Question on Changing Page Type




Changing the Page Typre of OLD page.

What is Did?

I have a old page(oldpage) with PageType1.

Now I created a PageType2 and created a new Page (newpage) inhertited from PageType2. I have copied details of oldpage to newpage.

When I tried saving it it gives me error that "ID already exists".

I deleted old page and then saved newpage. and its been done.


  1. Is it possible to keep the ID same of old page?
  2. Is it possible to change the PageType of existing Page?

Any help will be appreciated...

EPiServer 5.2+ has a feature for Converting Page Types:


This will keep the same page ID after conversion.

You can convert pages in Admin mode.

Admin / Page Type / Manage Page Types / Convert Pages

Thanks for your answers...

@Bevan - My problem is that I can migrate to 5.2 version. Is it possible to keep the Page Id same in new page?

@Erik - I cannot see this option Convert Pages. I am using 5.0 version.
