Unpublish Pages

Permalink
How do you unpublish pages within Concrete5.7? I have a client who wants to keep the pages for future use, but cannot have them on the site or indexed by search engines right now.

Thank you.

Composer>Attributes select
Exclude from Nav
Exclude from Search Index
Exclude from Page List
That should do it

This did indeed make the pages unsearchable and invisible to the user, BUT the links to those pages still work, so if someone had these pages bookmarked they are still "visible", I also need these pages to NOT be indexed by Google and other search engines. The "Exclude from Search" is the internal Concrete5 search index.

Thank you for your quick response.

The 'Exclude From Search Index' puts this meta tag in the head
<meta name="robots" content="noindex"/>

Had several similar questions from clients. Setting the attributes like weyboat did solves the most common needs.

for making the links inactive there are two possibilities:

a) create a site "archive" and hide this with the same attributes. move the pages to this archive structure. The old urls will change now. If the customer need the pages later he can move them back in the sitemap.

b) You can use permissions for guests. This is not for my clients :-)
- visit the page and click the cog-icon
- choose 'permissions'
- change permissions to 'manual'
- click on 'view'
- then click on the clock-icon next to guest
- you can now set a timeframe for this permission -> set the "to" date to a date in the past.
I have 'advanced permissions' on. I don't know if looks the same on 'normal permissions'.
