We have a client who through a previous designer had a site designed and developed in wordpress. The previous designer downloaded an already developed wordpress theme and is using it. The site is not strictly a blog site. It is a website that does have a blog function, but the main site is a catalog site. They were originally supposed to be able to do all their updates themselves through the dashboard, but have found they do not want to and do not have the time. So they’ve handed it over to my company since the previous designer has signed off on the project.
They would like a new page added with content they have supplied. This is easy to do and I have done it, however they do not want it “live” until they can review it. But they also do not want to have to sign into their admin to view the page through the dashboard. So…I’m at a loss. I cannot publish the page because they don’t want it on the web, but they can’t get to it without using the dashboard and logging in–which they don’t want to do. The closest solution I have come up with is to publish the page, but set it so that it does not show up in any navigation or links on the site. The only way to get to it is to give them the permalink. The problem is, the page is still technically on the web and it is possible it could still be found through a google search. Is there a way around this? A way to view a not published page before it goes live without having to log into wordpress and navigate through the dashboard to find it? Maybe a plug in?
The site is http://www.accoxford.com if anyone is interested. The theme that the previous designer used is called Private Lawyer.
Sorry if this has been covered, or if there is an obvious answer I”m not seeing. I’m new to this so I’m still learning. Thanks
