With this plug-in you can delete a page, regardless of the state (e.g. draft, waiting for release) of it. The original MS delete function is unfortunately not available if the page is in workflow. This plug-in deletes always all language variants.
Because the plug-in is available even another author has locked the page, which the MS shows by the message “Page is already being edited”, please be careful.
The page will be deleted, even there are references to this page. This can be references from other pages or self references.
Deleting a page is the only possibility to get a page out of the workflow (draft by another author, waiting for release, waiting for correction), when the author don’t need the page anymore. From support reasons I quite often wanted to delete the page at all, what the MS did not offer, at least until MS 9.
Location in SmartTree
You found the plug-in at every page in the SmartTree page menu.
How it works
First you need to confirm that you want to delete the page. This plug-in echos the page ID, headline and the content class for you to check, if it’s the correct page.
The window will be deleted automatically after you click the button Delete page. Please have in mind that the SmartTree is not updated. If you know how to do it, please give me a hint. I will try to add this feature.
This plug-in can be installed using the combined setup routine for all jRQL API based plug-ins. Follow the instruction in this blog to download the installer and configure the plug-ins you want.
For API developers
The functionality is provided with the method Page > delete(true). Page is one of the main classes of the jRQL API. For further information, please browse the category editing pages.
