CMS: Moving Pages, Files or Folders (Assets)


Instructions on how to move pages, files or folders in non-Blink CMS websites.

Critical Concepts

Blink users: do not move your pages. Email your request to Workplace Technology Services.

General CMS users: follow the instructions below.

Steps to Take

Moving a page or folder

  1. Navigate to the asset you want to move
  2. Click on the asset to open it in the right pane
  3. On the white horizontal navigation at the top right of the page, Click More and then choose Move from the drop-down
  4. The "Move page" screen will pop-up:
    Sreenshot: Move page with new folder.
  5. Click the blue box under New Folder.
  6. Browse to the folder you want to move the page to.
    Screenshot: Choose a folder option, Recent or Browse folders
  7. Click Choose
  8. Make sure Unpublish Content is checked
  9. Click Move
  10. The page is now moved within the CMS. It will be unpublished from the old location, but not automatically published in the new location. Publish the folder into which you moved the page

Breaking links

Unlike the delete page function, the move page function does not provide a list of internal links affected by the move. That is because internal links will automatically update in the CMS, but need to be published for the change to happen on the live site. Publish the relationships of the new page.

External links

Note: When you move a page or folder, the CMS does not list all the pages outside of that site that may be linked to it. By moving the content, it is possible to break links throughout campus websites. See the Managing Your CMS Site page for links to broken link checkers.
