Can I Hide My Published Profile While I Make Changes to It?

Absolutely. When you're logged in and viewing your dashboard, select Manage Program Profile from the list of options on the left. To the right you'll see the option to Hide your profile. You can continue to make changes to your profile while it's hidden. 

Don't forget to Unhide (using the same button) when you're finished!
