Experiments in Webdesign-Creating WordPress Pages without Tabs

I was thinking there may come a day when I want to post pages of story chapters and excerpts to advertise my writing on this site.  Most times a new tab on the header tool bar is created every time you create a new page in WordPress, and I was worried this would create a cluttered look on the menu bar.

I experimented and found out there is a way to keep a page off the header.

If you assign it a parent page it will become part of the drop down menu on the parent page’s tab without being a part of the main menu.

I also know how to use a page as an index page with links to subpages and not have it listed on the main menu or become part of a drop down menu.

You can look at the results on the experiment page link on the Links page.

This opens up new webdesign options for this site. Maybe I’ll create a tutorial explaining this if anyone’s interested.
