Move, Rename & Copy

Keep your site organized by moving assets, changing system names, and creating copies.

Move

Moving an asset places it in a different folder in the asset tree. The move task should not be mistaken for arranging the navigation.

Note: When you move an asset, the live URL of it will change.

  1. Select the asset in the asset tree
  2. Click ••• More > Move in the Action Toolbar, OR
    Right-click on asset > Move
  3. Click on the current folder and browse to select the New Folder where the asset should be moved
  4. Keep Unpublish Content enabled to prevent creating an orphan
  5. Confirm Destination where the asset should be unpublished (e.g, live and/or staging servers)
  6. Click Move at the upper right

Rename

Renaming an asset changes its system name (i.e., the name that appears in the asset tree as well as the name displayed in the live URL). The rename task should not be mistaken for changing a Title (navigation label) of an asset.

Note: When you rename an asset, the live URL of it will change.

  1. Select the asset in the asset tree
  2. Click ••• More > Rename in the Action Toolbar, OR
    Right-click on asset > Rename
  3. Enter a New Name following the best practices specified in the interface
  4. Keep Unpublish Content enabled to prevent creating an orphan
  5. Confirm Destination where the asset should be unpublished (e.g, live and/or staging servers)
  6. Click Rename at the upper right

Copy

Copying an asset will create a duplicate of it; you may specify a new folder to place it in.

Tip: Copying a page can be an efficient method of ensuring consistency across your site. If your site consists of multiple pages using the same layout, consider creating a page template to use as a starting point and copy it when creating new pages.

  1. Select the asset in the asset tree
  2. Click ••• More > Copy in the Action Toolbar, OR
    Right-click on asset > Copy
  3. Enter a New Name following the best practices specified in the interface
  4. Click on the current folder and browse to select the New Folder where the asset should be copied
  5. Click Copy at the upper right
