The page you are editing is currently “checked out”. After editing the page, click on “Check in to Share Draft” so permitted viewers can see your update. Saving the update does not publish it. The new content is still a draft. You can keep working on it or submit it for approval.

Content approval is the default workflow. After saving your update, click on Submit for Approval button. The site approver will publish the page by approving it. However, most web sites’ worflow has been changed to skip the content approval process. In those sites, you do not need to submit the update for approval.  You should see the Publish button on the Page Editing Toolbar in place of the Submit for Approval button.

Click on the Publish button to publish the new content.
