Make a page private

How to make a page private

Use these instructions to make a page completely private. Only the page owner can make a page private. When you make a page private, no other users can see it, no matter what the security settings are. When you make a page private, all of its sub-pages become private too. 

When you view one of your private pages, a Private label appears across the top of the page header. Every page you set as private shows up on your profile page under the list of Private Pages

Do be aware that your intranet administrator has special powers, and so is able to view private pages. So don't put anything on a private page that you wouldn't want your intranet administrator to see!

  4. Continue editing or click Save.
Now your page will appear with a Private label across the top of the page header. Your page will not show in navigation, search results or recent activity for other users. However, you will see it in all those areas with the word Private beside the title.

Private/public security inheritance

If you add a subpage to a private page, it will automatically be private because it inherits the security settings of its parent page. If a page is private because of this security inheritance, if it is moved underneath a public page, it will inherit the settings of the page above it, and automatically become public.

If a page is public, and is inheriting the security settings of its parent page, if it is moved underneath a private page, it will become private as well.
