With the Recycle Bin feature, any elements or pages you delete are stored in the recycle bin for 30 days. At the end of the thirty days the, items are permanently deleted. To access the recycle bin, select Recycle Bin from the Site menu.
Note: The Recycle Bin Feature must be enabled by the site administrator.
Here you see several deleted items in the recycle bin.
- The Type column displays the type of the deleted item, for example, a text element, an image element, or a page.
- The Name column lists the name of the element.
- The Deleted From column identifies from which page (for elements) or parent page (for pages) the item or page was deleted.
- The Remaining column lets you see how many days you have to left to restore the deleted item before it is automatically cleared from the recycle bin and gone forever.
- The restore button in the last column lets you restore the deleted element or page.
In the preceding example, notice that several items were deleted from the About Us page. These were placed in the recycle bin when the About Us page was deleted. Restoring the About Us page also restores each of the elements that were deleted from it. You also have the option to restore any of the individual elements to a different page, not just to the page where it was deleted. For example, you may not want to restore the About Us page, but you may want to restore the About Us Slideshow image element to the home page of the site. You can do that simply by clicking the restore button for the item.
Then click the Home page to select it. Clicking the Restore button moves the About Us Slideshow from the recycle bin and restores it to the main region of the home page of the site. After it is restored, you can go to the Home page and move the element to which ever region you want.
