Before deleting a webpage or a downloadable file, it’s best to make sure that no other pages on the IUP site are linked to it. If they are, and the page or file 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.
Similarly, replacing an existing file means that you can avoid having to update any links that lead to that file.
Note: This should be done on both the page layout and the main content block on that page.
Content blocks for which you are a maintainer can be edited and updated normally to remove or relink the links. Files such as PDFs can be replaced following this procedure. For pages outside of your area, you can either send a message with details to that area’s web maintainer(s) or to the Digital Team. See the list of web maintainers (login required).
