Hiding a Portal page from Portal Navigation


Hiding portal pages (and other items) from Portal Navigation is a common requirement, but there is no obvious way to do this. There are some suggestions that using the Manage Pages portlet works, though I have not had any success with it. Here's how to do it:

First, use xmlaccess to export the page, label, or other item(s) that you need to hide from navigation. For a brief tutorial about xmlaccess exporting, the following article may be helpful: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21260098

<content-node action="update" active="true" allportletsallowed="false" create-type="explicit" domain="rel".... >
<parameter name="com.ibm.portal.Hidden" type="string" update="set"><![CDATA[true]]></parameter>

If the parameter already exists, just change the value within the CDATA block to "true" (to hide the page) or "false" (to show the page), depending on what you need.

Once you're done, save the xmlaccess file (make sure you keep a back up of your original export!) and reimport to your server. The changes should be visible to Portal Navigation on the next reload.
