Implementation Notes

When a page is deleted, the page and all files on it are moved into the archive. A page is never permanently deleted; it will remain in the archive until it is restored (POST:archive/pages/{pageid}/restore). While a page is in the archive, it cannot be modified.

Use GET:archive/pages to retrieve a list of pages currently in the archive.
