Error when deleting folder as editor

Wednesday 06 September 2017 11:06:31 am - 2 replies


I have a problem when deleting a folder in ez Platform with the standard Editor user role.

When deleting I get a message "'%contentName%' could not be deleted", and the listing of subitems in the folders parent starts failing. This breaks the display of my site since it cannot find the location belonging to the deleted folder.

To rebuild I have to log in as admin, and restore the item from trash, and delete as admin.

Anyone else have the same problem?


The Editor role has content/All functions/no limitations.

Hello Tore,

We recommend against using the 'Trash' feature as it has years worth of bug reports and fixes associated with it.

If your going to remove content, just remove it and avoid using the trash.

I hope this helps!

How can I delete without using the trash?
