I need to take some online store items off of one page and put them on another, can i do it without having to enter all the information for them again?

Hi Savannah

While it is possible to save a copy of your whole page it is not possible to transfer individual items between pages.

Here is something that might work for you:
1) Click the drop down arrow next to the "save" button
2) Click "save page as"
3) Save a copy of the page
4) Delete the items on the new page that you do not require and save it.

This might be faster than re-adding the items on the new page.

Hello,
Unfortunately it isn't possible to copy an entire site and make an entirely new one with a new url. If you wanted a site that was exactly the same you would need to recreate it. I'm sorry I don't have better news for you on this. If we can assist you further please let us know.

Hello suziebr,

that one is possible. Would you be deleting the original site? If so
you would simply re-publish it to a different URL. There wouldn't be a need to physically copy and re-position.

If you wanted to retain the original I don't know :(

Hi suziebr,
I think Peter and I were reading your question differently. Are you wanting to create a duplicate site so that you have two sites with the same information (or close to the same information) both published? Or do you want to use the site you currently have, just give it a new url? Please let us know.

Emmy, your first thought is what I meant, wanting to create a dup site so I can have 2 sites with the same info, but 2 diff. web addresses. Thanks

I wish you luck with this Suzi. It would be an elegant feature to be able to copy a page from one site and duplicate it in another.

Not commonly requested or required but it has been seen as something that would be good.

remember your URL will be different, so any widgets or links you have which rely on the full URL of your old subdomain wont work and will need changing.

A better way to do it would be to buy a domain name - everything gets redirected automatically

or use tinyurl.com to get a short URL from them.

My vote is a domain name - easiest and best.

If you have access to the html (which I don't think you do for store items) then you can copy the html and paste the html into html (whether text or other wise) on another page and everything in that widget will be exactly the same. But like I said, I don't think you can do this for the online store items. You might just be better off duplicating your page like Monique explains above.

*HINT* *HINT* EMPLOYEES *HINT* *HINT*... if you'd make html accessible for everything (including and especially online store widgets) then it'll be so much easier for us to duplicate widgets than creating the entire page over again.

This is possible as it is.

Yola people don't have to modify anything for this to be accessible.

Hi Brian, 

You can easily duplicate any page on your website with the "Save Page As" feature so there's no need to reinvent the wheel! 

Here's how you do it:

1. Navigate to the page you want to copy.

2. Go to Page > Page Properties and click on "Save Page As". 

3. The "Save Page As" dialog box will pop-up asking you to name your new page, change the page heading, and select whether or not to include the new page in your navigation.  

4. Click "OK".
