V8 website builder - How to delete a page?

on 3/24/14, 8:29 AM 10,545 views

Is page deletion still just yet-to-be-developed functionality? or do I have a bug?

Is there a way to delete a page from the website, using the website builder?

There must be a way to delete content by diving into the file system and database, but . . . Where can I find documentation about how website pages are stored?

Hello everybody,

Yes, it's arrived... 

You can now delete a page (commit 905dd42)

So it will be available in the next saas version !

Have a good day !


Not seeing how to implement this in a self hosted version. Where is this dialog found?

It's not included in v8 ! That is in saas-6 and so in v9 community (& enterprise) But you can probably try to cherry pick the code !

To View, Edit, and Delete Odoo's Website Pages from the Backend

  1. Log in to the backend as an Administrator.
  2. Make sure you have Technical Features enabled.
  3. Click Settings.
  4. Scroll down to Technical.
  5. Click User Interface to expand.
  6. Click Views.
  7. On the top-right, click the down-arrow next to open the advanced Filter.
  8. Click Advanced Search.
  9. Under Advanced Search scroll down, and click on Whether this view is a web page template (complete).
  10. Click the Apply button.

You can then select the pages you want to delete and delete them - thanks xmo-odoo

Have done so. So having done that, the pages can be edited from the backend exactly where? (It does seem now that I can "edit" the page entry by typing its name under "views" (Line 6 in your list). There is also now the Drop Down of "delete" available, but not the dialog listed in the "Delete Page" reference one answer above. (will vote yes here)

I found that it is possible to "delete" the page and the opportunity to declare it in a menu item via the Views Dialog. Separately It is possible to redirect menu items to "non-existing" pages. Following the link as Administrator gives the opportunity to create the page. I do need to find where in the backend I just changed the "link" (can also be done in the main Menu editor in Website for sure)..

This is a missing feature as of today.

For now is only possible to remove the menu which is like remove the page, but the page still there.

Hello, same here. Can't delete a page I created. Also in the menu, when I try to search for existing page it doesn't work. Thanks for the link Alexandre. I will follow it closely.
