Hi all, I've completed the index page (almost) and now want to add a portfolio page, using a different theme template but cannot find anywhere how to go about this. I'd have thought I could simply create a blank page and then apply the template, but when I try to do this it wants to exit the site project I'm working on a start a new one. I guess I can do this and then use absolute links to build the site but this seems a strange way to go about it. Am I missing something? (I'm in my 70s and not as quick on the uptake as I used to be).

The only way I know to do this and it is long winded & might not work properly

1/ open the project file with the template,, open the page you want & select a row at a time,, make a component from that row,, & save it to the components library,, you can then add the component to your existing project row by row.
this way is fraught with possible conflicts & complications.

Alternative is to take a look at the Portfolio page then make notes as to the styling for everything & then replicate it in your project

Thanks Wayan. I was afraid that was the case. I can do it from scratch with a blank template but that seems a very long-winded way to go about it. Page at a time, rather than site-wide management. Opportunity for CC to create a much more efficient app as there really aren't any apps out there for developing sites rather than individual pages any more.
