How do I delete an invalid title

Apr 12, 2009 at 1:11 AM
I found out the hard way that a * isn't valid in the title, after entering a tile with a *, I can't do anything with it, including getting to the page where I could delete it. How do I delete that title from my xml database?

The post is one of the XML files in the App_Data\posts folder.  You can physically delete the XML file or make any modifications to it.

After deleting/modifying the XML file, BE will probably still show the post (or the old content of the post) since it will have been cached in memory and not aware the XML file was modified.  Re-starting your blog will force BE to clear its cache and re-read the XML files in the App_Data\posts folder.  You can re-start the blog by making any modification to the Web.config file (add a space, etc).

Thanks! That was the first pace I looked, but for some reason the windows 'find in file' didn't find it.

That should fix it.
