Transferring test content to live pages

Recommended Posts


Hi there,


I currently use a test page to try out new things and layouts for my site and want to know the best way to then transfer the content from my test page to a live page on the same website.


I did save the entire section and called it something and then on the live page add the saved section to it.  However, when I went to the test page and then changed the contents of the sections, it also changed the sections on the live page.


So, I wonder if there was another way of doing it.


Many thanks,

Hi Gary,


You will want to save your test page as a template and then go to your live page and assign that template to that page.

If you then want to edit that live page by configuring the sections options to something different than the ones configured on your test page, simply use the Unlock feature. By doing this you, your changes will only be effecting your live page.

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
