Hiding entire main menu in article?

Post by Dtorr1981 » Mon Jun 27, 2016 7:27 pm

Hi All,

I'm having a strange issue, I want to hide/remove the main menu from a sngle article - Sounds simple...So, i create the article, assign it as a menu item in a hidden menu then go to find the menu module in 'Modules' to uncheck it so it does not display and its no where to be found?

This is going to be a new landing page which will have its own menu, so im baffled?

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

I am assuming you mean that you can't find the module for the menu. Some templates use menus directly; they don't need a module to display the menu. In that case, you will have to check the template's settings on how to hide the menu for specific menu items.

If you can't find the menu settings in the template itself, then look harder in the modules, it might be that you are a 3rd party module for the menu.
