Copying pages and collections

Copying your own pages and collections

When an ePortfolio is submitted you are no longer able to edit it. You may wish to duplicate a page or collection in order to revise and resubmit. Click on Portfolio and pages.

If the page has been submitted then it will be in display mode, if not then click Display Page and the copy page button will be at the top right.

If the page is part of a collection then you will be offered the choice of copying just the current page or the entire collection.

 

Copying other pages or collections

Click on Portfolio and pages. Click on copy a page. All copyable pages on Mahara will be shown. Use the search box to find the page using the module code or a name. If the page is part of a collection then the Copy collection button will show. This will copy all of the pages in the collection in one go. Alternatively use Copy page to copy just that page.
