By default WordPress pushes out a whole array of pages I don’t want or need - archive, author, blog, monthly, recent posts, categories, comments, attachment, taxenomies, search, search results, and probably a few others I’ve missed.
Most of the time I’m building regular broshure websites with no need for anything except a few fairly static pages. How do I get rid of all the other pages? Is there a plugin that will do this? Do I have to set up a dozen redirects in the .htaccess? I’ve tried searching, but all I find is how to hide parts of a page, or customise the sitemap to hide from searches. But I don't want those pages at all, so even entering the direct URL shouldn't work.
