Any page with a unix name beginning with an underscore is a hidden page in a wikidot site.
Any page with a unix name beginning with an underscore is a hidden page in a wikidot site, and these pages are usually used for administration, system or maintenance purposes within a wikidot site's structure.
An example is a category's live template page, which looks something like category:_template.
- By default, these pages do not appear in ListPages module output
- By default, they are not counted as part of the %%total%% in CountPages modules
- They are not auto-numbered, even in an auto-numbered category
- You can not create a hidden page using the NewPage module
The NewPage module has been designed to strip out any underscores that are entered into it's text field, to prevent new users from accidentally creating a hidden page. Therefore to create a hidden page you must use your browser's address bar and enter the intended URL in there. If the hidden page does not exist, a link will appear on the page that will allow you to create it.
