Page visibility

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

Online: (default) this page will be live and accessible to anyone.

Private

Private: this 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

Offline: this page will be inaccessible and visible only to you.

Changing the visibility to Offline will remove this page from your site menu. It will not be indexed for SEO.

Site Password to protect your whole Format Site

It is possible to set a site-wide password that, once entered will allow your invited visitors to see your site without having to re-enter the password.

Please see our Setting a site-wide password guide.
