I am not able to delete a page which is referenced in other pages

Hello All,

I am not able to delete a page which is referenced in other pages, and when that reference is removed manually I am able to delete the pages. I have not faced this issue any time prior to this incident and this is happening in our client UAT environment not replicable in dev or in my local env.

Please share your views or experiences if anyone of you have faced similar kind of issues any time.

Thanks in advance,

Tuhin

Typically a system will not let you delete content that is referenced from elsewhere. It's integrity of the system. This should be mentioned in the docs located here:

Hello smacdonald2008,

I understand, but ideally shouldn't it show us a warning message that "This page is referenced in other pages of your website. Are you sure you want to delete the page?" I am getting this message in our local and dev environment.

But in UAT neither I am getting this message nor the page is getting deleted.

 

Thanks

Are you getting a log message when attempting to delete a page?
