order to publish my updates to pagesd without paying for additional pages and
somewhere in that lost a couple of pages.  I have rebuilt and successfully
published these but there is one page that is still missing the link and giving
the error 404 message (after deleting the extra copies of this page).  I have gone to help and followed the instructions
about repairing a link to no avail.  Further assistance would be much
appreciated.

Regards,

Kris

unable to update
and change website pages


Hi Kristina6139,  You have exceeded the 5 page limit
for your hosting plan. If you click the View Page button, you'll see a list
of all the pages in the site. See image below.  If you hover your mouse
over the page names in the drop-down menu, you'll see a small "x"
appear on the right side, which is actually a delete option. You can either
delete the extra pages (don't count the siteerror 404page), or you can add an
upgrade to your account for $2 per month which gives you 10 additional
pages. 

Mike

Hi Kristina6139,

It looks like you fixed it.  I do not get a 404 error on the about the condos page.  If you still see the error page, let us know.

Thanks

Hi Drew,  thanks so much for your assistance with my website.  I am still getting the error message but have sent the link out for some comment. Will advise if others still see link.  Maybe it is just my computer (fingers crossed).

Let us know.  I still do not see the error.  It mist be a very stubborn caching issue.  What happens if you try a different browser?

Drew,

I've had several other people let me know that they can view the whole website as well as you.  I went into google chrome and it was all there for me to see as well.  Is internet explorer issue I guess.  Not something I am concerned about unless will cause difficulties for other users?

HI Kristina6139,  I also checked the site and it seems to be working fine.  I think Drew is correct, it's just a caching issue.

In the line that says home, products affiliates, contact us, etc. I was trying to remove affilates. It removed the page the the word is still in the heading. So I thought, I would leave it and create a new affiliates page. Now I have that word twice on there. How do I remove one of them?

Pam you are usually better off posting your issue here in the community as response time is much better than trying to call and there's no horrid music to have to listen to! Post back if the info in this thread doesn't correct your issue.  :)
