Dear Sky V. King,

Thank you for responding. My course is published. I was hoping to use the Pages Area as a location to place documents for students to view. When I however scroll over the Pages link, it indicates disable, and not visible to students.

Hi jlw0072@uah.edu Welcome to the Canvas Community!

It is most likely that you have not enabled your Pages content area in the course navigation menu. This guide will help How do I manage Course Navigation links? 

Essentially, you just....

  • Go to Settings,
  • Click on the Navigation tab,
  • Drag pages from the bottom area to the top area.

I would like to add that areas like Pages, Files etc. can get very busy and challenging for your students to locate content in. I would recommend organizing the content you want your students to view and interact with in Modules.

jlw0072@uah.edu‌, Sky and Kelley have given you great guidance! I'd only add that the crossed-out eye continues to display on any navigation links that do not contain content—so even if you've enabled the Pages course navigation link in Settings, if you haven't created any pages there yet, the crossed-out eye will persist until you add content.
