Blog entries showing up on main menu

I’m trying not to have individual blog entries show up as a submenu to the main BLOG menu item. What I’d like to do is to have the menu button link directly to the blog index and I think I can do that. What I haven’t been ale to do is to stop each entry showing up. Surely that’s what the blog index is for? What am I missing? I’ve checked and rechecked all the 'do/don’t show in menu options, and the menu is set to manual. Everything else seems okay.

@stemperley I’m assuming you are using Sparkle’s Menu widget?
If you are then please follow the screenshot instructions so you can have your main menu connect you with the Blog Index page…

Thanks, I’ll check it out.
