Copy a section from one page to another

Recommended Posts

I searched for a soln to this and tried Cust Support, but got no joy. It's a real pain in the butt. Same for moving or copying and pasting multiple bits and pieces between columns on the same page! Good luck. I'll be watching this. Oh I found a partial soln. Just duplicate the page and delete what you dont want on the new page, but that won't work for many situations.

There isn't a built in function for this. As others have mentioned, you can often copy a page to inherit sections from an existing page, but this isn't always suitable. Users building lots of sites - and therefore wanting to duplicate lots of sections - may appreciate knowing about the Tools PRO plugin for the Chrome Browser that allows you to duplicate sections.

See this existing post about duplicating or saving sections:

This is coming soon! 🙂

You'll be able to choose a section from one page and reuse it on other pages of your site.

I hope this will be added soon.

Sure Ctrl+C works in some extent but if I'm creating a temp page where I design a section that will be eventually published it's really needed feature that I can clone that finished section directly to a published/live page.

Or if I could hide a certain section on a page from public, that would be ok too. But cloning sections between pages is a better solution.

They released it for a second, but then took it away! I saw it and tried it on Nov 30 night, but then the feature disappeared when I went back yesterday. 😞

It still beta, they will release it soon 😆

I hope this functionality won't be limited to 7.1 . So many people are still on 7.0  (I'm running sites on both).

With 7.0, you can use this extension to save a section.
