Can I move a blog from the index page to another page while keeping the content?

I have an idex page with a blog. Now I want to move the blog to another page, but when I copy the page (using the option 'save page as') the content of the blog is gone in the new page. I had the idea to copy the page and make that copy (without content) my new index page and rename my current index page (with the blog content). This would work for any other page, but it is not possible to rename an index page. My conclusion so far is that is impossible to move a blog from the index page to another page. Do others know if this is correct, or are there clever workarounds that I haven't thought of? I hope so, I would hate to lose all my blog content...

(btw, the Yola tutoria states that blog pages do not have the function 'save page as' but for some reason this works in my account)

Hello Hetty

Presuming that you speak of your website "Hetty ontdekt", I've gone into your Yola Sitebuilder and was able to completely copy your index page. I named it "test" (it's not in your navigation), and it looks like it has all the content of your index page.

Kan je alsjeblieft nakijken of je de nieuwe pagina "test" in jouw Sitebuilder kan openen? Als het lukt, verzoek maar om de pagina een anderen naam te geven.

You can also overwrite an existing page by using the page name when saving. You will then be asked if you wish to overwrite the existing page.

Let me know how that goes. Ik spreek ook een beetje Nederlands. ;-)

Hello Stefan,

Dankjewel voor je bericht! :)

I already removed the blog from my index-page before you created the test-page, so I don't know if it would have worked with a blog on the page. My attempts showed that the blog was empty in de copied page. But thank you for giving it a try.

Kind regards,
Hetty

Hello Hetty

Alright, I see. Do you still need assistance with any of your other pages? I could try copying one with a blog if you wish. Anders wens ik jou nog veel plezier met Yola!
