While in Content > Pages, hover over a folder or section to see the file options available. Keep in mind that the options described on this page are available to administrators only.
Dependency ScanLink to this section
Scanning a folder syncs the files within the folder with the system database. This includes information about the files such as tags, access settings, etc. If dependency manager is active for the site, a scan also replaces any ordinary links to files on staging with dependency tags. To run a scan, select "Scan" from the File menu and confirm by clicking OK.
It's recommended that no users edit files within a folder while you scan it, to prevent errors or discrepancies.
Dependency RevertLink to this section
Revert converts all dependency tags in pages and files within the folder to root-relative links or absolute links, depending on the site settings. It is useful when preparing to copy a folder, or when doing a find and replace concerning URLs. We recommend not editing or moving pages during the process, to ensure the revert catches every file in the folder.
Revert does not restore pages and files to previously saved or published states; it is not a version revert.
- Clone: Creates a clone of the site.
RenameLink to this section
To rename a folder, select "Rename" from the File menu and type the new file name into the field. Click away or press Enter to save the file name, or hit Esc to cancel.
Because file URLs in OU Campus are created from the file's location in the site structure, renaming a folder changes the published URL of every file within that folder.
Moving folders can be done in several different ways. One way is to select "Move" from the File menu. You can also select the checkbox to the left of the folder name and click "Move" in the table header.
In either instance, after you click "Move," use the file chooser box to find where you want to move the folder to.
You can also drag-and-drop a folder to move it. Either drag a folder from the file tree in your left-hand sidebar into Pages, or from one location in Pages to another.
Moving a folder also moves every file inside the folder. Because file URLs in OU Campus are created from the file's location in the site structure, moving a folder changes the published URL of every file within that folder.
Just like moving a folder, copy a folder by selecting "Copy" from the File menu or by checking the box to the left of the folder name and clicking "Copy" in the blue header bar. Then choose a location for the folder copy to be placed via the file chooser box.
You can also copy a folder via drag-and-drop by pressing Control (PC) or Option (Mac) while dragging a folder to the desired location in the file structure. A green plus sign on your cursor indicates that you are copying a folder, rather than moving it.
DeleteLink to this section
Deleting a folder permanently deletes both the folder and all content inside it, with no way to restore them.
Therefore, we highly recommend recycling any files inside a folder before you delete the folder. Deleting a folder from staging removes it from production as well.
To delete a folder, select "Delete" from the File menu, or check the box to the left of the folder name and click "Delete" in the blue header bar. You must confirm the action by typing "delete" in the field and clicking the "Delete" button.
Managing Multiple FoldersLink to this section
You can select more than one folder at a time by using the checkboxes to the left of the folders. With two or more folders selected, you can move, copy, delete, or publish those folders. Drag and drop also works when multiple folders are selected, but they can only be moved to one location.
To select or deselect all files and folders in the view, click the square in the left-hand corner of the file list.
