Published pages moved by non-publishers become 'orphaned' on published site

When a non-publisher moves (or renames) a published page, it is relocated on author, but these changes are not reproduced on the published site.

Published August 17, 2016

The Issue

Non-publishers can move (or rename) pages in the author environment, and this is normal behavior, but since they cannot re-activate the page, their changes are not reproduced on the published website. In a sense, that page becomes oprhaned on the publisher. Intervention is needed to complete the move.


There is no workaround.

If this happens on your site, please let us know.
