There are two ways to duplicate a layout: duplicate the whole page or post, or save a page, row or module as a template for reuse at any point in any page, which is in many ways a better method. Here are the two methods, explained:
Duplicate an entire page or post
- Log into your website, and on the front end ie. when looking at a page or post, look at the admin bar at the top. Do you see an option to duplicate the page or post?
- If not, then go to the dashboard of the website which you can get to by clicking the name of the website in the Admin bar, top left:
- Then go to Plugins > Add New
- Search for Duplicate Post using the search field, and install, then activate it.
- Now you can go to the front end of your website and duplicate any page or post.
You can give it a new title, then modify the content and publish it.
- or, perhaps a better method -
Save a layout element for later re-use
Firstly, create the template:
- Go to a page or post which has something you wish to duplicate, and activate the Page Builder.
- If you want to reuse the whole page's layout, then in the Beaver Builder Bar, go to Tools, then Save Template:
- A more likely scenario, and the one which you may find more useful is reusing only part of a page or post, such as a Row or preferably a Module.
- Click the spanner icon on a Row or Module. Unless you have a row with special settings, saving a module as a template is probably preferable.
- Click Save As to save the Row or Module as a Template
- Exit the page builder by clicking Done, then Discard Changes
Use the saved template in a layout:
- Go to the page or post you want to use the saved template on, and launch the page builder there:
- Scroll down to Saved Rows or Saved Modules, and drag your saved item into the layout:
- Finish off by clicking Done, and publishing your post or page
Note: you can reuse the saved template as often as you like. You can manage saved templates by going to the Templates admin page in the WordPress dashboard:
Please be careful not to delete any important templates, such as the header and footer of the website.
