I had a site page named "Go, Blue Devils" under "Nostalgia" for our football team with a LOT of info on it. I tried to rename the page through "Edit Link" to "1963 AAA Football..." which seemed to work. Then I tried to create a new site page named "Go, Blue Devils" again. I got an error message informing me that there was another page with that name open and maybe another admin was working on it. I clicked okay and both the "Go, Blue Devils!" and "1963 AAA Football" disappeared. Any hope of recovery? Please!?

You would have to select a new name. The system recognizes that you are changing the name of that page, but, to be sure that no links are going to a page that no longer exists, it keeps that name reserved for that page still. Even a slight change to the page name should make it work for you.

Thank you. I will select a new page name going forward. My problem is that the original page, including all its contents, and the attempted renamed page, with the same contents, are both now gone. The original page took at least a couple of days of hard labor to construct and I would rather not have to redo it. Is there a way to recover the original page (Nostalgia > Go, Blue Devils) including its contents? There were probably 15 same page links in the contents, but no different page links to/from the page. Thank you, again.

You're welcome.

Scott, you're not helping me. I need to recover the page that I accidently lost 2 days ago now (including all its contents). Please respond to the recovery issue described in my two previous posts.

I will inquire with the programmer, although I do not hold much hope on this one if the page is gone. But, I will ask and we will see what they say. (BTW - Sorry for the misunderstanding and my misguided replies for not fulling comprehending the issue.)

For what it's worth, last week I created a new page, began filling in some text and pictures, and decided along the way that I needed to rename the page. So I saved it, edited the link to change the name, and... the system crashed. 503 error, and then "Down For Scheduled Maintenance"

When I was able to get back in, the new page was not there. So, mumbling to myself about starting over, I created a new page with the original name. Yup. Nice new empty page. But wait... Maybe... Deleted that page. Created a new page with the updated name... Bingo! New page with original contents and new name. Saved it and exited before something else happened.

I suspect this was a fluke, and wouldn't work again if I tried it. And very likely wouldn't work if any significant time had elapsed. Didn't hurt to try though.

Lessons learned:
(1) Stuff happens
(2) There's often another option if you think about it.
(3) When the system crashes, all bets are off
(4) It's better to be lucky than smart.

Scott and John, when I went to "Edit Site Pages" to try John's fix, lo and behold my missing renamed site page was there with its contents! Thank you both a thousand times. The contents are extensive and would have taken a couple of days to duplicate.

And John, it's a comfort to know I wasn't the only one with this problem.

Would you please have one of your programmers restore a "lost" site page for me?
The name of the site page is
45-Year Class Reunion
I do not know when the site page was no longer listed on the Home page navigation bar.
If it is listed among my site pages, I cannot locate it.
I am stumped as to the cause. It could be my fault.
Any assistance that you may provide, please do!

Just a thought that perhaps the page was accidentally inactivated. May be worth checking under Admin Functions > Edit Site Pages and see if the page is listed. If so, hover over the page and click on "Edit Link," then click on "Active" to restore the page.

Update: I see the 45-Year Class Reunion page has been restored!

Don't know about your domain status but your page is HERE without the domain name.

I reconnected the domain for you.

There's still something that not quite right. When I click on "View Site" here in the forums, it generates a URL with an embedded space in the middle.

Sunday, August 6, 2017 at 12:59 PM - Response #20

That's not my website.

My old website is

The new is

That's not correct
