Hi, what’s the best way to duplicate an existing website without impacting it?
Say I have a website - all done. Then I decide I want to try changing the default web page size and go through and resixe things, change font sizes, etc… as a trial, but want to keep existing site as is - it’s live - until I’m done and happy with all the changes?
I don’t see something to duplicate existing site… or copy all existing site pages, folders, elements.
Thanks in advance - Lewis

then make sure you include that folder name in the Path field of the
