Publish a Page

Draft Mode

Each time you create a page, you'll notice in the Options toolbar (right-hand corner) that it will be listed as Save Draft. This means, that currently, it is only available for you to view. If your domain was already live, and people could access it, they won't be able to see this page because it is in Draft mode.

To set a Published page to Draft mode, simply go to the Options toolbar, select the Options icon, and click Switch to Draft.

To publish it so that people can view it on the internet:

  1. Select the Options on the right (up arrow icon), and click Publish Page
