    Saving and Publishing Pages

    There are three different options for saving and publishing pages. The options vary depending on whether you’re still in the process of editing the page or have completed your edits and wish to publish your changes.

    Option 1: Save and Preview

    The Save and preview button allows you to save your changes and preview it before publishing the changes to the live site. The Preview feature shows you how the page will look once it is published. This Save and preview feature only saves your page and does not publish your contents to the live site.

    Option 2: Save

    The Save button is used for saving the page without publishing the changes to the live site. The Save feature is especially useful if you are working on changes over a period of time as you can save your changes frequently to prevent losing any data.

    Option 3: Save and Publish

    The Save and publish button is used to publish a previously saved page to the live website or to publish a page without previewing it. The Save and publish feature will save and publish the page to your live website.
