Using only part of a template

What’s the recommended flow for publishing the sections of the template I’m ready to use, while retaining the other sections for later?

I’ve purchased a template, but I’m not ready to use all the sections in it just yet (eg., the blog section of my site isn’t ready). I’d like to publish without the blog sections, but keep them around somewhere so that I can add them later.

You can mark pages as ‘draft’ pages. When you publish the site, they will not be published.

Or, you could add the following:

<meta name="robots" content="noindex"> 

to the head of your pages that you don’t want discoverable. This will prevent search engines from indexing them; hence hiding them from public view.
