This means a published page. This symbol is often customized so it could be a bit different, depending on the pagetype you are on.
"Shortcut type" is set to "Shortcut to another content item" on the same website. This means that the visitor is redirected when the page's name is clicked.
"Shortcut type" is set to "Fetch content from another content item". This means that content is retrieved from another content item on the same website.
"Shortcut type" is set to "Shortcut to page on another website". This means that content is retrieved from the specified address/external link.
Means that this page contains a shortcut which is not linked anywhere. It only displays the text, and is used to create a heading without link in a menu.
A container page used for storing other pages. Container/Folder is not visible on the website.
This icon you will only see if you are using the project feature of Episerver. It means that the page is currently published.
This icon is also a part of the project feature of Episerver. It is a "No access rights"-icon, and means that you do not have the rights to publish this item, or that the specific item version does not exist anymore.
The page you are on has never been published, and is still a draft.
This means that the page is scheduled to be published, and that is has not been published before. Page is still not available for visitors.
This page's expiration date has passed, and the page is therefor not available for visitors.
Page status is set to "Ready to publish".
Page status is set to "Rejected". Will happen if a publisher rejects the changes of a "Ready to publish"-page.
Page status is set to "Previously published". Means that one or more versions of the page that were published before the latest published version.
A page that has been locked for editing for the logged in user.
A page that is currently being edited by another user.
If you are using Content Approvals in Episerver, this is a symbol you should know the meaning of. It means that the page is currently In review and must be reviewed and approved before it can be published
These are the out-of-the-box symbols Episerver provides, and they are highly customizable. With a big page tree, you should ask your developer to help you with getting custom symbols for different page types. It will help you with finding the page that you want. Here is an crazy example of what could be done.
