<nav id="nav">
    <ul>
        {% for page in pages if not page.date and page.title != 'Blog' %}
            {% if page.title == meta.title %}
               <li class="curr"><a href="{{ page.url }}">{{ page.title }}</a></li>
            {% else %}
               <li><a href="{{ page.url }}">{{ page.title }}</a></li>

  		{% if page.mcb_is_blog_page %}
  			{% set num = num + 1 %}
              <h5><a href="{{ page.url }}" title="{{ page.title }}">{{ page.title }}</a></h5>
              <small class="date">{{ page.date_formatted }}</small>
              <p style="font-size: smaller">{{ page.excerpt }}</p>
  		{% endif %}
	{% endfor %}
{% endif %}

{% endfor %}
