Draft means the post has not been published and remains a draft for you. Here we show you how to change the status of the post

WordPress gives you several draft options so that you can save your work without having to publish it immediately.

This way you can work on a new post/page as much as you want and publish it only when it is ready.

To save a post as a draft, go to your blog’s admin area -> Posts -> Add New. Write your post and when you wish to save your progress, click the Save Draft button.

To save a page as a draft, go to your blog’s admin area -> Pages -> Add New. Enter the content of the new page and click the Save Draft button to save your page as a draft.

If you have already published the post and wish to save it as a draft, then follow the instructions below.

NOTE: when you save a post/page as a Draft, then it wont appear on the web site and remains hidden.

That’s It! Your post will now be saved in draft mode and wont (should not) be visible on the web site anymore. Anyone trying to visit the link will see a 404 error.
