Unpublish on Move/Rename

In the CMS, the process for moving or renaming files ensures that assets that are live on the Internet are deleted under their old names/locations. This feature should drastically reduce the number of broken links on the site that appear as a result of re-organizing site content, as well as eliminating orphan pages and files on the live website.

Setting Preferences

  1. Select the hurricane icon at the far left of the navigation bar. Scroll down to Preferences, and select User.
