Move

Overview

The Move function allows users to move one or more files at a time. Only user levels 8, 9, and 10 can move files, and a Level 8 user can only move files to which they are assigned access rights. It is also important to note that moving files and folders will move them on both the staging and production servers. If a page or file has not been published, it will only be moved on staging. If Multi-Target Publish is in affect, the files are moved on any target to which it has been published.

Moving a Single File

A file can be moved from the Pages list view by hovering over the desired file and from the File menu, selecting Move; by selecting the checkbox adjacent to a file and clicking Move in the table header; or by dragging and dropping the file. Note that a file does not have to be checked out to be moved.

Moving a File from the Pages List View

  1. To move a file, do one of the following:
    • From the Pages list view, hover over the desired file row and from the File menu select Move.

Multiple files can be moved at once by selecting the checkboxes found to the left of each file, and then clicking the Move button in the table header.

    • From the Pages list view, select the checkbox in the table header to select all files, and click Move.

Note: If Dependency Manager is turned on, a prompt will appear when moving a file or files indicating how many pages will need to be republished should the move process be completed. To continue, click OK.

Republish Confirmation Modal

Dependency Manager republishes any pages that link to the newly-moved page based on the current version of the pages on the live production server. If changes to the linking pages have been made and saved to the staging server, but not been published to the live site, those changes will still not be published to the live production server until they are manually published by a user. This includes backed up versions that have been manually created.
