  • You can keep Menu Items and Articles in the Trash Manager as long as you like. Don't delete these items unless you are sure that you will not need them again.

  •  Articles in the Trash Manager are not the same as Archived Articles. Articles in the Trash Manager are not available for viewing or editing in the site. Archived Articles may be viewed using the Archive Layouts and may be edited.
