Adds a meta box to the Edit Page page where you can set to show or exclude the page from page listings.

== Description ==

**Adds a meta box to the _Edit Page_ page where you can set to show or exclude the page from page listings.**

* Automatic exclusion of child pages
* Individually disable and enable the plugin filter
* Multilanguage: currently English and German (please help us with translations if you want to see additional languages)
* Ad-free (of course, donations are welcome)

If you would like to **contribute** to this plugin, see its <a href="" target="_blank">**GitHub repository**</a>.

== Installation ==

1. Upload the `im8-exclude-pages` folder to the `/wp-content/plugins` directory on your web server.
2. Activate the plugin through the _Plugins_ menu in WordPress.
3. Find the new _Exclude Page_ meta box on the regular _Edit Page_ page

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= Is there a way to (temporarily) disable the plugin filter? =

Yes, there is. Suppose you want to exclude a page from your menu but show it in your sitemap (both generated with `wp_list_pages`). To do so, just use the `disable_im8_exclude_pages()` function right before building your sitemap. If you would like to re-enable the filter (e.g., if you have a footer menu, where you want to excvlude the page again), you may do so by calling the `enable_im8_exclude_pages()` function.

== Screenshots ==

1. **Meta box on the page editor** - Here you can toggle the exclusion status for each page.
2. **Example of a child page with excluded ancestor** - You get notified that the child page will be automatically excluded too.
3. **Setting for new pages** - Automatically exclude new pages by default.
