Why can't I delete these


#1

Ok so I have two issues with the CMS.

  1. I have a collection called 'Pages' and not matter what I try I can not delete it. It's not being used in any part of my site, it was created for me to test a few things.

  1. There is a 'Clients' collection with a field names 'Review' in lain text, I get the following error when I try to delete it. I have even deleted everything on any pages that would be anything to do with this so I really can't figure it out.

Any and all help would be appreciated.

Cheers!

Remove all references used on the templates for that field first.

As far as I can see I have deleted pretty much everything to do with these fields and collections, I have gone as far as to delete so much that I have to recreate the pages again.

Did you see sometime I missed?

Here is what you're missing:

aha! Damn I did miss something!

Well, after deleting that I went back and checked all the pages once more, Alas, still getting the same error(s)


#6

Are you getting an error that says "Path not found"?


#7

Nope, just the errors in the OP. Very strange!

I'm going through page by page and deleting ever single dynamic content thing I can find.

Hi @Kia thank you so much for posting this! After deleting those collection items there were still some bindings which needed to be cleared.

​I just pushed a force refresh on your site and you should now be able to delete that collection after refreshing the Designer.

​You can push a force refresh on your end in a site by pressing CMD + S or CTRL + S on Windows and refreshing the Designer.

Thanks @Waldo was it something I was doing? Or Webflow needing some coffee to wake up?

YAY! It worked, thanks dude!

@Kia the collection bindings just needed a force refresh, we're working on ways to simplify this and make it more apparent and will definitely post an update once our updates in this area are live. :bow: If you ever run into anything or are having trouble deleting a binding, please send me an email right away to support@webflow.com, I'm here to help.
