How do I unpublish a post?

Posts on Medium cannot be reverted back to draft status.

To create a new draft from an existing post:

  1. Select all and copy your post. 
  2. Paste it into a new draft.
  3. Delete your published post. 


An alternative way to hide a post from public view is to set it as unlisted. Please note that posts that have been unlisted can still be accessed by everyone who has the link.
