Part two of the discussion on ghosted and unghosted pages...

How can you tell if a page is ghosted or unghosted? Quite simply – you can’t.

There is no way to determine the state of your page.  Unfortunately, this functionality simply didn’t make its way into the product.  In an ideal world, you would never need to know if a page is ghosted or not.  However, we don’t live in an ideal world. 

Is it possible to “reset” an unghosted page to its original ghosted state?  No.

This ties into the previous answer.  Straight out of the box, there is no way to return a page to its original ghosted state. 

Help…  I need to reset a page!!  Surely there are options?!

Check out the GhostHunter Web Part which is included in the Web Part Toolkit.  The GhostHunter Web Part was specifically designed to address the limitations of WSS with respect to ghosted and unghosted pages.

Happy ghost hunting!! :)
