Change a published page folder name


(Tom Murray) #1

What happens when I change the folder name on a page of my existing website then publish?
Does RW create a new page? Or should I log in to the host and change the folder name there first?

Thanks.

When you change the folder name, RW will create that new folder on your host.
RW will NOT delete the old folder, you will need to do that with your ftp app or with the sites file manager.

And if the old has been bookmarked by readers or if there are external links to the page(s) (from other sites) and you don’t want to lose the traffic, you may want to create a forwarder to the new one. (if you need more info just search web for “301 htaccess redirect”
