Copying, Moving or Renaming an Asset

Copying an Asset

Instead of creating a new page, you may want to make a copy of an existing page that already includes your preferred page formatting and/or metadata. You can also copy folders and files.

  1. Select the asset you wish to copy in the Navigation Panel. Click on the Copy tab in the Main Panel or click Copy in the context menu.
    Location of copy links
  2. Enter a System Name for the copied asset.

Best Practice: Keep names short; use only lowercase letters, numbers, and dashes. Do not use spaces or underscores.

  1. To copy the asset to a different folder:
    1. Click the Browse button to open the pop-up dialog OR click the Parent Folder icon or path (in blue text) to reveal the search box option.

    2. A new dialog box shows the Navigation Panel on the left side and a Current Selection window on the right. Navigate to the folder in which you wish to place the copy. Click Confirm.
  2. On the refreshed screen click Submit. A copy of the asset should now appear in the folder you chose.

Moving/Renaming an Asset

All assets can be moved or renamed. Moving an asset will change the folder in which it resides. Renaming an asset will change its name and URL.

  1. To move or rename an asset, select the asset from the navigation panel and click the Move/Rename tab in the main panel, or select Move/Rename on the context menu.

  2. To rename, enter a new name under System Name. If you do not need to move the asset, skip to step 5.

  3. If you need to move the asset, click the Browse button to open the pop-up dialog OR click the Parent Folder icon or path (in blue text) to reveal the search box option.

    Parent folder structure

    A new dialog box shows the Navigation Panel on the left side and a Current Selection window on the right. Navigate to the folder in which you wish to place the copy. Click Confirm.

  4. The Parent Folder should now reflect the path of the folder you selected.

  5. Click Submit to save. You should receive the “Move and Rename successful” banner.

  6. In the navigation panel, the asset should now be under the folder into which you moved it.

  7. To make the page live and update the left navigation, you will need to republish the folder from which the page was removed, the folder to which the page was added and your site’s index page. For instructions, please see Publishing & Un-publishing.
