Help me ! Strategies for managing Orphaned content?


Hi all,

I am running into an interesting situation on my Epi projects.  The scenario is simple: A page is added, blocks are added locally to the page, and then the page is later deleted.  What I am finding is that the blocks still exist in the system even though their parent page is removed.  I can pull up their edit URL directly if I know the Content ID, but cannot delete the block from this interface.

How do you properly managed orphaned blocks on your projects?  Should I create a scheduled task that purges unused blocks periodically?  Is there a community plugin that will give me a view into unused blocks?

Thanks you!

The "Remove Unrelated Content Assets" scheduled job will remove blocks related to deleted content.

Hi Clemmie,

There is an inbuild Schedule Job for it named "Remove Unrelated Content Assets", it will do the trick.
