SharePoint (Insider): Publishing Pages

Last updated

Publishing pages are simple web pages that exist within a SharePoint site that you can add text, formatting, images, and web parts to using familiar MS Word-like buttons. Publishing pages can be edited and published for view separately so that content is made “live” as the author decides. Also, publishing pages are automatically versioned so that an author can restore previously edited pages.
