Copy Button Block

The Copy Button Block lets your visitors duplicate an existing page and provides them access to edit the new page. For example, visitors might click on a button to be added to your mailing list and be presented with a copy of a registration form page to fill out with their individual information.

This block is extremely powerful for site designers in that it allows cloning of sub-trees and user permissions.  With this you can define a re-usable template somewhere, possibly somewhere hidden, and insert the clone module wherever you want to allow a user to create a copy.

Example usages

  • "Make a new customer"
  • "Add classroom"
  • "New Trade Show"

This block type is a biggie for site designers in that it allows cloning of subtrees and user permissions.  With this you can define a reusable template somewhere, possibly somewhere hidden,  and insert this block wherever you want to allow a user to create a copy


Example Use

The setup: You set the Copy Button to copy the "_Member Business" page. Then, you select a user named "_template business owner" in this pulldown menu. Set the permissions so that "_template business owner" has permission to edit a General Block and a Picture Block on the "_Member Business" page.

The operation: If Suzan clicks this copy button block, the "_Member Business" will be copied and renamed, and Suzan will have permission to edit the General Block and Picture Block on newly copied page. In essence, the page becomes her page which she and only she will edit.

 

Tips:

  • Put the  "_template business owner" page under the StoreRoom page, such as Storerroom/Template Pages/_template business owner. This way the template page will not be visible to the public
  • Make the page be copied under a page such as "Member Businesses"

What it Does

When used the web page will have a button with this block's title. This button when clicked, copies and renames a page and its subpages and pastes it into a new location. It can also be set to copy user permissions over to a new user.
