I'm using Drupal 7, can you tell me how to hide a page if the page does not have a menu settings at the bottom?

  • Did you unpublish it? – Kevin Jul 18 '19 at 19:11
  • I understand how to unpublish it when the page has publishing options at the bottom, but how do you unpublish when it doesn't? thank you! – user94559 Jul 18 '19 at 19:17
  • I don't understand what that means. – Kevin Jul 18 '19 at 19:56
  • @Kevin I think the publish status field or whatever it's called is disabled via the manage form display in this case. – cchen Jul 18 '19 at 20:08
  • I understand how to unpublish a page by clicking edit and going to the bottom of the page and unclicking publish, but some pages on the site I'm working on doesn't have an unpublish option on the page. So can you tell me step by step how to unpublish when the page doesn't have this option? Someone mentioned going to content, but I see nothing that would allow me to unpublish. – user94559 Jul 18 '19 at 20:09
  1. Go to /admin/content.
  2. Find the page you want to unpublish, check it.
  3. Go to action, select unpublish content, and click apply. Hope this helps.

  • This was great direction, thank you, but there doesn't seem to be an unpublish option, just delete, nor can I find the page by searching -- there has to be an easier way? – user94559 Jul 18 '19 at 20:26

    Sounds like it's set up this way intentionally. I'd check with whoever controls the permissions on the site. – cchen Jul 18 '19 at 20:32
  • Or it could be a View page... not enough info? – Kevin Jul 18 '19 at 20:40
  • thanks! I was able to delete, but not hide, so sounds like this must be the case. Appreciate the help! – user94559 Jul 19 '19 at 13:30

You can unpublished your page which will be unavailable for everybody which doesn't have the permission to see unpublished content. You can change the option during edition (you should have permission to change this option) or via the administration content page if you want unpublished multiple pages in one time.

You have also the possibility to use the module Rabbit Hole https://www.drupal.org/project/rabbit_hole With this module, you can limited the visibility of your content depending some roles and which behavior you want have (redirection, 403 error, 404 error).

  • would you mind telling me how to do it step by step -- I'm not understanding what you're saying here. I'm on the page i want to hide then click on content on the top of the screen, then what? I'm a WordPress person and I'm trying to figure out Drupal on my own and struggling. – user94559 Jul 18 '19 at 19:41
