cloning not working (from Outside >to< Inside content)

Recommended Posts


cloning is still not working in following context

  • from "sections" created within the "PL-page editor"
  • to be cloned to ... sections "within the content" of a post/page


Suggested solution

  • see attached images
  • have in PL-page editor
    • an additional field 
      • to enter the ID .... of the already existent section" (to be cloned)
    • this will
      • have the same function as in "Shorrtcodes of "content of page/post" (UNIQUE ID)
      • and overrreide all other fields of the "actual section"
  • make the cloning
    • available across "PL-page editor  
    • AND 
    • "sections in content" within a "page/post"


Solving this issue has the positive impact to today lacking functions, or current issues:

  • moving "container content" to the "content area of a post/pages"
    • produce a container in a "PL-Page editor" ... containing sections 
      • copy the ID of the container 
    • move to "edit post/page"
      • Insert a PL-Section
      • container
      • add ID
  • solving the current "missing GRID function"
    • produce a container in a "PL-Page editor" ... containing a sections (a GRID) 
      • same routine as above .... GRID FUNCTION is solved
  • locking of "template sections"
    • to support sections to bring back the function to lock of content
    • if I want a section
      • to be once changed
      • cahanges apply to all sections with same ID
      • all over the site

      Hey Guys,
      I'm working on http://www.asanalibraryonline.com/seated-poses/dandasana/ right now. There will be 100 different pages for 100 different yoga poses. Each page will have the exact same design, but different pictures and text. Is there a way to create a page template that I can re use for each individual pose?
      I tried to save the page template and then activate it on the 2nd page/pose I was working on, but all it did was clone the page. The moment I edited the second page/pose, the changes reflected on the first page too. 
      So my question is, How do I save all the sections and formatting as a template and still be able to edit it individually?

      Hi guys
      Perhaps I am being silly, or simply doing it wrong.
      I create the page I am happy with and assign it to the template 'page1' for example.
      I now want another page with the same template, so I load 'page1'.  This page has different colours, content, and imagery etc, but all of the loaded dms elements share the same IDs as the previous page, which they would if they are the same template.  So I rename this template 'page2', and it still keeps the same ID... ? I tried to unlink the page 2, before recreating the new template file, but it seemed to still keep the same IDs - so is this the best way to do this or am I missing something?

      Are Trickle and Flip Slide sections designed to behave correctly if cloned? I very well may have done something wrong, but when I cloned these two sections, the clones would not show up as active in the templates. The original sections (not the clones) activated correctly.
