I recently started re-building my business website located here: with the MWPSK 1.2.1 with all the extensions from the community. I downloaded the files from

My goal is to retain the exact same design as I had before in the static site for the simple reason of pratice and knowing that I can do it.

My MWPSK site is at

If you notice the ABOUT US page on the Menu, I have Unchecked the Visible In Menu box in Admin > Navigation and the page still appears. I will link this and several other pages from a footer menu and some sub menus that will show up in the sidebar on individual pages. So, my question is, why isnt the Visible in Menu not working correctly?

Any help is much appreciated.

Back again,

After doing some research, I believe that I located the issue. I created a new theme using the THEME GENERATOR. I noticed that the GENERATED SKIN file dosen't have the appropriate reference. SO I replaced this: 

<asp:SiteMapDataSource runat="server" ID="menuDataSource" ShowStartingNode="false" />


<cc3:CustomSiteMapDataSource runat="server" ID="menuDataSource" ShowStartingNode="false" />

then of course added:

<%@ Register TagPrefix="cc3" Namespace="MyWebPagesStarterKit.Providers" %>

to the top of my .SKIN file!

In conclusion the Theme Generator needs to be updated to include the updated extensions code.
