How to delete a corrupt page which will not render and has not even generated a pageid?

I tried creating a page with HTML macro. Clicked "Save" and in errored out. I can see the page name on the left panel, but since it does not render I am unable to delete it.

When I hover the mouse on the page name on the left panel, I see the URL with the page name but there is no pageid. How do I go about deleting this page?

As you have guessed, you're going to need the page ID in order to kill it.

You didn't flag this with Cloud or Server, but on both, you could try looking through your browser history for the url of the create/edit/landing page.

On server, you could also try going to the url by name (which would then try to go to the one with the page ID, so you'd at least get that, or if you're lucky, it would actually go into edit mode, so you could remove the breaking content)


Thanks Nic. I was able to delete the page based on the URL you provided.

Hi @Paras 

Please check you have either delete page permission in space or space admin permission.

You need delete permission in the space to delete the page.


Thanks Pramodh. I do have the delete privs in the space.
I was able to use the URL that Nic provided above to delete the corrupt pages.
