The First Thing You Should Do Is Turn Off Any Pages That You're Not Going To Use

The first thing you should do is turn off any pages that you're not going to use.  For example, if you're not going to use the Calendar page, when you create a website you can turn it off by selecting "off" from the "access" drop-down.  Once the page is turned off, it's removed from your menu and is no longer accessible.  (Notice that you can also select "Members Only" from the access drop-down.  Pages set to "Members Only" access are only accessible to logged-in members of your website.)




To change the name of a page, simply enter the new name.  To change the order of your pages, simply drag and drop them using the up-down arrows on the right hand side.

Use the "Add Menu" link to create a drop-down menu that you can use to list pages under.  Drag and drop pages into the new menu.  Update the new menu's name.  To delete a menu, use the "x" button.  (The pages contained in the menu will not be deleted.)
