Navigate to the Connections : Settings admin page and click the Advanced tab. Disable the Name option in the Permalinks section.
Hope this helps!
I found the setting. Once disabled, the page still exists. Is there a process in which to eliminate the pages altogether?
The pages actually do not exist whether the option is enabled or disabled. You never actually leave the page the shortcode itself is embedded in. The shortcode, very basically, looks at the URL and renders out base on the address in the browser.
Disabling the option does prevent the links themselves from being generated therefore not accessible to users or search engines. But it is still possible to manually type them if one knows how to properly construct the correct link. If you are concerned about that, on the same settings page, you could change the Name slug to a series of unguessable letters and numbers.
Hope this helps!
I understand now. Thanks Steven.
