Create and save a custom layout template

You can create a custom layout template from a page you have already designed in Page Builder, or you can create a layout template from scratch starting from the  Builder admin panel (Version 1.10 and later) or the Templates admin panel (Version 1.9 and earlier).

Tip: If you want to use a layout from one page to create another within your site, you can duplicate the page rather than saving a layout template. Duplication creates a copy of your current page, including metadata. See the Related Articles for more information.

To save an existing page in Page Builder as a custom layout template:

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Page Builder 2.x: Open the Tools menu and click Save template, or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+j (Windows) or Cmd+j (Mac).
    • Page Builder 1.x: Click the Tools button in the upper right corner, then choose Save Template.
  2. Give the template a name and click Save.

To create a new custom layout template from the Builder admin panel:

  1. In the WordPress admin panel, click Builder > Templates (Version 1.10) or Templates > All Templates (Version 1.9 and earlier).
    If you don't see Builder or Templates in the admin panel, see the Related Article for instructions how to enable it.
  2. Enter the template title and click Add saved template.
  3. Click Launch Page Builder and construct the layout/
  4. To save the layout template, click Done > Publish.

Note: Layout templates are not public pages on your site and are not available for indexing by search engines.
