I am working on an Enterprisewiki site collection inside SP 2013, and currently when contributor users edit the wiki page properties by going to "Page Option >> Edit Properties" , then will find the following link, which sound strange :-

enter image description here

so can anyone advice what is the purpose of this link and how i can remove it ?


This message will show when we edit the properties of a page no matter which library / wikis we upload it to, it seems to be by design.

If you have any webpart on the page, once you click on it, it will give you control to perform maintenance on the webpart i.e. Close, Reset. Delete etc. enter image description here

To remove that i think you need to Customized the EditForm.aspx.

  • i do not have any web part on the wiki pages , except a web part to handle the redirect at the home page. so if there is not any web part on the wiki age , so the links to reset,delete,etc is meaningless is this correct ? – john Gu Apr 29 '15 at 12:24

    i just put the half of the page, if you dont have any webpart on the page then after clicking on the link you will get this text " There are currently no Web Parts associated with any Web Part Zones on this page. Web Parts added to the page outside of a Web Part Zone will not appear in this list." – Waqas Sarwar MVP Apr 29 '15 at 12:30

    that's true, if user know about the url then he can directly go their. i think this is ok, you cant control everything.if you compeletly remove this page from the farm then it will impact on all other non wiki pages. – Waqas Sarwar MVP Apr 29 '15 at 12:50

    if you check the permission levels you will see if add webpart or delete webpart allowed or not. – Waqas Sarwar MVP Apr 29 '15 at 13:33
