Problem on My Page with a '&' in the page name.....

    I was adding a new page to 'My Page' last night and created a page with a name that had a '&' in the title. It allowed me into the editor and added content to it, but when I published the changes and then tried to click on the link from My Homepage, it takes me to a blank page. I since then created another page with the same content, but no '&' in the name and it works fine.

    Can you remove the '&' from the page name or delete that page all together? Or give me a hint on how I can delete that page?

    Ed,

    There is a "delete" option available when you are on the page you want to delete. Just click the "Delete page" link while you are on the page.

    A few hints / items for everyone:

    1) We suggest you only use alphanumeric characters in your page names (only letters and numbers, no ' $ * & etc.

    2) The editor works GREAT for copying content from one page to another. For example, go to any of your pages (or any page on the internet for that matter) and select / copy all the content. Log into your page editor and simply paste the content. It should all show up exactly the same.

    Thats the problem, when I click on the Link to go to the page with the '&' in the name, I don't even get the buttons to Edit the Page or Delete the Page.
