Maybe it's my bad englisch (i'm from Holland) but I don't understand how to use the new templates. They are not imported in the excisting templates? And when I start with a new site from the beginning, I make a new website with a new template, how can I change that template with a new template? I want to see how the effects are between the different new templates..... I

I'am agree, the new templates are very impressive, but I want to "play" with in my site....

Thank you, Patrick

Hi Patrick,

Right now the new templates are only available for new sites, and you cannot switch from one to the other. We are working now on implementing the templates for use with existing sites, but in the meantime you can start a new site with each template to see how they look, and delete the test site after you have experimented.

We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to have the new templates integrated soon for use on existing sites.

Thanks for your patience!

Hi Jen,

These new designs are great and I only wish that we could apply these to existing sites. Is there an approximate date in mind so I can decide if I will continue on the new site I'm building and wait for the upgrade OR build it again from scratch?

Hi John,

I don't have a timeline for when the new templates will be available for custom sites. We need to make sure that applying the new templates, which are custom sites, does not overwrite your existing work.

I would suggest that if you are thinking of a redesign, go ahead and start the new design from scratch. You can copy and paste your text into a plain text Notepad or TextEdit document to use on the new site, and we also have a way you can save the uploaded image files from your current site to your new site.

If you would like to share a File Manager between two sites, follow these steps:

1. Go to Site > Content> File Manager.
2. Select all of the files or folders in the File Manager that you would like to upload to the other site. You can select more than one by holding down your Shift or Ctrl key (depending on if you want to select all or only some).
3. Right-click on the selection and choose "Download as zip".
4. Download the zip file to your computer.
5. Open your other site and go to Site > Content > File Manager.
6. Upload the zip file and right-click - choose "Unzip". All of your files and folders will be added to your File Manager.

I hope that helps!
