Summary: At any time, you can choose to "Publish" (Show) or "Unpublish" (Hide) a page on your web site. "Unpublishing" pages allows you to continue to work on them until they are ready to publish.
pages are only visible to the editor of the page, so you are free to
view and work on them until they are ready to "publish" again. In other cases, you may simply want to have a page that you can link to, but doesn't appear to the visitor in the navigation. In this case the page is still "live" but essentially "unlisted". To Publish or Un-publish a page
1) When Logged in, in edit mode, navigate to the page that you want to Publish or Un-publish (tip: new pages are published by default when you create them, if you want to work on it for awhile before visitors see it, create the new page and then immediately un-publish it. Only editors can see unpublished pages.)
2) Click the "Settings" link in the Admin bar at the top of the window
3) Select the Page Settings Tab 4) Add/Remove the √ from the "Published" box
