Hello, I am building a custom website but a couple pages are going to be very similar. If I edit an article with Themler and customize it can I save it as a copy in Joomla and reopen in Themler to make the changes I need?

I am wondering if this will cause any issues not creating it in Themler from the beginning?

If so is there another option to clone a article in Themler?

Thank you

Hello,

The difference is that when you edit the article in Themler it will be displayed in Joomla as shortcodes - visual editing will not be possible, it is possible only to edit text in code. If you are OK with this - then the way you describe looks appropriate for your purpose.

Hello, basically I want to clone the article I made custumized with Themler using Joomla. Yes it will all be shortcodes but will the styles somehow be tied to both article sections, etc. causing updates on one article to change the other?

E.g. if I change the text color in a section will it update both articles? This is what I am wondering about. This would not be what I want to happen.

Hello,

The changes shouldn't be shared between articles, as this is content (article) and is individual for each menu item.
