There are multiple Save and Publish options you can use depending on your editing status.
When you select Save, the content changes are stored but not published to the ‘live’ public site. The Save button is ideal when you are working on a page for a long period of time. Save regularly to ensure that you don’t lose any changes.
The Save and publish button saves and publishes your changes, making it instantly visible on the ‘live’ public site.
Before you commit to publishing your page changes, click the Preview button to see how the page will appear on the site.
Unpublishing a page hides it from view on the ‘live’ site. When unpublished, a page (node) will appear dimmed in the tree structure (as per the visual below)...
The Publish option within the Actions menu is ideal for publishing multiple pages or when you want to publish a page and all of its sub-pages at once.
Right-click a page node in the Content tree and select Publish.
The Publish slide out menu will appear for you to choose which pages should be published.
There are three publish options:
The content editor will not let you leave a page or log out if there are any unsaved changes. This prevents accidental loss of your timely edits.
If you do attempt to navigate to another page, a warning box appears asking you to either Discard changes or Stay on the page to continue editing.
Scheduled publishing lets you publish a page at a specific date and time when you’re unavailable.
The Scheduled Publishing settings can be found on the ‘Info’ tab of the page you wish to publish. Simply select a Publish at date then click Save. The page will automatically publish itself on the set date.
Set a Unpublish at date and the page will automatically unpublish on the set date.
The structure tree page names and node icons appear differently depending on their ‘Save’ and ‘Publish’ status.
Featured below are the two node states.
Text link and icon appears in black (as per visual below).
Text link and icon appears dimmed out in grey (as per visual below).
Pages that are protected via Public access permissions have a red circular symbol appended on the node icon.
