Disabling Portfolio Project Pages in Squarespace Version 7.1

Recommended Posts

Hey all - reviving this old thread here.

I've tried all of @tuanphan's code posted here, but nothing seems to work.

Quote

a.grid-item[href*="/draft"] {
    display: none;
}
.item-pagination-link--next[href*="draft"] {
    display: none;
}

It is still displaying the projects in my main portfolio pages, even though they have 'draft' in the URL. I have tried putting 'draft' at the beginning and end of the url, but no change is registering. 

 

Note: I have code in already to change the hover colour of these projects. May that be overriding this new code?

Quote

ul.portfolio-hover-items-list li:nth-child(1) * {
    color: white;
}

I would also like to know when this issue is addressed.
This is really annoying since I often have to prepare project pages but the projects themselves are not made for public yet.

Also the website visitor can see that it is being built "live". 🙄

Does anyone have any workarounds instead of using code? I don't want to pay extra for using code. I'm on the basic plan.

Basic Plan still support basic code (CSS code)

building my first website since Dreamweaver was a thing and ran into this.. Not being able to keep projects hidden until ready is a big glitch in me launching my page. i have some done and could go live but i don't want to seem even more unprofessional with shlocky pages that still have stock footage and incomplete text.  I'm doing this in my spare time so a project could sit there for weeks until i can complete it. That makes me look bad but there doesn't seem to be anything i can do about it. Why would they take away this feature?

 

Looked into using the code but i get a message that i need a premium account to access the advanced features where i assumed i was supposed to put the script? does it go in the page header code injection?

i guess what i could do is write a disclaimer on the top of each incomplete project page

"This page currently under construction. sorry that you have to see it in such a state but Squarespace doesn't offer an option to keep it hidden until its ready"

after reading through the thread again i read deeper into Tuanphan's directions and got it to work. TY Tuanphan.  

Still raises the question of why we have to do this little hack when it should just be a toggle switch on each project.

I'm currently using tuanphan's code both to eliminate under-construction portfolio pages from appearing in the grid and to remove them from pagination. While both work, I do wish some additional features from Squarespace could simply implement turning individual portfolio projects on and off because now— though these links are removed from pagination— there is a gap in the pagination sequence where a user has to return to the grid style portfolio page to continue through the portfolio projects. Functional, but not seamless.

Just wanted to voice my frustration with this too - having to edit projects 'live' looks very unprofessional and is sometimes unrealistic. I don't know about you but I like to take a day or so of tweaking a page before making it live... 

Hoping this gets addressed soon!

Just want to raise this issue again as totally unacceptable for a company that advertises themselves as a portfolio builder. I'm frustrated that hiding portfolio subpages isn't a feature, and that there are no suggested workarounds for creating drafts of portfolio pages. This is a huge disappointment and I would not have renewed with Squarespace had I anticipated this would be an issue.

Agreed.  Not using this platform for ecommerce but for an informational site.  Really don't understand why you don't have an option to disable a project in portfolio page in order to add new products without anyone seeing until ready.  Has to be an easy fix for this without coding.  Really frustrating.

Hi Squarespace,

Are there any updates on this please?

Whilst building my site (which contains a portfolio and one project) the entire site was hidden, so this wasn't an issue. But now I want to add a second project to the same portfolio and make it public with the product launch. This is going to take a few weeks, so obviously don't want it published\visible in the meantime.

It's such a basic feature that should have been there from day one. Two years (and many requests) later, it still isn't an option without resorting to scripting. An enabled toggle on portfolio projects would be such a simple (yet helpful) feature to add.

At the very least, are you able to offer an official workaround for now please?

SquareSpace please get your act together. This thread dates back to 2020 and still no fix. WTF?

Yes. all pagination

Hey @tuanphan - Is there anyway to not have this impact of making it a draft reflected in the URL? The only reason I ask is, yes I want some hid from the front end of the website temporarily, but would like it to still be accessed at the same link and also changing the url over again impact SEO success. Thanks in advance.

Yeah, just wasn't sure if there was a way to keep it as a draft but not impact the url.

You can remove draft, however then you need to share link to portfolio page, we will give new code to remove it from portfolio page
