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.
In this article:
- Browse to the page you want to delete.
- Go to Edit > More, then select the Current page tab.
- 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.
- Select Delete.
- 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:
- Browse to the parent page above the deleted page.
Go to Edit > More, then select the Sub-pages tab. Deleted pages are struck out and have a red Deleted label:
You can leave deleted pages on the Sub-pages tab and, if required, restore them in the future.
Purge deleted pages
- Browse to the parent page of the deleted page.
- Go to Edit > More, then select the Sub-pages tab.
- Select the deleted pages.
- Select Purge in the toolbar.
- 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.
