I want to select all, copy and then open another page, and paste the "all" into that one. No select all button shown. Other than clicking each one, holding down ctrl, where is the Select All button??????????

Open the page you're wanting to copy > select Save As > rename the page. The new page can be added to your menu.

Nice try, but that does not copy the page. That saves the page. I want to copy X,Y, Z from the page, open another page, that has places for xy and z, and paste that info into that page. I then save THAT page as a known page. Trust me, that first page has more than 3 items (xy and z) to transfer to that page. Here, try this..... go here - https://cngw.homestead.com/eagles.html Note all items and prices, then a header, footer, right and left links. The body has the prices

I have the page set up as a template, all you see, but no Date, Price or Buy Buttons (buttons have the price/html for paypal cart). Nothing on the page changes EXCEPT THE PRICES, based on the spot shown above in red. I have another page called eaglesat1450. (the price silver closed at today or close, it was 14.39 as you can see.) with all dates, prices and buttons current. I open it, select all (easy to do in the desktop builder) close that page, open the template page, hit paste, then save the template with new prices as eagles.html, the page you are viewing.

Scroll the page, visit other pages, and you can see what I do. I usually only change prices on about 6 pages during the day...but it could be several times during the day. 

Something has changed at homestead in the last day for my site. Visit and click links on other pages, see the confusion popping up, the links that do not open, and you will get an idea. This have worked great for nearly 20 years. Today, it went to hell.

So, if you right click the page, you're unable to copy and paste?

No, I am NOT unable to if I right click!! I can ! ....you just put your finger on the solution to that problem! Thanks, I did not think of right clicking. That solves the editing of the page price situation. However, I am not happy. I am not sure if you use desktop or online sitebuilder or if you have used both which you prefer. I can tell you that I find the desktop version preferable.

My problem today stems from the way I have my pages, they are spread over 3 websites. Did you visit? And did you find any pages that looked "funny" if you did poke around? Those pages have displayed fine for years. Today, many things on the page were tossed around, moved down the page, line space increased, and most type (Times New Roman) displayed at an estimated 14 pt, even if it was originally 8,9 10 or 11. This caused much confusion.

To correct the problem, until a fix/cause is determined, I have to use the online editor to open each page, make some minor change, and save and publish it. It seems to display right after that. I have many pages. And, some links to the same page work, and some give the "insecure site page" msg. Homestead techs are not sure what is going on, or how to fix it.

So, here I sit, opening, changing and publishing every page again from the online version to get through the weekend. Tomorrow I will edit one page with desktop and publish it to see what I get.

Thanks again for waking up my brain to the right click, I use it for everything else, especially explorer, it did not occur to me to try it with this....select all does not pop up on webpages usually.  I needed that tip!!! Much appreciated.

next question/problem please. Online, every page of prices I ever built appears. from 12dollar silver to $45. Not on the desktop, I deleted them long ago (the ones I did not need) I don't want to see them online in the builder...silver will probably never hit $45 again in my lifetime. I did not see a way to delete a whole page. I am sure you know how to do that. Is it doable, and easy? I see how to add a page. Thanks again.

With SB+ you can delete a page by selecting the "X" next to your page title on Page View.  However, that page will still be floating around on the Web and if selected the surfer will get a 404 page not found error code. What you'd want to do is keep that page on your Page View and redirect that page to another page and then remove the page from your website menu. The redirect will send the prospect to a new page on your site.

Note: Regarding font style and size: You can change the font type and size for an entire page by right clicking the page and selecting a font and font size.
