We are having issues with deleted pages/assets still being indexed and able to be found through search. Once we find the orphaned deleted pages, how do we delete them?

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Just to clarify, are you referring to pages being picked up within Cascade Server's internal searching, or search results referencing files on your web server (eg Google search)?

    If the later, it sounds like the asset may have been deleted from Cascade Server and not the available Destination(s). What you can do is create a temporary asset with the same name and location within Cascade server and then Delete and Un-publish it. This should remove it from both Cascade Server and the available Destination(s).

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!

    Hi Ryan,

    Thanks for the response. Yes, this was helpful. I just have one more question. If the asset was in a folder structure and the folder structure has also been deleted, would the whole folder structure need to be recreated as well to then delete and un-publish it?

    Thanks again for your help,
    Elizabeth

    Not a problem at all, Elizabeth, I am glad to hear the information I provided was helpful.

    If the asset was in a folder structure and the folder structure has also been deleted, would the whole folder structure need to be recreated as well to then delete and un-publish it?

    In this case, you would need to re-create the folder as well as the asset in order to delete and un-publish the asset from the Destination server.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!
