Managing Page Parts
Besides finding page parts on your pages, you can also find the page parts being used on your site by clicking on the Page Parts icon in your navigation pane.
Once you have navigated to Page Parts, you will notice that there are three sub tabs within this module. One each for 'Page Parts, 'Content', and 'Custom Page Parts'. You can click on the tab of choice to find the page part(s) that you would like to manage within that section.
Each of your page parts are grouped together based on type. You can click on any of the boxes to open up and see a listing of that particular type of page part being used on your site.
Adding New Page Parts from this view
Within each page parts section, we will list out all the current page parts that are being used on your site.
To add a new page part directly from this view click the 'Add New' button on the top right of the listing and the following screen will be displayed allowing you to add a new page part to your site. You will be provided the option to create a New page part or Mirror another page part. Some page parts will give you an additional option to copy the content from another page part (click here to learn more about cloning vs. copying). Once it has been added, you then can choose to install it on any page that you would like.
Editing Page Parts from this view
Each line item in each page part contains an 'edit' link which will allow you to go directly to the page that the page part is installed on to edit it. This is a huge time saver if you are not sure where that blog or news archive is on your site exactly but you know that you need to update it. Rather than searching through a lot of pages, you can easily click the associated 'edit' link and it will take you straight to it.
If you'd rather save a bit more time and not be re-routed to the page itself to edit, you can click on the next icon which will allow you to edit the page part's content instantly in the current view.
Uninstalling and Deleting Page Parts from this view
You can uninstall and delete page parts while you are working on each page, however, you can also do it while you're working in the main Page Parts tab of the system as well. First, you can click the 'uninstall' link on any item to remove it from the page and it will be in an 'uninstalled' status. This allows all data to be retained especially if you know you will need to use the data again later on. It saves you time from having to delete it now and recreate it later.
If you are ready to delete the page part and do not want to retain the data, you can click the 'delete' link and confirm the option to completely remove the page part from the page. This will delete the page part and its contents from the system. Once you have deleted a page part, it will be gone and can not be recovered.
