You are already familiar with the top-notch functionalities that SP Page Builder offers. Let’s learn about a new one. SP Page Builder provides 115+ pre-designed blocks and 90+ pre-designed page layouts (still counting)! But if you can’t find what you’re looking for, then no worries, you can always make your own custom design with SP Page Builder. And yeah that's one of the main reasons behind SP Page Builders’ huge popularity.

A more interesting fact is (I'm unsure if you already know this), once you create a custom design, you can save it for later use as many times you want. That’s what we are going to learn today.

Reusing modified addons

Addons are there to create elementary things on your webpage. One addon can be used multiple times and quite frequently you may need to do the same modifications. Haven’t it occurred to you ever that, "if I could save the final modified version of that addon next time I wouldn’t have to do it all over again!"? Yes, you can. Now we will learn you a little trick: Once you’re done modifying any addon, click on the save icon to save it for later.

Then give the addon's modified state a name that explains what it contain, purpose etc.

Later you can find the saved addon(s) from SP Page Builder > Tools > My Addons.

That’s it. Whenever you need to use that modified addon later, just go to “My Addons”, find it from the list, then drag and drop to your desired area. This feature is available from both the front and the back-end.

Reusing custom rows

The same procedure can be done with a single row. After you’ve created a row and put everything you need inside, you can then save the entire row and save it for later uses. To do so, click on the save icon of that row. See the screenshot below.

Now save it with a proper name that explains its nature/functionality.

Reusing pages

I don’t know if you’re using it but this one I love the most. I use it all the time. It saves me a lot of time and work. You’re probably cursing me by now for bragging about it without even telling you what it actually is! Well, it’s the page export/import functionality. Yeah, you read it right. With SP Page Builder, you can export any page and store them for later use.

Let's have a quick look at how it's done.
You see there’s a "Tools" section on the left sidebar of SP Page Builder editor? Click on it and you’ll get a few options, click “Export” to export a page you’ve created.

Doing so will provide you with a .json file which is the downloaded form of that page. Now there are 2 ways you can import a page. One from the backend and one from the frontend. To import a saved page from the frontend, once again click "Tools" and hit the “Import” button. You’ll see a prompt to choose the .json file, select it and you’ll get the page right away! But don't let your excitement fool you, you still need to hit the "Save" button at the bottom to complete the process.

To import the saved page from the backend, navigate to SP Page Builder dashboard, click on “New”. Then give the new page a title and hit “Import”.

Notice! You can reuse exported pages also on different websites, but you have to be sure that it contain this same list of addons. If not, some of them may not work. Exported .json file does not contain any addon inside, only layout and page settings.
