Confluence Blueprint: Suppress Creation of Space Shortcuts (in left hand Navigation/Sidebar)

Using the excellent Atlassian Blueprint tutorials (beginner, intermediate, advanced), I've created a few blueprints. With one blueprint, I'd like to suppress the default blueprint action that creates a "Space Shortcut" (in the lefthand navigation/sidebar) on page creation (my page is an alternative/replacement for Atlassian's "Default [Blank] Page"). Obviously having a space shortcut (in the sidebar) make no sense for a "default" page as a high percentage of pages will be created from it (the space shortcut in the sidebar will return nearly all pages in the space).

Using the file naming from the tutorials, I think the Space Shortcut may be controlled / managed via atlassian-plugin.xml but I'm not sure which of the three component modules (content-template, blueprint, web-item) is responsible.

Can any shed some light on how to approach this?

Many thanks!

EDIT - this question has been answered (follow the link above), the answer was a resounding "no" you can't without custome coding.

Hello. The link to the answer is broken. Could you please provide it to me?
