Can I hide a page, or make it temporarily inactive?

Short answer, yes.

There are often times when you may want to turn a page off, or rather hide it from showing up on your website...but, DO NOT want to delete it. "Set Inactive" accomplishes this task.

After logging into Spinternet, create a new or open an existing page. At the bottom of the screen, take note of the buttons within the gray bar.

To temporarily make a page inactive, simply click the "Set Inactive" button.

By default, all newly created pages are initially set to "Active" (Note the green "Active" label). Pages must first be saved before they can be set to "Inactive". Upon saving or when browsing through your pages/categories, you can see the status of any given page, when it was last updated, and which user made the update.

When you're ready to turn the page back on, simply navigate back to the page, and click "Set Active".
