## What is Stealth on a Subpage, and how is it different from Hide?

The information below explains what the Stealth icon which appears on subpages does.

Section stealthing has been added to subpage to allow subpage creators
to be able to make a section on a subpage not visible to normal enrolled
course users, yet the activities contained within that section available
to those users.

User interface
--------------

Subpage creators (course team members) will find the new subpage icon just
below the normal hide/show 'eye' icon when editing is turned on. Hovering over
this icon displays the words 'Stealth/Un-stealth' indicating the action
when clicked. For subpage creators a stealthed section will display all text
within the section in grey, unstealthing brings the text back to normal colour.

For students, once a section is stealthed that section will no longer appear
(in exactly the same way as if the section were hidden with the hide/show
icon). However a steathed section's activities are still viewable if a link
is provided, where as if the section is hidden then the activities within
are not available to students.

While it is possible to both hide and stealth a section, it is not
recomended as it may be confusing to another course editor as to whether
the section is really hidden or should be just stealthed.From: https://github.com/moodleou/moodle-mod_subpage/blob/master/internaldoc/functionality.stealth.txt
