Copy a layout and paste it in the same page
Is there any way to copy a layout (with text blocks, pictures blocks, etc.) and paste it in the same page ?
anyone can help us ? (-:
You can build a 'stack' that contains several blocks and then paste that stack on the page as many times as you want but all those stacks will be identical and tied to the original stack you built so that's probably not what you're after.
Copying each block in the 'layout' to the clipboard and pasting them individually into another area on the page is probably the best you can do (unless someone else has come up with a trick I haven't figured out yet).
By default there is no feature to copy a layout. Too bad. Maybe i'm not the only one how would love to see that in a future version...
Actually i'm having major problems with using layouts by even moving existing blocks on a page into cells of a newly created layout. When trying to do that, things soon get totally messed up after saving the edits. This is very frustrating when working on a live site, because the chaos only shows up, after the edits are saved (i have reported it as a bug).
Apparently, the core team has re-vamped the layouts in version 5.7 so perhaps things will straighten out when that version is released.
If you want the same page to display at another point in the menu hierarchy, in the Sitemap you can Move/Copy a page to another location.
