Duplicating pages and content

Duplicating is a great way to use an existing page, post, product, or event as a starting point for new content. When you duplicate a page or item, the copy will have the same blocks, layout, images, and settings as the original.

How titles and URL slugs copy

Titles

  • Copies of Layout Pages, Cover Pages, and collection items have the same title as the originals with "(Copy)" at the end.
  • To change page titles, open the copy's page settings.
  • When you duplicate a collection item, it immediately opens the copy's settings, where you can change the title and other item content.

URL slugs

  • Copies of Layout Pages and Cover Pages have the same URL slugs as the originals with "copy" on the end. Subsequent copies add a number. For example, a copy of /about is /about-copy, and a second copy of /about is /about-copy-1.
  • Copies of collection items (such as blog posts, events, and products) use the same URL slug with a sequence of random characters on the end.
  • You can change these URLs.

  • Duplicating a product will duplicate the product thumbnail image, which can display on Products Pages and social media. If you update the product images after duplicating a product, ensure you also change the product thumbnail image.
  • A duplicated product's URL will contain a random string of characters. You can edit the URL to shorten it.
