  • Published: Only the pages that are published are shown in the list. Published pages include only originally published pages.

  • Unpublished: Only the unpublished pages are shown in the list. Any recent changes that are saved but not published will not be live. Hence, their current status will be shown as “Unpublished.”

  • Draft: Only the pages being created for the first time are considered in the draft. It would be best if you didn’t confuse it with unpublished pages. Only a published page can have its status changed to Unpublished.
