How to Hide an Article

Author: Edward Hardin Reference Number: AA-00740 Views: 6325 Last Updated: 09/28/2012 01:08 PM 0 Rating/ Voters

You can hide an article from public, so that anonymous users and Client users wouldn't see it. To hide an article, you need to "unpublish" it. This can be done in a number of ways:

Please note that articles hidden by "unpublishing" are still visible to the Staff users. If you wish to hide them from staff users, you would need to change these articles' access restrictions.

From Article Edit Page

Open the article for edit and click on the Advanced tab.

Remove the checkbox against "Published" and click "Save&Close".

From the Articles List in Admin Area

Go to Articles > Articles & Categories page in the admin area. 

You can see article statuses (Published/Unpublished) in the list.

You can toggle the article status by clicking on the status icon.

By Bulk Action

Go to Articles > Articles & Categories page in the admin area. Mark checkboxes against articles you wish to hide. You'll see the group actions at the bottom:

Click "Edit" to see the list of options you can change in these articles.

Select the checkbox against "Published". The checkbox on the right must be unchecked.

Click "Save&Close" to apply changes.
