How to disable a page

A disabled page becomes inaccessible to visitors. If someone enters its URL, the disabled page will display a 404 - Page Not Found error. Disabling a page will also make it hidden from navigation menus on your website. Once disabled, only Admins, Publishers and Authors will be able to view the page when logged in to their site account.
