Deleting, Moving, or Renaming a File Without Breaking Links

Foxbright has added the ability to move images and files from one category to another. During the moving process, the file URL will be updated to reflect the new category and links to the file within website content will be automatically updated to prevent broken links.

In addition, the system will now provide a warning when linked files are being deleted. To reduce broken links, a list of pages containing a link to the file being deleted will be displayed during the deletion process. The user can find and correct any links prior to deletion.

Moving a File

  1. From the Images/Files menu, choose List Files
  2. Find the file to be moved. Choose Move from the options displayed via the file's gear icon.
  3. Choose the file category from the New Category dropdown as the destination for where the file will be moved.
  4. The New Title field can be used to rename the file during this process if needed.
  5. The New File Name can be used to update the file name part of the file's URL
  6. Click Save to complete the move. The file will be moved and the URL updated and corrected wherever the file may be linked to.

Deleting a File

  2. Find the file to be renamed. Choose Delete from the options displayed via the file's gear icon. Note: Multiple files can be selected to be deleted by clicking the checkbox next to the filename. Each file will still be checked for use on the website.
  3. If references to the file are found on the website, a list of them will be generated and displayed. From the list of references, the pages can be edited to remove or update the locations where the file is referenced.
  4. The file can still be deleted with or without references. Click the checkbox next to the file to confirm deletion as well as the checkbox above the delete button. Note: If a file with references is deleted without corrections to the references, the link will become broken or image removed from the page.
  5. Click the Delete button to remove the file from the system completely.
