Private and public pages

Pages in the CMS can be private (only accessible to logged in users) or public. Often someone will start new pages and make them private for you to work on, so here's how to make them public again.

  1. Open your primary page in the web admin
  2. Tap the button in the top right that says Private
  3. Change to public and tap save
  4. Open a child page in the editor, confirm that it is set to Public
  5. View your page in a private window or different browser that isn't logged in to the CMS. Confirm that all your pages appear in the sub nav and can be viewed as expected.

We recommend doing this 24 hours or more before you plan to publicize links. This will help ensure that search engines don't have out of date cached information. Your pages won't become automatically discoverable on the site, so they won't go truly public until you share.

This is part of a broader movement for a healthy internet. See more.
