Delete a page or collection

It is not possible to delete your Dashboard or Profile pages but all other pages can be deleted, as can collections.

If a page is deleted, it is removed from all collections it is contained in.

If a collection is deleted, the pages it contains are not deleted and will remain available in any other collections they below to, or as individual pages if they are not part of a collection.

Delete a page

Open the page that you want to delete from the Pages and Collections location or from within the specific collection.

Menu - pages and collections

You can see both collections (1) and pages (2) in the image below. You can easily identify a collection as it shows the number of pages contained within it. Click on the title to open the item - for a page, open the page itself, or click on the collection that contains it.

  3. If the page still has information that you might find useful in the future, you can export it to a zip or leap2a file.
  4. Click Yes to permanently delete the page, or no to return to the previous page.
