What is the difference between making my edited web page status as "Draft" or "Online"

  • Online means the page is online and available for visitors.
  • Draft means the version of the page you are editing is not visible to anonymous visitors but will be seen by Content Administrators
    • If the page was previously online and you make it into draft mode, you will now have an online and draft version of the page.
    • The Online version will be seen by visitors.
    • Only the content administrators can view Draft pages.
    • This does not mean the page is not visible to site visitors.

When you start with a new page, the default status is online. If you save the page in this mode, your website will have a page available to visitors. If you are working on a new page and you don't want this page to be available to visitors you must set it to draft before you save it for the first time.
