Adding/Editing Pages - Publishing Options

The Publish area in the upper right of the page editing screen has a variety of useful tools:

Publishing Options

Save Draft

If your page is brand new, you’ll see the Save Draft button. This saves your page in the administration area and allows you to come back to it at a later date. It will appear in your full list of pages denoted as a Draft.


The Preview button allows you to see what your page will look like before you publish. It will open a new tab or window (depending on your browser’s configuration) and display your content within the UMaine template. Simply close the new tab or window to exit the preview and return to the editing screen.


To back-date a page or schedule a page to be published at a certain date/time, go to the date/time area under Publish (denoted by the small gray calendar icon) and select Edit, then set the date and time of your choice:

Changing the Publish Date

Pages with dates set in the past will publish immediately but will reflect the past date/time. Pages with dates in the future are scheduled to publish automatically at that date/time.

Deleting a Page

To move a page to the trash, click the red “Move to Trash” link. You can recover pages moved to the trash by going to Edit Pages, then selecting “Trash” from the list of links in the upper right.
