I made a bunch of changes to my page in the "edit" mode, but don't want to publish it that way, I want to start back with my original page which is published. How do I refresh the edit page back to the original?
thanks,

Hello PJ,

If you have saved your changes then there isn't an undo within the sitebuilder.
As long as you haven't published your changes then what you can do is to view the code of the previously published page and then re-make your page in the sitebuilder.

I have not saved any changes, I just got off on a tangent and the page got worse and worse, I just want to dump the entire edit and start again.
I am new to this, so where do I view the code and how exactly do I then remake it?
thanks,
pj

If you haven't saved any changes then you can just exit the page. You could simply select another page and when you do that the builder will prompt you to save the changes. Just answer no and the original page will be there.

If you like you can also close the sitebuilder page and this will not save any changes you have made.

Actually, maybe I did save it, it comes up with "front page version 2". It has been awhile since I worked on it, but I did not publish it. My original is still on the website.
Can I just delete that version and revert to the published one, or do I need to just file it away somewhere and go to a new one based on the published page?

If you have saved the changes then your only way back is to edit the changes back to the original. There's no quick way. You need to open your published site, right click somewhere on the page that you were editing in the sitebuilder. When you right click you will see a pop-up with various options. The option you want to select is "view page source" or similar (depends on the browser you are using). This is your code for the original page build.

Copy and paste this into Word or some similar text editor. You then use this as your guide to re-editing the page.

It seems I did save it the last time I was working on it, but I didn't publish it. Any suggestions?
