I have been successful so far with the page history features of SilverStripe (2.4.5) and rollback, etc., as long as the page is still there -- but how do I roll back an accidental delete?

Someone accidentally deleted a page with over a 35 child pages. It's actually those child pages that I need. You can't access them from the left-nav, of course, because the parent isn't there.

p.s. if you search the forums for "roll back", even surrounded by quotes, you get over 2,000 results -- including pages with only "roll" or "back". There doesn't seem to be a way to do a phrase search. :-(

Any ideas?

I have to assign out the work to rewrite all these pages tomorrow. :-( Love to find a quick fix before then if possible.

Did you try selecting 'All pages, including deleted' in the 'show' dropdown (top left of the cms) and restore from there?

Someone did the exact same thing here!

I can see all of them in "SiteTree_versions" -- can I try and cobble a query together to copy them back to "SiteTree" and/or "SiteTree_Live"?

It's possible but you really need to know what you're doing if you want perform the sql queries yourself!

Still - deleted pages should be visible/restorable once you select 'All pages including deleted' (or your language's equivalent) from the topleft dropdown in the CMS. Did you check that?

Ah, I see them now. I thought I tried that last night, but I must have been looking in the wrong place.

Thanks a mint!
