[Pro] Strategy to save a page?

I know that we can’t tell Freeway not to publish a certain page and because there isn’t a library of sorts to hold extraneous material, what’s the best way to “save” a page that is no longer needed but will be again in a year?

In my case, I had two pages for a company-sponsored conference. They took some time to build, but the conference is now over. I’d like to use basically the same material next time. Just don’t know how to delete it from the site so that it will no longer show, store it, then pop it back when I want it.

What do you folks do to handle these kinds of situations?

Thanks!

You can select your page and use the Page>Make Master command to make a Master Page from it and then delete the original.

Alternatively you can select the page name from the Site Panel Edit>Copy and then create a new FW doc (scrapbook) and paste that page into the new doc.

I’m constantly working on new pages that won’t be uploaded until some
time in the future, and my solution may be useful for your situation. I
make a special folder and put the unique pages in it. The method is
described here:

I hope this works for you.

But using this method the pages are still uploaded!

Just not easily accessible.

What is the problem if the pages are still uploaded providing that they don’t contain new info. If you change the page name to something unique and create a meta tag, wouldn’t the page be uploaded only once? It would make it easy to “publish” it again when needed. What am I missing with the foregoing?

Thanks for everyone’s input. I like the scrapbook idea best because I can store pages there from all kinds of sites I’ve developed. It’s a lot better than reinventing the wheel and for me will probably be less confusing. Again, thank you all. (And put this on my wishlist for a future upgrade.)
