I deleted sharepoint page which is based on page layout through browser by going siteactions–>managing content and structure–> pages–> selected the page–> delete(by right clicking).
But when I see in the content database still the page is there. Basically I want to delete the content type which I could not delete as it is being used by a page. I am getting “Content type is in use”
Is there one have solution for this. Please let me know.
The page is not actually deleted, but moved to the SharePoint site’s Recycle bin. Delete it from there and you should be good to go.
Big P.S.: do not mess with the content database(s), if you do you are not supported anymore, meaning you can’t call ms support with a (free) service call to fix things. They’ll send the consultant and those don’t come cheap…
