Move pages

When you move a page, every sub-page and file below it moves with the topmost page. Moving a page does not rename existing links in your body content. Therefore, it's best to check for broken links after moving a page.
  1. Browse to the page you wish to move.
  2. Go to Edit > More, and select the Current page tab.
  3. In the Manage page box, select Move this page. The URL of the page you're moving is at the top of the screen.
  4. In the New URL box, enter the URL of the target parent page you want to move your page under. Omit – for example, to move a page under the IT Services home page enter:


    Alternatively, use the page picker to browse to and select the new location. You now see the relative URL in the New URL box.

  5. To automatically redirect visitors to the New URL, select the Forward requests for checkbox. Doing so inserts a forwarding page at the old location and prevents visitors seeing a ‘page not found’ error message.
  6. Choose how search engines index the moved pages by selecting an option from the Allow search engines drop-down list:

    • Keep current settings
    • Hide renamed pages in searches
    • Show renamed pages in searches

    Your choice applies to all pages and files under the current page.

  7. Choose the permissions for the moved pages by selecting an option from the Permissions drop-down list – note that your choice applies to all the pages and files you're moving:

    • Keep current settings
    • Remove view permissions from renamed pages (contributor, edit and admin permissions are not affected)
  8. Select Move page.
