Is there any way to hide a page?

Is it possible to show a page only to Administrator or registered user?
Is there any way to hide a page such as other wiki?
Is there any way to hide a page from unregistared user?

While making the wiki, it may not good to show a page to other people if not ready at all.
Is there any way to do that?

There is not because wikis are supposed to be open. 22px-Logo.svg.pngTyA_userpage_image.png Badge-VSTF.svg 06:07, February 26, 2012 (UTC)

Adding on what was said above. In the spirit of a public wiki, anyone should be able to edit it in good faith, thus "hiding" a page is not possible. However, to answer the "possibility" and alternatives:
  1. You could use CSS to hide the contents or certain sections of a page. There are admin-only CSS that affect how admins see things. Keep in mind, display:none will not work on people that disable styles.
  2. If you want incubation pages that are not yet ready to be put out there, make edits in the sandbox or the userspace.
However, you should have a thorough read as to what is "allowed" under the Wikia terms to be safe. --BryghtShadow 08:32, February 26, 2012 (UTC)
