SharePoint - Cannot find a page after renaming it

    Question

  • Hi 

    I am new to SharePoint.

    1. I have created a page called "ABC Document" in my SharePoint site.

    2. I have renamed the page to "XYZ Technical Specification"

    3. In the Home page's search bar

        - I tried to look for "XYZ Tehnical Specification" and I cannot find the page

        - If I type in "ABC Document" it comes up with this page "XYZ Technical Specification"

    Can anyone help me resolve this issue please?

    Thanks

    Bab

  • I think you might change the title of page. Even though that, you can not rename page once it is created as this is metadata.

    Other alternative is that, back up page and create new page with new name and restore content from back up farm.

  • Hi Bab,

    Have you created the page in pages library or site pages library?

    For your issue, after you renaming the page to "XYZ Technical Specification", start a full crawl and compare the results.

    Best Regards.

  • Hi,

    If you have Sharepoint Designer check if the pages renamed correctly and ensure that you are able to see the page as XYZ Technical Specification in All Files-> Pages or Site Pages library

    Once checked, Run Incremental Crawl or if Continuous Crawl is enabled you can leave it as is and check the results.

    Let me know if you have any queries

    Many thanks
