Follow Along with this Video Tutorial

It is often useful to duplicate pages inside the CMS for duplicating page structures with similar content.  For this you can use the CMS Copy / Paste page function.

Copying Pages

When you select Copy Pages from the Website Tree context menu, you will be taken to a confirmation screen with some copy options

  • Copy Depth - select the root page only, or the root and child pages
  • Copy Type - select whether to copy in server memory for a local / immediate copy, or copy to a compressed data dump, which can be copied/pasted via your clipboard to another CMS installation

Copy Data

Once presented with the Copy Data, you can use it to paste into a remote CMS, or your local CMS at a later point in time. Simply copy the text data and paste, or save to a plain text file, to later copy and paste into the Copy Data box during the page Paste operation.

Pasting Pages

When pasting you will be presented with a confirmation screen. You can select various paste options before confirming the operation.

  • Paste Location - select the relative placement of pasted pages
  • Paste Depth - select the root page only, or the root and child pages
  • Paste Type - select whether to paste from server memory for a local / immediate paste, or paste from a compressed data dump, provided from a copy operation


  • Pasted pages will not override existing friendly URLs, instead copied friendly URLs will be removed from the pages you pasted
  • Pasted pages will not maintain existing prioritized, featured, meta data, notes, or RSS associations
  • Pasted pages will attempt to maintain web experience, topics, and segments
