Pages created will not appear in your Site Menu.
The 'Visibility' will be shown as 'Online'. There are three visibility 'states' possible: Online, Private and Offline.
Tap to activate dropdown and change.
Online: (default) this collection (or page) will be live and accessible to anyone.
Private: this collection (or page) will be accessible only to those with the password.
Select and enter password (always shown here).
If visibility is set to Private this will remove the page from being indexed by the search engine crawlers so may affect your SEO performance.
Offline: this collection (or page) will be inaccessible and visible only to you. The visibility of linked pages (within the Collection Page) will not be affected.
Changing the visibility to Offline will remove this page from your site menu. It will not be indexed for SEO.
Add to Site Menu
