HI!

could Yola make a new feature where you can drop down on the publish menue and selec publish page,
clicking on the ordinary btn would update your site.

OK Alex,

You've stumped me!

Why do you want to simply publish a single page?

Come on tell :) Please!

Hi Alex

That is an interesting idea, and definitely a first for me. I am not sure how many people would need this option, so the cost of developing it might not be justified.

My suggestion would be that you drag the pages that you don't want to display out of your menu and then put them back in your menu when you want to put the pages live.

Alternatively you could create a test site with just the one page and publish that.

I didn't realize that the page you wanted to "hide" was your homepage. Even if you take it out of the menu, your index (home) page will always open when someone goes to your site. The browser needs an index page in order to find a site.

You could go through a complicated process whereby you:

1) Save your homepage under a different name using "save as"
2) Create a blank, temporary homepage
3) Save your real homepage as "index" when it is finished.

Not sure if this would work for you. However, even if we did implement your suggestion you would always have to publish your index page in order to have a working site.

Its because you are working on a unplanned site you run in to these problems - i have the same problem sometimes but on my next site i hope to have created a plan of action to avoid this kind of thing.

You should really finish a page then link it when its ready to be used. Start small and pan outwards - thats what i have learned.

The other option on the same idea would be somehow to mark a single page not to be published. But again if the page is not linked it doesnt matter if a work in progress page is published or not becasue no one will see it anyway.
