Canvas - Known Issue - Students Cannot See Published Pages

Published pages in Canvas are occasionally not showing up for students or in student view.


This issue appears to affect Canvas content pages at random. It is fairly uncommon but has been reported at UW-Madison and other institutions that use Canvas.

For more information, visit the Canvas Community:


Instructure is aware of this ongoing issue.


If students are unable to see a page, first check that:

  • The page is published.
  • The module containing the page is published.
  • There aren't any restrictions on the page.
  • The page is not included in a MasteryPath.

If the above criteria are met, then the page may be experiencing this issue. The only known workaround is to create and publish a new page to replace the malfunctioning page.

Contact the DoIT Help Desk for additional assistance.
