This is handy and convenient for the building of the original menu, but what if you want to exclude pages from menu?

That’s where a simple plugin called Exclude Pages from Navigation comes in. This plugin adds a check box, “include this page in menus”, uncheck this to exclude pages from menu that users see on your site.
