Putting a resource into draft mode

From Clicklaw Wikibooks

This is a help page for contributors or users.

You may want to hide a resource from public view temporarily, if for example it is out of date and no longer legally accurate, but you are working on an update. By putting it into draft mode, you do not have to re-enter all the information about it. Simply edit it when it becomes ready for public view again.

  1. Log in as a Clicklaw contributor.
  2. Click Edit resources on the contributor homepage or in the left menu of the contributor site.

  6. You will see a dialogue box asking you to send notes to Clicklaw Editors. Explain why the resource will be saved as draft, for example the law has changed but the resource has not been updated yet, then click Unpublish. This helps Clicklaw Editors stay better connected to what is happening with your resources. If you change your mind, you could still click Cancel and your resource will remain visible on Clicklaw.
