How to reorder pages and move pages

Use these instructions to change the order in which subpages are listed or move a page or file from one location on the intranet to another. Through a simple drag-and-drop pop-up box you can reorder pages. And with just a few clicks and zero page editing you can move a page or file to a new location.

When you move a page all the subpages and attached files move with it. This means you can move entire sections in one fell swoop.

Moving or reordering pages will not break links to those pages. Each page on your ThoughtFarmer intranet is created with a unique and permanent URL that doesn't change when you move it or change page order (or change a page's title).

Click "Reorder navigation" to change page order

To reorder pages you must be on the page above the set of pages you want to reorder. This is called the "parent" page on which all the subpages live as "sibling" pages.

If you don't see the "Reorder navigation" option, click "More Actions" below the "Add" button on the right, and the "Reorder navigation" option will appear.
  • Step 1: Navigate to the parent page of the pages you wish to reorder. (Don't go into edit mode.)
  • Step 2: Click "Reorder navigation" in the upper right-hand section of a page. This brings up the "Reorder navigation" pop-up box.

  • Step 3a: Drag and drop pages in the list to manually change the order in which they display. OR
  • Step 3b: Click "Sort by" and choose your sort type (alphabetical or by date created) and sort order (A-Z or Z-A, and newest or oldest) from the dropdown menu.
  • Step 4: Click "Save changes." The page will reload with the subpages displayed in your newly selected order.

Click "Move" to change the location of a page

If you don't see the "Move" option, click "More Actions" below the "Add" button on the right, and the "Move" option will appear.
  • Step 1: Navigate to the page you want to move.
  • Step 2: Click "Move" in the upper right-hand section of the page. This brings up the "Move page" pop-up box.

  • Step 3: Click on any page listed in the pop-up to move your page there.
    • Click the triangle to the left of a page to show or hide its subpages.
  • Step 4: Click "Save changes." The page will reload in it's new location and you will see the updated "breadcrumb trail" at the top of the page.
You can also move a page while in edit mode. Click "Move" at the top of the edit page beside the breadcrumb trail, and then continue with Step 3 above.

When you move a page, the page inherits its security settings from its new parent page. So after moving a page, check its security settings to see if you need to change them.
