Simple link + shortcut issue


Dear all,

I've faced with weird behavior: I can't remove shortcut if page has simple address.
It happens from time to time.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create page and add simple address.2. Add shortcut "Shortcut to page in EPiServer CMS" and select some page (in my case it is the root page)
3. Remove shortcut and try to publish page.

On the last step I get the following error:

The only one way to remove shortcut in this case, to change or remove simple address first.

Have you ever faced with such issue?

Which Episerver version? I am unable to reproduce this in Epi 9.0. 

However I don't think is related to the shortcut at all.

The error message says that the simple address "some-address" is already in use on the page with id=6094. Have you actually checked page 6094 to see if the same simple address is used there?
That would obviously cause an error as two pages cannot share the same simple address.

Launch Excel 2013 spreadsheet in which you want to add links. For instance, we have included a spreadsheet containing; Name, Marks, and Links field .

Arild Henrichsen the issue reproduces both on our website (CMS version is 7.17.0) and sample alloy site (version 7.5.394.2). And cannot be reproduced on 8.11.0.

The simple address is not duplicated when the error appears.

The steps are:

1. Create page and add simple address.

2. Add shortcut "Shortcut to page in EPiServer CMS" and select some page (in my case it is the root page).

3. Publish the page.

4. Remove shortcut (select "No shortcut") and try to publish page - get an error then.
