  • Fixed a bug that caused children of a deleted page to not be deleted if they had a different type

Upgrade considerations

Orphaned pages may need deleting

This release fixes a bug with page deletion introduced in 0.8, where deleting a page with child pages will result in those child pages being left behind in the database (unless the child pages are of the same type as the parent). This may cause errors later on when creating new pages in the same position. To identify and delete these orphaned pages, it is recommended that you run the following command (from the project root) after upgrading to 0.8.6:

$ ./manage.py fixtree

This will output a list of any orphaned pages found, and request confirmation before deleting them.

Since this now makes fixtree an interactive command, a ./manage.py fixtree --noinput option has been added to restore the previous non-interactive behaviour. With this option enabled, deleting orphaned pages is always skipped.
