Upon visiting your site for the first time, you will notice that the site contains out-of-box default content (the Home page, the “How to use this website” page, the “Sample Page 1” page, the “Sample Page 1.1” page, and the “Sample Page 1.2” page). Feel free to modify the existing content to work with what you have envisioned for the site.

Tip: Use a temporary page

Unpublishing a page will hide it from visitors and search engines. If you want to make changes to an existing page and preview it before making it  visible to visitors and search engines, you can create a temporary page to develop and preview your changes. Once you're happy with the changes you can copy your changes to the original page and delete the temporary page.

Revert page changes:

Updates to the content on a page are saved as new revisions by default. Recent revisions are stored and available in the event you need to revert to an earlier version of the page. To save on database storage, only the five most recent revisions are stored; the older revisions are removed automatically.

To revert to an earlier version of a page, go to "Edit" and click on the "Revisions" tab. 

Select a recent version, and click the "Revert" button.

Delete a page:
