  6. The Document name is the name that will be the document's URL and within the content tree; this is not the page title. Make sure to use a short, clear, and unique name. Kentico will auto adjust to lower case letters and insert hyphens when the space bar is hit. Do not combine words together to avoid hyphens; this is not search engine friendly (please see the SEO documentation here).

Delete a page

Typically only Publishers (including primary) can delete documents. You can also contact for help with recovering deleted documents.

To delete a document, first click on the document you want to delete. You can either click on the Delete button in the content management toolbar or right click the document and select Delete from the dropdown menu.

You will be given two options on what to do with the deleted document. We recommend the second option of displaying an alternate pages when visitors try to access a deleted document; this option also gives publishers/editors the ability to restore the document.

Note: Do NOT click on the X. The document will be permanently deleted, and will never be restored.

Changing document order

The order documents appear in on the live site navigation is determined by the order they're in within the Content Navigation Tree. Moving documents within the same parent document will not break hyperlinks. If you move the document out of the level, then it will break any existing hyperlinks. Example: If I want "bizforms" to appear above "kentico" on the live site, then I can click and drag it above "kentico." If I move it to be at the same level as "documentation" or "calendar" then I will break the hyperlink.

Kentico Content Tree levels

To move a document within the same level of the content tree:

  1. Click the page you want to relocate in the content tree and click the Down or Up button in the document action toolbar. You'll see that your page has been moved.
