Updating Old Pages

When an old page is no longer needed on a website, it is best NOT to delete the page from the server. Instead, remove/update all links to the page, then UPDATE the content on the page to reflect a new message OR place a redirect on the page.

Here is an example of a message that can be placed on the outdated page:

This content is no longer available on the UT Tyler website . Find out more about "department name".

When a page is no longer needed, contact the UT Tyler Web Team prior to deleting the page. The Web Team can place a redirect on the old page. This will prevent broken links from search engines, bookmarks, etc.
