Deleting a page in RedDot

  1. To delete the actual page (content mostly taken from U of M Reddot Manual):
  2. Delete the Page
    1. In the SmartEdit view go to the page you wish to delete.
    2. Click on the red “Open Page” arrow. You will now see “You are editing the page [your page title] with page ID [your page number]” along the top as well as a menu bar.
    3. In the menu bar, select “Actions” and then select “Delete Page”
    4. You may get a dialog box stating “Page [your page title] is connected to X links. Are you sure you wish to delete the page?” If so, you will have the options of “yes,” “show details,” and “no.” The “show details” option will give you a list of all pages that are linking to the page you wish to delete. If you are able to edit these pages, you may wish to remove those links before you delete the pages and/or note them down for removal in future. This is also where you will have the option to send an automated email to the last editors of the pages linking to the one you are deleting so that they may update their pages accordingly.
    5. Once the page is deleted, you should see a “You are not authorized for this page” message. This is good! This means your page has successfully been relocated to the recycle bin. (Only Admins have access to the recycle bin.)
  3. Delete the dynamic link (only do this after you have deleted the page!):
    1. In the SmartEdit view, go to the folder which linked to the page you have deleted. Open it. You should see the dynamic link there for your deleted page.
    2. Click the red dot beside the dynamic link for your deleted page. This will take you to the Edit Link Element screen.
    3. Click “Delete Dynamic Link” (You may have to scroll down.)
    4. It will ask you to confirm you wish to delete the link. Once you have done so, you will be taken back to the folder you were previously in and the dynamic link will be gone.
  4. Clear your Tasks
    1. Click on HomePage in Reddot and clear any tasks.
  5. Publish the Folder
    1. in the SmartEdit view, go to the folder which linked to the page you deleted. Open it.
    2. Under Actions, click on Publish page, and make sure you click on "Publish all following pages"
  6. Publish the Root Folder
    1. Under Actions, click on Publish page, and make sure you click on "Publish all following pages"

Interro-01.gif that does not sound like it would cancel anything. And, can just anyone email this? Can I email to cancel Tom's Red Dot account? User:Ttenbergen 18:24, 4 October 2018 (CDT)
