Because of a previous issue, I removed a particular page I didn't need in the website. I was able to esily and renamed that level.   But located in the website map is a  level called/referrd to as "special pages".  What is it for?  How can I remove it from my map and sitemap?  It holds the page I removed and I don't need it anymore, so why retain any information on it.   

Included is a view of what I'm talking about.  It can't be deleted like a page or level.

This looks like a blog.

If you don't want it anymore -> step1 settings, Advanced TAB -> blog -> remove all info there. (also the post list.)

The blog is automaticle set to special pages if filled, after that you can use it on your sit.

So to remove it from special pages you need take all info off, this way you have no blog and it is taken from the special pages at that point.

Have a nice day,

Andre

When you refer to 'post list', you mean the list of files and folders that are listed in the Destination folder, right before evrything is uploaded to the server?

If so, by removing a file(s) at that point, you are removing a page that can't be viewed any longer on the internet.  I've had issues with Google Webmaster tools telling me of a problem that involves a page that isn't in my sitemap or actual website [a page that no longer is needed], but is in the Destination before uploading.  Correct?

If this is correct, then this will solve alot of Mobility and general website issues with my SEO.

No. I mean these:

Hope this is more clear, let me know if you still have trouble.

And if you removed files from your server in step5, do a full upload to correct.

I did what you showed, but after that I came into another problem.  There are issues with Google over a blog file, which I assume had to do with what I removed.  I received a error message from google stating that I have a issue:

To owner of http://www.badmancharters.com/,

Search Console has identified that your site is affected by 1 new issue of type Coverage.

Top Errors (5 maximum)

Errors can prevent your page or feature from appearing in Search results. The following errors were found on your site:

  • Submitted URL seems to be a Soft 404

What I read is that this problem will/could affect indexing of the site, ultimately ranking.  I still have a blog folder, can I remove/delete it from being uploaded without harm to the site?    I can delete on the attachment of the page shown, correct?

 This is the page/blog in question giving me the problem,     http://www.badmancharters.com/blog/index.php

Yes you can remove it.
If google keeps giving you a hard time it is a good idea to make an htacces file for a 404 error.

For more info on that see: https://helpcenter.websitex5.com/fr/post/208301

I don't think ranking will be affected.

So then you create a .htaccess file using notepad?

Where would this .htacces file located on your site and how does it get into a website? 

A little more info would be helpful, I've heard of them but have no experience with it.

I can explain it here, but this is a standard file for websites, so if you search the internet you probably find people that can explain it way better then I can.

But yes, you create it with notepad and the complete name is the extension with nothing in front.

It is placed where you want to use it or if everywhere in the root. This depends also on the code you use. Again there are many possibilitys, just check internet if you looking for simple explanation and don't want to end in expert programming sites use the search for dummy's with the htacces file name. or a similair frase......
