Hugo, ive had a look my end on my WordPress site and from what I can see, you would need to include all of the pageIDs separate by commas.

You would simply list all of the IDs in the “Exclude:” box that are to be excluded. [u]Use a comma to separate the IDs.[/u]

Simple go to Pages and click on the Home page as if to edit it.  Look up in the URL.  The Page ID is hidden in the URL. Look for “post= ” and a number to the right.  That number is your Page ID. Hope this helps.
