Cloning a page/Page Templates

I was wondering if there is a quick way to clone a page in Radiant or if
this is a planned feature? It would be nice to have a “clone” button
next
to the “add child” and “remove” buttons. In the site that I’m building
with Radiant I have a lot of parts per page and I fnd myself doing the
same thing over and over per page. (I know I can probably go fudge with
the DB).
So either the cloning button or maybe the concept of a template might be
the way to go. So I pick a layout and that also applies a template to
the
current page, e.g. add the part tabs and some canned HTML to them.
So far I’m having a great time using Radiant, really straightforward
CMS.
The only issues I’ve had as a newbie where with the whole images/assets
location (I was just lazy and created a subdir under the images
directory
for my site’s stuff) and the other thing that I spent some time (all of
10 minutes) figuring out was how to get my CSS tab navigation working
with the radius navigation tag.
Keep up the good work! I was overwhelmed by the other CMS packages out
there. Radiant really shines in terms of simplicity.

I can see that this would be helpful. It’s not on the list of things for
the immediate future, but I would not be opposed to incorporating this
feature if someone came up with a clean implementation for it (with
tests, of course!).

In the site that I’m building
with Radiant I have a lot of parts per page and I fnd myself doing the
same thing over and over per page. (I know I can probably go fudge with
the DB).

Try this:

% script/console production
Loading production environment.

Radiant::Config[‘default.parts’] = “part 1, part 2, part 3”

Keep up the good work! I was overwhelmed by the other CMS packages out
there. Radiant really shines in terms of simplicity.

Thanks for the encouraging words. :slight_smile:
