If a page needs to be deleted, you run into a circular issue, although easily fixed. Please follow these proper steps when deleting a page on your Tendenci website so you don't run into 404 errors. Please keep in mind that these are SEO best practices. 

Example Solution:

1) Rename the “slug” from /blah/ to /blah2/

Example: The point is to avoid a name conflict. The legacy page actually shouldn’t need to be renamed. You could add “-archive” or however you wish.

2) Delete the page.

*Understand that deleting a page is really a “soft delete” meaning status_detail=inactive and status=0

3) Use /redirect/ module to redirect from /blah2/ to your preferred page. 

Example: https://yourwebsite.com/redirects

For further guidance on the redirects module, please read our help file on How to Use the Tendenci Redirects Module.
