How do I move content from a static page to a Pagebuilder page?

As our responsive Pagebuilder editor structures content differently from static pages, you will need to move the content over manually. The good news is that this is very easy to do, and you only need to do it once.

Creating a new Pagebuilder page

When creating a new Pagebuilder page, you can use the same Title and Menu Text as the standard page, but for now you will not be able to use the same page filename (this is the URL the customer will see) until this has been updated on the original page. For now, you can simply keep the default file name and select "No" from the "Shown on Menu" drop-down.

Moving your images and widgets

Any images you have uploaded to a page, or widgets you have created, are stored by your site to allow for easy access.

You can very simply add select the appropriate Image or Widget container and drop it into your page. Next, click the "Choose Image" button and then add it to your page.

Moving your text content

Unlike images and widgets, text content will need to be manually copied from your static page over to the Pagebuilder page. The easiest way to do this would be to open Notepad on Windows, or TextEdit on a Mac, and paste your text content there.

Next, go to your Pagebuilder page and paste the text there.

Replacing the Page

Once your content has been moved, you have two options:

  1. You can backup the existing page on your computer (if you wish to retain this) and then delete the page; or
  2. You can rename the Page Filename and hide it from your menu - you will have a copy on your site but customers cannot view it

You can then update the Pagebuilder page, changing the Page Filename and showing it on your site. Then re-publish your site to see your new page live..
