Disabling Portfolio Project Pages in Squarespace Version 7.1

Recommended Posts

I've run into a bit of an issue with hiding individual collection pages in Squarespace 7.1. Normally, by clicking on the settings for a page, you are able to enable or disable that page. However with the new system of "Portfolio Collections" that page disable option does not exist for individual portfolio project pages. I may be mistaken, but as far as I can tell, there is no way to hide these pages (screenshots attached for reference). 

This is incredibly troubling as you cannot create drafts of projects, nor if you are duplicating other projects, they will be live with duplicate content until you fix it. 

I was thinking possibly that you could move collection pages to other collection pages(in the way you can move products from shop to shop), so in essence you could pre-build the portfolio page on a hidden portfolio collection and move it to the live portfolio collection, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do this either.

Any advice on how I could make hidden pages in the existing Portfolio Collection system or is this just a fault in the new version?

I am experiencing the exact same problem and for the same reasons. I dislike how the content being actively worked on for my site is live the whole time. Just looks sloppy on my part even though there isn't anything I can do about it other than consider alternative templates or platforms.

Another issue I have that is related to this problem is there doesn't appear to be a way to password protect individual pages within the portfolio folder either. This would be useful so that I could lock down content for specific pages that might have projects under NDA (among other reasons).

Hi, I had the same problem. There are no settings currently to be able to do this which is fairly annoying. There is however a workaround so you can have a live portfolio page. On the portfolio you want to do this:

Go to Portfolio Settings -> Advanced -> Add the following code to the page header injection.

  a[href="/portfolio/page-url"] { display: none; }

The page URL can be found by right clicking and inspect on the portfolio tile and looking at the code. Note it does not include your website url.

Hope this helps.

Yes. It's a bit arbitrary why portfolio's in 7.1 can't be password protected yet pages can. A entirely plausible usage-case is you have a body of work, not just a single project, that requires it be hidden.

This ought to be addressed.

I think the ideal would be to make it possible to move projects among different portfolios. That way:

  1. I can create a portfolio (X) that holds my "template" for projects
  2. I can hide Portfolio X so that it's not visible to the public, only to admins
  3. I can create projects in Portfolio X and then move them to a live portfolio when ready.

As it stands, looks like I'll have to use @mforny 's solution...but I'll have to create a different template in each portfolio.
