    I have a regular navigation for my pages but I also have footer links for things like FAQ, Legal, etc that I would like to create but my problem is, how can I create those pages without those links appearing in the regular navigation?

    I read what I think is an answer to my question, can anyone confirm this?

    Yes, using WordPress custom menus would be the solution to this. Here is a great article on it.

    I just created this, all it does is create a menu..not exactly what I wanted. I should say what I wanted is a custom menu that will also create pages.

    With the custom menu, you create the page and add it to a specific menu. I think you are looking at it backward. Create the page first, then create the menu to display a link to the page. So create the FAQ, Legal, and other pages you want to add to your footer links, then add them in the custom menu section. Hope this helps.

    Awesome! Works. Except one problem. When I create the pages and then add them to the custom menu, they still appear in my main navigation, any fix for that?

    You would have to use a custom menu for your main navigation as well. Just make a second menu and do the same thing you did for your footer menu.

    Ok will do thank you very much!

    Now I had to put a php code in my footer as that is where I wanted it, now for the main navigation, I just have to put that in page.php, correct?

    To make a second menu, just use the custom menu settings inside your wordpress backend. Just clarifying that you dont have to add more lines to your functions.php file.

    Nevermind, I didn’t have to add any code. Just have to redo some css, particularly re-naming the classes. Thanks again
