    Organizing the site tree in admin panel Link to this post

    If I want to implement folders in the tree so i can do something like...
    - Main Nav
    ... - Home
    ... - Section 2
    ... - Section 3
    - Footer Nav
    ... - Contact
    ... - Terms and Conditions

    Is there like.. a page type I can use? Should I use a virtual page and just not link it or is there a better way ?

    I might be misunderstanding your post, but this tutorial/recipe might be what you're after.

    Kind of but not really.

    I want to put items in the site tree that don't actually link to any pages.
    When I'm just continually adding pages , it looks unorganized to have like 20 items just hanging there that are uncategorized.

    I want to put like..
    SiteContent

    Login / Registration
    --Login Page
    --Register Page

    Main Nav
    --Home
    --About Us
    --==Contact
    --Products
    --==Product1

    Footer Nav
    -- Privacy Policy

    Otherwise it'd just be pages uncategorized and hard to read.

    Well there isn't much you can really do except not put them in the sitetree but make the include files in your template directory, but then obviously you can't edit them online.

    If you want the ability to edit them online, then they'll have to show up in the sitetree so you can access them. Best thing to do would be just to put them all as a sub page of one parent and remove the option for 'show in menu' so they don't show up in your navigation.
