    Note: This does not unpublish the page. This prevents it from being published in the future.

When you are ready to publish the page, follow the steps above but check the box next to Include when publishing.



Include when indexing enables the navigation for a page. In most cases, this should remain checked.  The primary exception is when you have created a new page in a "live" (non-draft) folder and you don't want it to be published yet. If Include when indexing is checked, the page will show up in the navigation of the other pages in the same folder resulting in a "page not found" error.
