Can't delete page and other web items

stocktkr 5 years ago in Website (larimer.org) updated by Dave Seabeck 5 years ago 3

In the process of learning how to create/edit web pages, I have created a few items (test pages) which I cannot now delete.  I deleted them in the Departments > IT site map, but they are still in my "Your Content" screen.  When I try deleting them in the "Your Content" screen, it won't allow me to do it.

Thanks for the feedback Ken,

The links you saw and deleted in the sitemap were just the menu links. That menu gets built on the fly when content is created. To delete a page, you can click the link in the 'Your Content' section, Click 'Edit' and then at the bottom you should see a Delete button.


Let me know if you see that, and if you can click it.


Cheers,

Gregg

Hi Gregg -


Thanks for checking on this so quickly.  Yes - I tried deleting the pages using the method you described (Your Content > Edit > Delete).  However, it gives me an error message (sorry - should've mentioned that in my original post).  The message is "Menu link title field is required", and that field (at the bottom of the page under Page Settings > Menu settings) is highlighted in red.This morning, I tried something I should've tried last night, which is to just enter a dummy title in that field - and it worked.  So it's all good.  I'll make a note of that workaround when I document how to delete items.


Thanks again -


Ken
