    After I publish a page or article, if I decide that I don't want it can it be deleted or unpublished.

    Yes, you can set it to Draft or just delete it completely.

    Thanks Kinggomez,

    I am a little confused about the answer though.

    What I'm asking is once I post something and publish it and it's on the internet to be seen by everyone, can it be deleted after that.

    I know I can save it as a draft before I publish it. I just need to know if I can take something off the internet and how do I do that, if I can.

    can it be deleted after that

    Yes but anyone who clicks on a link to that page will get your 404 page instead.

  5. Delete it from your site, and eventually all cached versions will fade away. But it could take a long time.
