Export-Import and Save for later use

How to reuse custom designs. In SP Page Builder Pro once you create a custom design (Page, Row, and addon), you can save it for later use as many times you want.

Import - Export pages

Each page offers export/import functionality. With SP Page Builder Pro 4, you can export any page and store them for later use and on other websites. Page structure is saved as .json file. The saved file doesn't contain images, mp4 or attachments inside - only links to those resources. 


In front-end editor:

  1. Click on "Layers".
  2. On Canvas name click on ":" dots to open extra features.
  3. Choose the Import or Export feature.

Click “Export” to export a page, sppb module or article content you’ve created. Doing so will provide you with a .json file that should be downloaded from that page.  

To import a saved page from the front-end editor click 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. Notice! The import process will override current page content if you do this on not a new page.

Notice! You can reuse exported pages also on different websites, but you have to be sure that it contains the same list of addons and image structure. If not, part of the content may not work. Exported .json file does not contain any addon code inside, only layout and page settings. Also, you need to have the same images stored in the new destination to get the visuals. 

Page Duplicate (Save as Copy)

You can create a Page duplicate (Copy/Clone) and use it. It's useful when you finished the edition of the page, and now you want to create a similar one, but this time with a different language. After you will click "Save as Copy", the editor will create a new page with the content of a copied page and the new page will be active and ready to use it. So far it works only for Pages, not Articles nor Modules!

Save Row - Save and reuse Custom Section

After you’ve created a row and put everything you need inside, you can then save the entire row and save it for later use. To do so, click on the save icon of that row. See the screenshot below.

Save Row

Then before saving you can name a custom section as you need.

Later, anytime can reuse it from "Layouts" > Sections > Saved Items.

Saved Row-Section

Notice! You can save the Section with a columns grid and all addons inside. But you cannot save the selected column. Save feature is working only for Sections and addons.

Save Addon(s)

You can save any added addon (click the "Floppy disk" icon) with its content, and all settings for future use. This is a great time-saving feature when you are creating a new website. This saved addon you can use multiple times in Pages, SPPB modules, and Articles with SPPB mode.

Save Addon

Where I can find saved addon(s)?

In SP Page Builder 5.x click Layouts > Saved Items (1) > Addons (2) > Select item and then click Insert button (3).
