Before deleting a webpage, it’s best to make sure that no other pages on the IUP site are linked to it. If they are, and the page is deleted, the link will become dead. You can find all pages that have quicklinks to your page by performing a link search.
If you want to create new web pages, repurposing an old page is preferable to deleting it and making a new one, as a page can have its content and title changed, and even be moved to a new folder if needed. That way, people following a bookmarked link to the old page will still end up in the general area they expect, instead of receiving a “page not found” error.
Pages for which you are a maintainer can be edited and updated normally to remove or relink the links. For pages outside of your area, you can either send a message with details to that area’s web maintainer(s) or to the Web Team. See the list of web maintainers (login required).
