Learn about how to add components to your Web pages, how they appear and how to copy and delete them.
Add components to a page by one of two methods:
Divide long or very complicated pages into several pages.
We recommend no more than 400 components per page. Less if you need to plan for growth through any dynamic elements. Indeed, it is best practice not to have really long and complicated pages. More details are in this Known Issue: Page editing slow / lists break when too many components are included.
When components are first added to a page, they are represented in two different ways depending on their type:
Components may be copied or cut from one position on your page and pasted to another. They may also be moved from one page to another.
Always drag a component, or click to copy a component by clicking on its border or control bar, and never on the interior of the component.
Clicking on some components will activate a link or video. Dragging a Photo component may even fail. (Read more about this Known Issue: Dragging a Photo by the Image Fails.)
It is possible to copy components from your source page to another ('target') page, provided (1) that you stay within the same browser window, and (2), that the content finder is loaded -- look for "cf#/" in your browser's location bar;
(1) One way to do this is if the the target page is directly linked from the source page. Clicking the link to the target page loads that page in the same window (or tab, if your browser has several windows open). If the pages are not linked, you can paste the URL of the target page into the location bar, so it loads in the same window. Or you could even temporarily add a link on your source page to the target page and then remove the link after you have copied over the content. If the target page does not yet exist, you will need to build it before you start this procedure.
(2) The content finder must be loaded ("cf#/" must be in the URL in your browser's location bar); e.g.
You can type it in and reload the page if it is not displayed.
Copying the component between the two pages is now as simple as copying to another part of the same page:
The copied component will appear ABOVE where you position your mouse. If you accidentally paste the content in the wrong spot, you can drag it to the desired location, or use right click to cut and then paste.
It is also possible to move a component in this manner (cut and paste), but this is not recommended. If the transfer does not proceed as desired, you may accidentally lose your content.
