What is Archiving?
Archiving articles is a means to unpublish articles while retaining the ability to view them as a menu item. When an article is changed to Archive status its status is also changed to 'Not Published'. These articles can not be viewed anywhere on the site except through an Archive Layout type menu item. Articles can easily be toggled between Archive and Unarchive status. Archiving is a very useful feature for organizing past newsletters, press releases, meeting minutes or any other collection of past articles.
Archived articles appear in gray in the Article Manager list with "Archived" appearing in brackets beside the title. They cannot be edited while in Archive status and the option to publish or designate as a front page article are grayed-out as well.
How to change an article to Archived status
To change an article to archived, navigate to Website > Article Manager. This will display a list of all of your articles. Place a check in the checkbox to the left of the title of any article that you would like to Archive.
Once you have selected every article that you wish to archive, click the Archive button at the top of the page.
Your articles are now archived. The titles will appear in gray.
To easily search for your archived articles, select 'Archived' from the '-Select State-' drop down menu at the top right side of the page.
To unarchive an article, simply place a check in the checkbox beside the article you wish to unarchive and click the Unarchive button.
