  • Book pages
  • Basic pages
  • Landing pages.
  • Posts

How to unpublish content

To unpublish an event, topic, book page, basic page, or landing page, head over to the editing page of your chosen content, uncheck the checkbox in the publish status tab at the bottom of the page and then click save.

Only content and site managers can unpublish posts and comments at the moment. This is very handy when moderating platforms with a lot of activity and when you don’t necessarily want to delete the posts. 

To unpublish posts, go to the edit page, uncheck the published checkbox and click save. 




Comments can be unpublished on the comments overview page and comment edit page.

How to find unpublished content

Regular users can find their own unpublished Topics and Events under the 'my events' and 'my topics' overview. If they are created in a group, they can also be found in the group events and topics overviews. Please remember to set the publish status filter to 'All' or 'unpublished' to see them.

Content and site managers can also find other unpublished events and topics in the content overview.
