Hi. I've read old forum posts and documentation on the difference between draft status vs. private visibility of pages (not asking about posts), yet I'm still not clear as to which would be best in my scenario:
1. I've downloaded a theme with around one hundred sample pages, which were automatically published when I installed the theme.
2. I've chosen to customize, for example, one home page of five samples, and I would like to hide from everyone but me as administrator the remaining four sample pages.
3. I don't want to trash all the unused samples in case in future I would like to redesign my site.
***Should I use "draft" or "private" on all unused pages so that no one else can view them? (I'm trying to avoid a cumbersome process such as copying the code from every single unused sample page into a word processing document to save for later, and then trashing all these unused pages.)
