Copying Pages

Copying pages in Episerver is a quick and reliable way of building new pages based on existing ones. However, this approach should not be used for updating content of an existing page. A number is automatically added to a copied page's name. Example below shows the bad practice in copying pages for content update purposes (please see Fig 2 - Multiple exhibitor directory pages).

In Episerver, each new page inherits name of a copied page. Please note, that there is always a number added to it. For example, copy of a page with name Exhibitor-Directory will be called Exhibitor-Directory1. All existing links will be still redirecting users to Exhibitor-Directory until parameters are changed. If an original page was removed, links will be redirecting to a non-existing page. As a result, 404 error will be generated.
