# Clone Website (archived)

This User Guide page is relevant for the Old Website Editor.

If you want to test, re-use, or just make a copy of an existing website design you can do just that and have that copy be cloned to an event under your Organization.

To copy a website, use the Clone Website function under the Website section of the main Auction Dashboard menu.


A Clone website popup will appear, with a drop-down selector asking which event to copy the website to. Select the appropriate auction event and click "Continue".


The Website page will appear for the "new" website. Click the Edit (blue pencil) icon to complete the necessary details.

Entering a Comment to remind yourself this site was copied from another may be useful.

Enter the Address (just the event reference portion of the website URL) for the new website, then click the Save (check mark) icon.


Your new website is now ready to customize as needed.


When you copy a website from one event to another, any database-driven dynamic content (for example, tickets and items) is automatically sourced from the new event.

If your website has links in the text (or attached to buttons) to specific pages in another event, they will not be updated automatically to the new website. Any system generated links, such as those found in the menu, will be handled transparently.
