Question on Creating New Pages




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...

Which version are you using? For CMS 5 R2 and above, this can be done with the "Convert pages" function in admin mode. Download the admin manual and have a look at page 47 :-)  You can download the admin manual for 5 R2 here:
