How to copy a page, with custom fields and contents to new page?

  • Hi, I’m basically trying to duplicate a page that is using a custom field set to a new page using the same custom field set layout, and have the content copied to use as a departure point for the new page.

    It looks like it should work, when I use “duplicate” or “copy draft” the field set.

    First I copy my home page to a draft and then I go into the field set and either duplicate it or copy it to a draft as well.

    Then I set the location rule in the new field set to be with the newly created copy of the home page.

    Then when I edit that new page, I see all the custom fields and the original content.

    But then when I preview that page (or even publish it), none of the original content is there. It’s just a blank page.

    Any ideas on what I’m missing would be appreciated.

  • Copying the field group alters all the field keys. ACF is able to pull the content in the admin because it does not need field keys here, but on the front end even when previewing, the incorrect field keys are causing your issue.
