How to duplicate page
I would like to use 10 iboxes (always the same 10 iboxes) as left menu on 12 pages. In this way, all pages have the same left menu and they changes only for the page main content.
I don't want to set all 10 iboxes in all 12 pages (cause i should repeat 12 times the same values).
Is it possible to duplicate a page with all the boxes already set eleven times in order to keep iboxes images/links and change only the page main content?
Sections blank/default after database change
OK, so I've been having some issues with WP Engine, mutlisite, and Pagelines DMS2. I searched the forums, and the closest thing (that didn't exactly work) was this: http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/38307-wp-engine-server-migration-copy-installation-problem/?hl=database
To make a long story short, when I created my staging site, the Site and Home URL were messed up (it was adding "www." to the beginning). After fixing that issue in the DB with a find and replace (using the same interconnectit tool in the above forum post), all the sections are suddenly blank. I can't figure out why... All I did was replace www.[stagingsite].wpengine.com with [stagingsite].wpengine.com. The first one was wrong, so if anything I would have expected to have problems with that one...
Any ideas? Here's the staging site:
Here's the live site:
Custom / Saved Section goes blank
I think I've mentioned this before but not made a dedicated topic.
I often save sections out to remember them, which works often and well.
I do find however about 20% of the time I fear for my life when I add a saved section to a page, and upon refresh the section appears blank, and all the linked ones are also then blank and I will need to remake the whole thing.
There seems to be no pattern to this and I have multiple sites hosted across the board, ranging from MAMP, Heart VPS to Fasthosts shared hosting. This error occurs on all these platforms, which at a guess I would say the database table that stores the data suddenly some how loses it.
I would provide a screen shot/video but I have literally described the error and feel this wouldn't make anything any clearer.
So, to summarise.
1. I create a section, add the elements I want.
2. Save it as 'section2' lets say.
3. Add it to 5 more pages, all looks fine.
4. Create a few page templates.
5. Could be related - I then often unlink these templates that contain saved sections.
6. Add a saved section to another page, and refresh.
7. Viola, 'section2' is blank along with all the instances of 'section2' on my site, and needs to be recreated.
Like I say, about a 20% occurrence, not a one off though.
Also worth noting when I was using Voyant child theme, after I updated it all my saved sections were wiped also.
Any guidance or workarounds / fixes for this would be very helpful as I'm tending to avoid using these where possible now to avoid losing all my hard work.
