Drag and Drop

When you received your training, you were shown how to re-order your navigation through the folder view using a drag 'n' drop method of changing the positioning of your pages and files.

What's not as well known is that you can perform this operation on any asset in the file tree with your mouse.

  1. Select an item in the asset tree and drag and drop it in its new location.
  2. When you do so, this activates the Move/Rename function. If the content has previously be published, please realize that if your My Settings have been configured appropriately Cascade will delete the page from the published location(s) in order to keep Cacade and your server(s) in sync once you click Submit.
  3. Once you've completed the drag and drop move, remember to republish your content:
    1. publish the entire folder representing the asset's new location - this updates the navigation of all the pages sharing that folder.
    2. publish the entire folder representing the asset's old location - all the pages from the old folder need to be updated otherwise the old link will remain.
    3. if you have drop-down menus enabled, your entire site will need to be republished as every single page access the primary menu and the links frome very page will need to be updated.
