Restore trashed page from API


Recommended Posts


I have a feeling I'm missing an easy thing here (again...). If I trash a page from API with :


Is there a simple way to restore it if needed ? I can do it in back-end, but I'd like to do it through API with something like


 but this doesn't exit :( 

So if you can give me a little help on that, I'd appreciate. Thanks in advance !

As always in this community, a quick, straight to the point and perfect answer. Many thanks to you @kongondo

Sorry for missing it in the docs. I promise I searched for it but I was stuck in the $page part of the API and didn't see the restore()... My bad. Just to mention, I typed 'restore' in the search box (top left), but the API linked in your post above didn't appear in the results :( 

Anyway, the answer was quite simple (just as I thought, in the PW 'philosophy') and I'm happy with that. Thanks again !

There's no reason to feel sorry, we're a helpful bunch here :)

On a sidenote: you can try the "PW custom Google search engine" I've configured some time ago: https://cse.google.com/cse/publicurl?cx=013706179141317928628:dendm4c3gpq


I have used the title of this forum thread ("Restore trashed page from API") and the first result in this very thread here, and the second one is the API reference page for trash - at the bottom you'll see "related" API links, one of them being "restore". I have bookmarked this custom search so I can simply type "PW", hit enter, and search across a variety of PW-sites/resources.

edit: kongondo was faster :-)

Great! I didnt know that this exist :)

Yeah. I've had it in my signature for ages (so, you see, we are not so clever :P) . I can't remember who created this particular CSE though. I also have it bookmarked in my bookmarks bar for easy access.
