I'm new to website construction, and I need some help with an assignment I'm working on. I have created a Home Page, with a child page under it. This child page is not accessible from the menu and is hidden in search as well. My intention is to have the contents of this child page displayed in a small section on the left sidebar of the Home Page.
Can somebody please let me know how I can achieve this in the simplest way possible? Thanks in advance!

<% control AllChildren %> can be used to access data from Children even if Show in Menus/Serach is off

hi zenmonkey. thanks for the reply!
i would like to ask another question if you don't mind. if the HomePage has more than one child, how do i pick a specific child to be displayed instead of all of them?

<% control Page(child-page-urlname) %>
<% end_control %>
where 'child-page-urlname' is the string from the page url.

hi, guys. i'm still currently stuck with this. in fact this is the final piece of my website but i can't seem to get it working. tried the method by brucep but as i've reported, i got only a blank page in return after making the changes.
anybody has more suggestions on how i can get this done? thanks in advance again!

Blank pages are usually calls to Bad Functions or ones that return bad data. Since the Child Control is built in you may either have the URL parameter written wrong or a problem with one of the Data Calls in the control. You could always structure the call in the template like
<% control AllChildren %>
<% if Title=x %>
Your Template Goes Here
<% end_if %>
<% end_control %>
