Template Based on Default Template

I have set up my default template to include a background pattern, special fonts, and the general appearance I want for my web site. I need a second template which is identical to the default one except that it has two columns instead of one. How can I base the second template on the default one without having to duplicate all the entries?

Re: Template Based on Default Template

clone the template and then change the layout of the new template.

On the templates page, just click on the name of the template. “Clone” is one of the options.

Thank again, Rod. I didn't notice that option before.

It’s one of my favorite features since Backlight was introduced and has been real handy.
