Yes, I'm using WP 3.1.1. But never mind - I found a way to display the pages I want in the menu without using exclude.
More importantly, the Levitation slider doesn't function as it should. I've got 3 images rotating. I've got the resizing turned OFF, and yet the slider is resizing them UP. These images are all 300 px high and less than 600 wide, yet they are being scaled UP to well over 400 px high - and again, I've got the resizing turned OFF so they shouldn't be resizing at all.
PS: I did create a cache folder in the Levitation theme and set the chmod properties to write 777. But again, I've got resizing turned off, so this shouldn't even matter.
