Many beginners try and end up with trouble – and an unfinished page or post.
Wordpress by default makes any saved post or page public, and, of course, nothing is as embarrassing as having some crappy looking beginners page or post on your brand new WordPress website. Switching WordPress posts from Status Published to Status Draft is the easy solution here.
Click on the “ Published Edit” text link and open the pulldown menu
Hit the blue UPDATE botton and that’s it, this way you have safed your unfinished work WITHOUT it showing on your front end!!
Once all is done you can change that to Published again.
