I have one website that I found easy to work with. Then I started a new and unrelated website. I want to use the same template as before, but I can't find it listed on the website manager page. I have tried others but I really am most comfortable with the old one.

How can I do this?

I see only 1 website on your account. I assume you mean the new Websitebuilder. If you wish to create a new site, please do so. I can convert it to a Sitebuilder site for you so that you can select the same template as before.

Thanks for the reply, Drew!

I'm not too savvy with the terms.  I had the original site started over a year ago and I thought the template I used was pretty good and easy to work with.  This website is managed through an organization. 

I came back to Homestead to start a second website of  a personal nature.  I really want to use the same template because it's one I'm used to - but it's not related to the content of Fort Harrison.  I have tried to start the new website but it's on a different account entirely.

I'm not sure what the difference is between Websitebuilder and Sitebuilder?  When I called the 1800# for help, they said it wouldn't be possible because the first template is on the old system and the new one has new templates.

Any additional info you can give would be great!

Thank you!!!

All new sites are using Websitebuilder and have a different program to edit. They also have different templates. This site you are logged into is Sitebuilder. The other account I assume is Websitebuilder. The templates are not the same. I can convert the site to use Sitebuilder for you, but would need you to log into that account and post from that account, so I can find it. If you have done any work in the new account, it would be lost with the conversion.
