Need to take website off line for page restructure

Go to solution Solved by creedon,

Hi There,

I am not hugely confident with squarespace.  We are using Brine and it is 7.0 version.


A couple of questions:

1) I need to take my client's website offline temporarily while I shift some pages around (changing the navigation).  Can anyone suggest how I do this?

2)  If the website is live, and I am restructuring within a page, is the best approach to work on a duplicate hidden page then replace the orginial age once the changes have been made?


Best regards,

You can set your site to Private while you do your work. Go to Settings > Site Availability.


I prefer to work with the site publically available but behind scenes in the Not Linked area of Pages. Then when you are ready to release the new version you just move the pages around. This means that for a short period a site visitor might see things changing.
