Access Overview

There are settings that affect the visibility of individual Posts or Pages which are explained as part of the section on how to create posts and pages.  You can temporarily restrict access by putting up a Under Construction or Maintenance Mode page.

The settings that effect access to the site as a whole are described here.  These site visibility settings are accessed from your site dashboard under Settings > Reading at the bottom of the page.

 

These Site Visibility options are ordered from most visible, “Allow search engines to index this site”, to least visible, “Visible only to administrators of this site”.
