Oops! Restore Your Deleted Pages

Deleted your page by accident? Now you don’t need to e-mail us – you can restore the page yourself. With your wiki’s new Recycle Bin, you can easily find and restore recently deleted pages.

To restore a deleted page, make sure you are logged in as the organizer of your wiki. Go to your wiki and then “Manage Wiki.” Under the “Content” heading on that page, you’ll see the new “Recycle Bin” icon. When you click on it, you will see your recently deleted pages. Select the ones you wish to undelete and click “Restore.”

    I deleted my new page “EcozoneExperts” and am told that this name is not available when I try to recreate it but it’s not in my recycling.

    I deleted it because it had ads on it despite my being a teacher and using it for class.

    I would love some help:)

    I don’t know how I did it, but I deleted my access to my wikispace. I just sent the permission letters home to the students too. How do I become a member of my own space? My pages are also missing. Will I have to get new emails, usernames and passwords for my students?

    Thnak you,

    Caron Heiss

    Hi Michelle,

    The blog post is about a single page on a wiki, not the entire wiki. Deleting a wiki does not free up the name for you to use later. We can either undelete the wiki for you or free up the name for you to use again. If the wiki is undeleted you can request a free upgrade to our K-12 Plus plan.

    Let us know which option you would prefer at help@wikispaces.com

    Hi Merci,

    Was the page deleted in the last 30 days? If you send us a link to your wiki at help@wikispaces.com with the name of the page we can help you get it restored.

    Hi Diane,

    You can undo a page change by going to the page, selecting the History tab, selecting an old version of the page, and selecting the ‘revert to this version’ link. If you need to undo something else on your wiki let us know at help@wikispaces.com

    Where is the empty recycle bin button? If there is none, how long before it automatically empties?
