To delete a page type

You delete a page type by displaying it, then selecting Delete from the content drop-down.

However, you cannot delete a page type (and the delete option is not displayed) if:

  • the page type is built-in, or
  • there are pages of the type, or
  • the page type is in use as the target of a look-up field.

You can check if there are pages of the type by displaying the listing. Any listed pages must be removed completely (see Approvals and page versions) or converted to another page type.

You can check if the page type is the target of a look-up field by displaying the page type properties and look under the Usage heading.
