Create a Hidden Page That Does Not Show on Navigation Bar as Navigation Category

There is often a need to create a Content Page that you do not want listed as a Category in your Navigation Bar. This is considered a Hidden Page

NOTE: Please understand that there in no way to create a Hidden Page that is guaranteed to be 100% private. The Page, though not listed in your Navigation Bar, hence it is hidden from view, can still be picked up by the search engines.

Some possible reasons for creating a hidden page:

  • Perhaps you want to add your CV (Curriculum Vitae) to a separate page and add a link to the CV onto your Bio Page?
  • Perhaps you have a need to add a link to a pdf file for a free ebook?
  • Perhaps you are a gallery and need to create hidden pages for the artist biographies and link them to each artist's Collection Description? 
  • Perhaps you have lengthy stories for some of your art? Adding a short excerpt to the comments section and linking to a Hidden Page for the complete article works great.
  • Perhaps you want to offer a Free Print to new Newsletter Subscribers?

Create the Page:

  • from FASO Control Panel
  • Click 'More Categories' (left menu bar)
  • Click on 'Pages' (right column)
  • Click 'Add New'
  • Add Title for the page
    *Page Title text will appear in the page url and on page for the website visitor to see
  • Add image(s) in the text editing screen (place cursor in text editing screen where you want image to go; click on image gallery icon (mountains & sun icon on far right); follow prompts)
  • Add text
  • Click 'Add & Save Now'

Link to this Hidden Page

  • go to your live website at this url: yourartistdomainname.com/pages (substitute YOUR DOMAIN for yourartistdomainname.com)
  • click on the individual Page Title to open the Page
  • copy the url from address bar
    It will look something like this:
    http://yourartistdomainname.com/page/PageTitle
