It is often easier to duplicate and then modify an existing page than to start from scratch. Especially if the page you want to create is very similar to an existing page.

 

NOTE: There are some important issues to be aware of when duplicating pages in Big River, so please read all instructions carefully.

 

 

TO DUPLICATE A PAGE


1. Click PAGES in the top menu.

2. Click OPEN to the right of the page you wish to duplicate.

3. Click the DUPLICATE button. (image 1)

4. Click CREATE. (image 2).  Your new page name will start with “Copy of….”  Now that you have saved this duplicate, you can modify this name and other details.


Note:   if you select CREATE & EXIT instead of CREATE the page will be saved in the database and you will be returned to the list of pages.  You can OPEN and edit your page from this list.


 


  

The Page Layout will be a copy of the layout on the original page.


Additional details of the new page are populated automatically by Big River as follows:

 

· Page Frame - points to the same Page Frame used by the original page

· Form Contents - point to the same Form Contents used by the original page

· Confirmation Page – points to the same confirmation page used by the original page

· Confirmation Email - points to the same Email used by the original page
