Delete pages

Deleting a page in SiteBuilder is a two-step process. The first step, deleting the page, is reversible – you can restore a deleted page. The second step, purging the page from SiteBuilder, cannot be undone. We don't recommend purging pages unless you're absolutely sure you will not need those pages again.

Note: when you delete a page you also delete every sub-page beneath, including files uploaded to those pages.

Delete pages

  1. Browse to the page you want to delete.
  2. Go to Edit > More, then select the Current page tab.
  3. Under the Manage page section, select Delete this page. A pop-up informs you that you're about to delete the current page and tells you how many sub-pages, files and forwarding pages you're about to delete.
  4. Select Delete.
  5. On the confirmation screen, select the link to return to the parent page.

Review deleted pages

Visitors cannot view deleted pages in a browser. If you have edit or admin permissions for the parent page above the deleted page, you can find the deleted page as follows:

  1. Browse to the parent page above the deleted page.
  2. Go to Edit > More, then select the Sub-pages tab. Deleted pages are struck out and have a red Deleted label:

    Deleted page on the Sub-pages tab

    You can leave deleted pages on the Sub-pages tab and, if required, restore them in the future.

Purge deleted pages

Important: Purging a deleted page permanently removes it from SiteBuilder. It's not possible to recover purged pages so be absolutely sure you want to do this before proceeding.
  1. Browse to the parent page of the deleted page.
  2. Go to Edit > More, then select the Sub-pages tab.
  3. Select the deleted pages.
  4. Select Purge in the toolbar.
    Confirm purge popup
  5. In the Confirmation pop-up, you see a summary of the page and sub-pages you are about to purge, along with the page contacts for these sub-pages. If you're sure you want to permanently delete the page, select Purge.
