I am trying to change a link title under my ‘Most Popular’ link listing on the main page. I renamed it with ‘and’ because I know we can't enter the ampersand. I tried publishing this in both the experienced editor and the content editor, but it didn’t work.
Answer: The ampersand cannot be added to the Link file name, but can be added to the actual Link Title that appears on the page. See how to create and edit the Most Popular Links.
I have a page I need to edit. I know where it resides, but I want to find other pages that hold links to this page. How can I do that?

In the Content Editor, it can be found under the "Navigate" tab, and by selecting the "Links" icon.
I have a weird error that reads “you cannot edit this page because you do not have write access.” What does it mean?
Two common reasons this alert message will display:
- Your permissions do not allow you to edit that page.
- If you recently submitted the page for Approval, it cannot be edited again until it has been approved or rejected by a Content Approver.
I have an alert to publish but it won't work. It shows as enabled under Agency Alerts. Why doesn’t it show?
Answer: The Agency Alert field may not be configured or "connected" to your Agency Alert item. Please contact the CI Helpdesk to correct the configuration.
I have deleted an agency alert that was posted, though it is not on the page I can no longer see the template to insert a new one.
The Agency alert can be toggled on or off by checking or un-checking the "Enable" box on the alert itself, and then publishing it - it should never be deleted.
If the Alert item was deleted, please contact CI Helpdesk to request a new Alert item be added to your website.
I want to do a mock up of a web page to share with a division director but I don't want to publish the page to the website and make it public yet. I need the url of the page to email it to the division director to review, but how do i generate one without publishing?
Answer: If the individual you are showing the page to does not have a Sitecore account, you can publish the page, but don't create any links to it from other pages yet, so it would only be viewable by those who have the specific URL or search for it using the Agency Search.
If the material is too sensitive to risk public access before approval, your best bet is screen shotting the page.
There’s a link on my page that goes somewhere, but I don’t know where because I cannot see the URL when editing the page.
Answer: You can view the path of a folder, page, image, document file by Previewing the page in Sitecore and hovering over the link, and noting the URL that appears in the bottom left of your browser window.
When I logged into Sitecore, my screen doesn’t seem to have the folder tree/map icon to navigate. I have the Experience Editor ribbon, but without the lower part of the bar below it for navigation.
Answer: From the Experience Editor ribbon, select the "View" tab, and make sure the "Navigation Bar" box is checked. That will show the navigation bar. Once selected, it will always show up the next time you log into Sitecore unless you manually uncheck it.
When I make a change to an item on the homepage from the Content Editor, I get an error saying the page cannot render.
Answer: When you get this message, it means you are selecting the item and viewing that component in Preview Mode, when it should be from your Agency title folder. When making any changes to items from the _resources > Agency Landing Page folder, be sure to select the Agency Title (i.e. DESPP) to Preview them with all components.
