Weird Thing I Did . . Hopefully Not an Issue

I had deleted two articles a couple of weeks ago but today noticed I could still access them by url, though they were no longer published.  I had a change of heart about what I wanted to do with them so I just hit publish again and now they are back on my account like they had never been deleted.   

I am afraid when the editors look at them they'll seem like new articles again, and duplicates.  Which they are not. They're the same ones as before, with the same url.

Any problems here?

No problem there :)

I assume, you've only put the articles in your "recycle bin". To permanently delete an article, they must be cleared from the recycle bin. Otherwise, there would be a very strange bug "at work" :-P

Wizzley is great about saving our material for us. You should be fine.

I'm sure must be right.  I noticed the robots.txt file was blocking it for google, but with bing I was able to go straight to the page.  But, as you say, if it was only in my recycle bin that should have been possible for me if as I was signed into my account here.  Does that makes sense???

Thanks for your help!

Yes, that's right: you can only see/access "deleted" pages when you're the owner of the page (logged in).

Up late again Ryan - and wanting a caffeine hit - you'll never sleep at this rate!
