  • Resolved JamesM99


    Hi all. I manage the WordPress site for my daughter’s school and need some help with archiving old static pages (with layout & pics). Some of the content is no longer relevant but might prove usefull at a later stage, or as a historical resource for the school. Is there any way to hide these pages in some structured way?

    You can change the status of a post or page to ‘private’ ( which will prevent them from showing up on your website while they’re still listed (and can be edited and all that stuff) in the backend.



    Hi, that how I’ve been doing it but was hoping to be able to add old pages and posts to an archive category only visible to contributors and editors.



    Ah, okay. I think there’s not an easy way to achieve that. Meaning I guess this requires some hands-on theme code editing like the ones suggested here (

    Also, you’re intention comes pretty close to running a membership site (with a member-only content area). Maybe that’s a direction worth investigating.



    Perhaps create a page with:
    <?php wp_list_pages( $args ); ?>
