Hiding A Page From the Left Navigation and/or Search

This is an article explaining how to hide a page from the left navigation and search. This is usually used when you create a new page, but you are not ready for it to go live on Chapman.edu. 

Step 1: Select the page you’re going to update and click “Edit.”

Note: Make sure that the page you want to edit is highlighted in the site content menu.

Step 2: The editing pop-up will display basic information about your page in the first section. The last two options you will see are “Hide from Navigation” and “Hide from Search.”
