Simple how-to: Deleting a SharePoint 2013 Web Site Page

This post is written with the specific example in mind of deleting a page from a SharePoint Enterprise Wiki setup. However, the steps also apply to any other Sharepoint instance where you would want to delete a page. 

In a SharePoint 2013 Enterprise wiki you can easily add and edit wiki pages that appear on the left hand side-bar. Deleting a page is less intuitive and seems to be different than previous versions of SharePoint.

After a bit of poking around, here is how I found the delete a page option:

  1. Click the ‘Cog‘ icon on the top right hand side of your browser to: Manage Settings.
  2. Select the Site Settings option.
  3. On the Site Settings page, look for the Site Administration section
  4. In the Site Administration section there will be a Content and Structure link. Click it.
  5. You’ll now see an interface to manage the content of your Wiki. Click on the Pages link on the left hand navigation bar
  6. You will see a list of pages to manage in the right hand content area.
  7. Select the checkbox beside the name of the page that you want to delete
  8. Then in the options menu on top of the right hand content area, select the Actions drop-down
  9. Here you will see the option to Delete. Click it now to remove your page or pages.
