Create a site based on a template while keeping the template intact


I’m working on my second WebFlow project now (just bought a template) and don’t want to make the same mistake I made last time. Last time I started to modify pages, replacing visual assets, etc., and once my new site was ready, most of the original template pages (which I didn’t edit directly but got edited because attributes got inherited) got messed up.

What’s the best way to start with a template, copy individual sections, and make changes, without ever modifying the classes on the original sections and classes that are contained within?


Use the duplicate class feature and rename it something else, I would recommend something consistent and reusable for your own and any other developer that touched the sites sake.
