Description

Copy the following code and paste it in a page in syntax XWiki 2.1.

The responsibility to protect the access to this script is entirely yours.

Then, to use, follow the instructions in the form displayed by the script. Note that the script is not handling children pages and if you delete a page with children you're gonna either have to delete manually the children or leave some orphaned pages.

This script allows to programmatically delete a page whose URL is not accessible (since the regular delete is an action, the URL to the page needs to be accessible in order to delete the page).
The script is using regular authorization mechanism, so the page will be deleted only if the current user has the "delete" right on the page in question. Use at your own risk!
