    Lost template, have pages from template, how can I convert?

    camelbreath Level 1

      In a moment of crass stupidity, I managed to delete a template upon which several pages of a site under development are based. There was a P7 menu on the page. Fortunately, I have a couple of pages based on the template alive and well. Can someone tell me how to convert one of these pages back to the template from which it was created?

       

      Pages from the template are
      http://www.jdcdemo.com/pbc/greater-pine-bluff-chamber-local-apartment-list.html
      http://www.jdcdemo.com/pbc/greater-pine-bluff-chamber-community-calendar.html

       

      The calendar page is rife with errors of which I am aware. Most are not in the template.

       

      Can someone tell me how to proceed to recover from my dumb mistake?

       

      Thanks,
      Joe

          Well, we have gotten a lot of looks and no answer. From another board, the first response was the correct one, to wit:

          open a page created from the original (now missing) template
          - go to Modify>Templates>Detach from template.
          - save this via File>Save as template
          - create new editable regions via Insert>Template Objects>Insert  Editable Region

           

          I took a hard look at the editable region in the file from the template, and set up and named the new editable region as a clone of the original. The pages from the template, worked just fine.
