When you activate a page, you are publishing it to the public Web server.
- When an Author activates a page, a notification will be sent to the Approver for the unit to alert them that a page is ready to be published.
- When an Approver activates a page, the page is published to the Web server.
Pages you create in the CMS Authoring Environment are NOT visible to the public until you activate them!
To activate a page in the Site Admin Console:
- In the left-side Navigation pane, click to highlight the parent page (the root) of the page you want to activate.
- From within the right-hand Details pane, you'll see the child pages listed. Click on the page title to select, then right-click and select Activate.
Note, there is no dialog box to confirm the change.
If you activate a page in error, repeat the steps above, but instead, select the option to "Deactivate".
Or, alternately, from within the right-hand Details pane, you may click on the page title to select the page and then click the Activate button.
