List all pages that link to a page

Post by Chris_t » Sat Aug 17, 2019 7:08 pm

I hope this isn't a daft and obvious question but I can't seem to find an answer.

Is there a way to list all the pages that link to a particular page?

I'm sorry, there is no option for this.

Thanks Pablo. That's interesting. Am I right in thinking that if you change the name of a page any pages that link to it automatically link to the new page name?

So WB15 is certainly aware of which pages link to another page then. It's a shame that can't be taken further.

I want to do a new version of a page while the old one exists. This is to show a client the new page before it goes live. Then I would want to replace the existing page with the new one. As soon as I rename the old page in order to replace it with the new one all my links to it are lost. I am struggling to think of a way around this at the moment.

Here's one way.

Make up the new page and offer it up to your client as a test page. If he likes it, you clone the existing page (to keep it - just in case), then delete everything on that page. On the new page, do a CTRL-A to select everything, then copy and paste it to the existing (now blank) page.

All sorted.

Alan
