Why is Menu Page an option when I want to publish a page?

#1

I want to publish pages but I don’t want them to be placed in the menu. The only Option that I get is Menu Page and Not published. What is the deciding factor for this behavior?

Have you tried “unlisted”?

Edit: I believe it’s called “in review” in the panel. This should “publish” your page, but don’t add it to menu’s. But it depends on how you built your site really…

The naming of these status is defined in /site/blueprints/default.yml

status:
  draft: true
  unlisted:
    label: Hidden Page
    text: The page is not listed in the main menu
  listed:
    label: Menu Page
    text: The page is listed in the main menu

It’s just another name for listed pages. While Hidden is just another name for listed.

Listed pages get a prepaid number, unlisted pages don’t. If you want to prepend a number to a page but not include it in the menu, you have to manually exclude it from the menu.

But it all depends on your structure.

By default, listed first level pages are included in the menu in the StarterKit.

Edit: Any page that is not a draft is a “published” page; it is accessible for anyone who knows/guesses the URL, while draft pages can only ever be accessed by logged-in users.
