In GovCMS sites (as with most websites), content administrators will, from time to time need to remove content from their site. There are many cases in which conent may need to be removed, including Events that have passed, Blog articles or News & Media that no longer need to be highlighted on a site, expired job listings and so on.
Archiving content in GovCMS simply unpublishes the content. It does not delete the content. As such you can restore the content if needed.
The outcome of archiving any content is that it is no longer visible to site visitors. Should a site visitor navigate directly to the page that was previously available, they would receive an 'Access denied' message, as demonstrated in the next exercise.
