Hello,
Is the page that you want to copy a page in the site you want the new page in? If so, you can make a duplicate of the page by clicking the down arrow of the Save button and clicking Save As; the new page will then be identical to the other one.

Please let us know if this doesn't answer your question.

Regards,
Emmy

Hi Jill,

Just to let you know that we are currently experiencing a bug if you use the 'Save As' button. Replacing a page with a new one by using the down-arrow next to 'Save' and clicking on 'Save As' causes HTML error messages to open and the page will not load properly.

Unfortunately, our only suggestions at the moment are that you wait until we've fixed the bug (we're working on it as fast as possible) or you can delete your index page and start a new one from the beginning. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Is this still an issue? I am unable to save a new template. I followed the directions then click on Create New Page but there is nothing except for Webpage or Blog. Please advise? Thanks!

Hi there,

Are you wanting to change the template/style of your site? If so, you need to follow these steps:

To change the style:

1. Click on the 'Change Style' button on the top toolbar.
2. A dialogue box will open with the variety of styles you can choose from.
3. Browse through and click on them to preview in the right hand pane of the dialogue box.
4. When you've decided on the one you would like to use, make sure you have clicked on it.
5. Click on 'OK' on the bottom right of the box.
6. The new style will load onto your site.
7. Please remember that if you have added your own banner to the previous style, it will not be added to the new one - you will need to re-add it to your new style (if the style has the option).

If this is not what you are wanting to achieve, please let me know.

No, I am trying to create a template to generate multiple identical copies. In this instance, I am designing a website that consist mostly of numerous subpages with youtube videos in a standardized format. I want all subpages to look exactly the same without manually setting up each subpage repeatedly. Does this make sense?

Hello onenonlyrup

If you need to copy all the elements of a page, you can quickly do so using the Save As feature. Duplicating a page is also sometimes a wise action to take, before making any significant changes to it. That way you will not have lost any of your work if something goes wrong, or you simply don't like the changes you've made. You can always delete the copy, and your original page will still be there to go back to.

Here's how you do it:

1. Navigate to the page you want to copy
2. On the Yola toolbar, click on the down-arrow next to the "Save" button.
3. Choose "Save Page As"
5. The "Save Page As" dialog box will pop-up asking you to name your new page, (and give you the chance to change the page heading, and decide whether or not to include the new page in your menu).
6. Click "OK" and you're done. The newly created page will now appear up in the Page drop-down arrow of page choices, so you can go back to it again if you chose not to include it in your menu.

Please let us know if this suggestion does not work for you or if we have misunderstood your question.

Okay, now we are getting somewhere. :) I just now noticed the drop-down menu under "Page" for all the attempted saves I've made. When I click on "New Page"'s drop-down arrow, I'm not clear on how I can make a new page based on, "template1"? It seems that by selecting on "template1" page under the "Page" submenu, it simply navigates to that page rather than creating a new page. I'm savvy but this one simple operation has me baffled.

Hello onenonlyrup,

To make a duplicate of a page you are going to use the "Save Page As" feature. What this will do is allow you to create an exact duplicate of any page you would like, then make any changes to it.

To do this:

1. Go to the page of your site that you want to make a duplicate of
2. Click the down arrow of "Save"
3. Click "Save Page As"
4. Give the page a name and click OK

You will now have a duplicate of the other page and can leave it as it is or make changes to it. Hope this helps!

Wow, it's crazy I am a little upset, but A LOT EXCITED!!!! THANKS FOR ASKING THIS QUESTION Jill J!!!
