    I use page exclude all the time, but with my other themes I can customize and add the pages on the sidebar widget menu.

    I do not have the ability to do that here.

    How can I can have only 4 items on the top and the rest of the pages on the sidebar menu widget?

    Test site here:

    also I tried to create a sidebar menu in the custom menu’s section, but I guess you can only make one menu with this theme?


    You can create your own main menu under Appearance > Menus. Just create a new menu and call it as you like (i.e. “Main”, etc.) and create your own menu items (detailed tutorial here: (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -the-menu-behaves-weird ).

    You can use the sidebar menu widget to display other menus in your sidebar. Avisio supports only one main menu but you can use the menu widget to include as many menus as you like in the sidebar or in the footer section ….


    I already tried that. Two problems, first the sidebar menu layout is ugly with all the child pages I am forced to create to get everything on here,, it is all crooked and looks cluttered and weird.

    I just wanted a nice looking list of all the pages.

    I cannot correct that because for the site to keep the clean and neat look I want, I can only have 4 parent pages on top, which is not going to cut it. I spent about 3 hours last night trying every plugin I could find to have a nice sidebar display of all the pages, (which is only going to total about 20, so not an obscene number.)

    How does creating a custom menu address that?

    I do see that I can achieve a decent layout in the menu widget, but only on the footer.

    It would seem I will have to write my own html layout and use a text widget to get what I need.

    I am finding myself spending too much time on work arounds.


    You need to change the css a bit to achieve what you want. Some people want to display the menu more minimalistic others want bullets, margins, etc. There’s no need to search for other plugins but some css skills are required. I.e. you can remove the bullets and remove the indentation by adding following code to style.css (at the very bottom):

    .widget_nav_menu a{
    background: none !important;
    list-style-type:none !important;
    padding-left: 0px !important;
