I'm setting up structured navigation to show in my site master page. But i want to hide any pages from the Pages or Site Pages Library. I just want the links that i've created on the Area Navigation Settings page, so i hid the other pages in the Area Navigation Settings page, but they are still visible at the menu. What should i do?

Here is the screeshot of the result, i just want the items surrounded by red: Current navigation result

And here is the configuration on the Area Navigation Settings page: enter image description here

My site is in Portuguese, but (Oculto) = (Hidden).

There are two types of navigation settings under AreaNavigationSettings.aspx.

  1. Global Navigation
  2. Current Navigation

Global navigation refers to the Top navigation menu and the current navigation is what appears on the left sidebar. For both types of settings, there's an option to show or hide pages. Uncheck that option and hit 'OK' to apply the changes. To manually hide/delete a link from structured nav use Structural Navigation: Editing and Sorting section.

For 'MySite', you need to apply the changes to the MySite host site collection.

  • I already did exactly this, but it didn't work! And i don't know why! I've unchecked the show pages option for both and the pages are still there visible on the navigation May 6, 2014 at 12:25

  • Can you try deleting a link? ex. delete 'Template' and see if anything changes on the left nav.
