Working with published pages

The Published Pages page displays a listing of all published pages. If there are permissions set, then the Permissions column contains the keyword Restricted. Users can set permissions as part of publishing a page.

The Published Pages page has all actions available in the toolbar above the list. You can search, sort, and filter to affect which pages are shown. To display more pages that match the search, click More below the list. All possible actions are available from the Actions menu. Actions that are only available for either single or multiple select are enabled when they can be used.

These actions are available in the Actions menu:

Delete Deletes the selected pages.

If the page is configured as a mandatory or default page in settings, you must manually edit that setting and remove the page.

Export Exports the selected pages as a zip file.
Permissions > Edit Permissions Displays the Page Permissions dialog where you can remove, add, and edit permissions.
Permissions > Copy Permissions Copies all permissions for the selected page to the clipboard.
Permissions > Apply Copied Permissions Adds the permissions from the clipboard and updates the values for existing groups and users without removing existing entries.
Permissions > Replace Copied PermissionsClears any existing permissions and adds the permissions from the clipboard.
Permissions > Clear Permissions Removes all permissions for the selected pages, enabling all users to view the pages.
More > Publish to existing page Overwrites the target page with content, title, and description of the selected page. Use this action to work on a new version of a page and overwrite the earlier version when the new page is done. Users can then use the previous working version of the page while the new version is being developed.

All content except permissions and user connections are updated with this action.

  • Duplicate Page
  • Cancel
  • Add Page
More > Take Ownership Makes you the owner of the page.
More > Change Ownership Opens the Change Owner dialog where you can search and select a new owner for the page.

Owners have permission to change a page if they have permission to publish pages.

More > Open in Catalog Closes the current view and opens the page in the page detail view of the Page Catalog. When you close the page detail view, the page container is displayed.
Export All Exports all published pages.

This action includes all published pages including those not yet retrieved by the client.

Import Imports a zip file with published pages.

The Import Published Pages dialog has Overwrite existing files and Preserve existing files options. The default is to overwrite existing files.


Pages exported from the page menu in Homepages can be imported as published pages if they are first added to a zip file.

For more information, see "Publishing pages."


Some actions are enabled only if the page has permissions or if permissions are available from the clipboard. Other actions are enabled only for single select.
