To report an issue with using components, please contact the IT Service Desk:

 

Before Deleting a Component:

  • Is that component referenced elsewhere in your pages?
  • Is that component being referenced by another unit on a different page you don't edit?
  • Does the component have to be deleted or can you update the content and/or image?

Note: If a component that is referenced is deleted, pages with a reference to it will now be missing content. Before deleting a referenced component, the CMS will provide a warning message to inform you of its referenced status.
