After publishing a catalog, it is common for users to make a copy of the catalog to begin editing a future version. In Coursedog this is referred to as “cloning”.
How It Works
If you think of a catalog as a set of custom pages, cloning a catalog simply creates an identical copy of this set of pages.
Each catalog is also assigned a top navigation and a side navigation, each of which is assigned to a “catalog scope” which determines the set of pages that the navigation is linking to.
For this reason it is very important to ensure that each catalog has navigations that are assigned to the catalog’s scope.
You should also clone the navigations associated with it.
When you clone a specific catalog, the website settings DO NOT get cloned; rather, the cloned catalog will pick up the global website settings configured at Catalog > Settings > Website.
How To Clone a Catalog
Step 1: Ensure the website settings configured at Catalog > Settings > Website reflect the website settings you would like to see in the catalog you are about to create via the “clone” option.
Navigate to Catalog > Settings > Catalogs.
Click the “CLONE” button under the “ACTIONS” section.
This will pop up a modal in which you will name the new catalog.
Clone the navigation associated with the catalog at Catalog > Navigation.
Select the “CLONE” button at the right of the screen, give the new navigation a name, and specify the “catalog scope” for the navigation.
