Moving or renaming assets

IMPORTANT NOTE: When you move a file or folder, the CMS does not list all the pages that may be linked to it. By moving the page or folder, it is possible to break links throughout campus websites. You can check to see which pages contain a link to a page you are about to move by using the Google Search Appliance (GSA).

Find Pages Linking to a Page You Want to Move

  1. Go to the campus search (such as on the UC Davis home page).
  2. Type "link: http://YOURPAGEURL"
  3. Select Go.
  4. This will return a list of all pages indexed in the GSA that are linking to that page.

  1. If the page or folder has already been published, it is critical that you unpublish it first before you move it (see Unpublish).
  2. Select the folder or file you wish to move or rename.
  3. Select (check) the Move /Rename tab.
  4. Edit the System Name and/or select the Parent Folder icon and select the new parent directory.
  5. Click Confirm once you have made your folder selection.
