How do I move a page?

Note: When you move a page, every sub-page and file beneath moves with the parent page. Moving a page will not rename existing links in your body content. Therefore, it's best to check for broken links after carrying out the move. This is one of the reasons why it's best to use relative links on your site.
  1. Browse to the page you wish to move.
  2. Go to Edit > More > Current page tab.
  3. In the Manage page box, select the link Move this page. You'll see the URL of the page you are moving at the top of the screen.
  4. In the New URL field, enter the URL where you want to move the page to. The URL must be relative to http://www2.warwick.ac.uk For example, to move a page to sit beneath the IT Services Intranet home page, you would enter the following in the New URL field:
    /services/its/intranet
    Alternatively, use the page picker Page picker tool to browse to and select the new location. You'll now see the relative URL inserted for you in the New URL text box.
  5. You now have the option to leave a forwarding page behind that points to the new location. A forwarding page automatically redirects people who visit the old URL, or sub-pages, to the new URL. To do so, select the checkbox Forward requests for
  6. Specify whether or not the page you're moving should be included in search results by choosing the appropriate option from the Allow search engines drop-down menu. Your choice also applies to any sub-pages or files beneath the current page. For more information, see the FAQ on how search engines find pages.
  7. Specify whether the view permissions should remain at the current settings, or be removed, by choosing the appropriate option from the Permissions drop-down menu. Your choice also applies to any sub-pages or files beneath the current page. For more information see the FAQ on editing page permissions.
  8. Select the Move page button.
