Published with WRONG pages.


I tried to publish my website, but then it said it had to be upgraded. When I logged back on, it is now published and the pages are wrong!! How do I un-publish it so that it can be fixed?!

If you need to publish more than the three pages your account allows for, there are upgrades available that give you more pages and disk space. Let us know if you need anything else.

Make sure you are not using MS Internet Explorer. The Unpublish doesn't work in IE for some reason. Try using Google Chrome as your internet browser.

Hello joy3585,

It looks like all of your pages are unpublished at this time. Let us know if you are still having problems.

To Unpublish, go to the menu on the right with your web address shown
and click "View File Manager"



Highlight/select the files you want to Unpublish then click the Unpublish button on the left. The Unpublish button doesn't show up in Internet Explorer. I use Chrome.



I hope this helps!

suspending website for a period of time.


I have an issue with a person at my moose lodge who has put up a website and he used most of my writings, pictures, etc. I'd like to suspend my website for a short period of time to get things worked out.

The easiest thing to do, is just unpublish the pages. Or if it's going to be more long term, and want to avoid being charged, you can actually close the account, and re-open it at a later date.

Once a page is published can it be hidden or unpublished without deleting it and losing its content?.


I am cancelling one of the events that I published on my site, but want to keep the content on the page in case I have the event later on. I want to hide it, not lose it.

If it's easier, you can just rename the page and save it. Then go into the File Manager screen and delete the page under the old name.

Also, as mentioned directly above, you can rename the pages, ie. index to index1, contact to contact2, etc. exept don't publish the copies you made, then go into the file manager and delete index, contact etc.

Hi Drew, I have several pages needing updates and was going to unpublished all of them until ready. But we decided to just put a white box on top of everything and leave it alone due to all the links that would go nowhere. The site is www.alamorunfest.com  I don't have time to make secondary page for each page that needs updating. a big site.  I am also chaining the width of the site.  so thanks anyway! mary  still don't understand why the unpublished button is grayed out on some of my pages in file manager.

Hi mary9288,

What you have done will work fine.  If you want us to take a look, then give us a couple of specific pages that you are not able to unpublish and we will take a look.

Thanks

Hello,

You can unpublish the pages as shown above to take the pages of the internet. If you want to completely delete your site, you can do this by clicking 'delete this site' under the edit site button at the website manager. WARNING: Deleting your site can not be reversed and all files will be permanently deleted.

UNDER CONSTRUCTION:
You can create a text box: "Under Construction" or whatever you want to use to identify your site's condition. Expand the text box to cover your menus, add a color background to hide the contents, use text centering, borders and padding to create a nice presentation. The same thing can be accomplished using any image. Be creative. Covering the menus will prevent access to other pages without having to change the status of your site.
