Whether it’s for privacy reasons or just to make your website more streamlined, there are many reasons you may want to hide a page on WordPress. But how exactly do you go about doing this? Don’t worry, hiding pages on WordPress is actually quite simple, and in this blog post we’ll break down the different ways you can accomplish this.
Option 1 – Password Protect Your Page
The first option for hiding a WordPress page is to password protect it. This means that anyone who visits the page will have to enter a password before they can view the content. This is great if you want to keep something private without deleting it or making it completely inaccessible. To password protect your page just follow these steps:
Go to “Pages” and select the page you want to password protect
Click “Edit” on the right-hand side of the screen
Scroll down until you see “Status & Visibility” and click “Edit” next to it
Check the box that says “Password protected” and type in a password of your choice
Click “OK” and then click “Update” at the top-right corner of the page
Option 2 – Disable Comments
Another way to hide a page on WordPress is by disabling comments for that specific page. This makes sure that no one can comment on your page, but doesn’t prevent them from viewing it like password protection does. By default, all pages have comments enabled, so if you want to disable them just follow these steps:
Go to “Pages” and select the page where you want to disable comments 2. Click “Edit” at the right-hand side of the screen 3. Scroll down until you see “Discussion” section 4. Uncheck both boxes next to “Allow Comments” and “Allow Trackbacks & Pingbacks” 5. Click Update at the top-right corner of the screen 6. Your changes will now be saved!
Option 3 – Move The Page To Draft Status The last option for hiding a page on WordPress is by moving it into draft status so that only those with access can view it (e.g., admins). This method also gives you an easy way of keeping track of hidden pages as they are still visible in your Pages list but marked as drafts instead of published pages (so no one else can see them). Here’s how you can move a page into draft status: 1) Go to Pages > All Pages 2) Click Edit next Status & Visibility 3) Select Draft from dropdown menu 4) Click OK 5) Click Update at top-right corner 6) Your changes will now be saved! Now no one other than admins will be able to view your hidden/draft pages!
Hiding a page on WordPress is easy once you know how! There are multiple ways of accomplishing this depending on your needs; for example, if privacy is what matters most then using password protection may be best whereas if streamlining is more important then disabling comments may be preferable instead. Either way, with these tips in mind any website owner should have no trouble mastering how to hide/protect their pages from accidental visitors!
