  • One of our users has somehow managed to create and publish a page in MODx that they now can no longer access via the manager, and they need to delete the page.

    Even as admin, I can’t access the page either: clicking on its icon to try to bring up the context menu results in absolutely nothing happening; clicking on the page title to try to bring up the "Page data" page also results in nothing happening.

    Does anybody know if there is any other way that I can try to delete the page, short of manually hacking around the database?

    (And if it turns out that I do need to hack around the database, what data would I need to delete in order to delete this corrupt page (and without causing the rest of the site to topple over!)?)

    Thanks for any help!


    Site info: MODx 0.9.6.3, RHEL 5.5, PHP 5.1.6, MySQL 5.0.77, pdo_mysql: Don’t know, php-pdo RPM (v 5.1.6) is installed, is this the same thing?, browser: have tried various (Firefox, IE, Safari, Opera) on various computers/OS with no luck.

    • Just in case somebody else experiences a similar problem, it turns out that although there didn’t seem to be any way that I could access the page from the page list in the manager, I could use the ’Site » Search’ function to search for the page by ID, and then delete it from there. Whew!
