How Zen Grid Framework 5 and buildr work requires a couple of extra steps when duplicating an existing template style.
This tutorial runs through the steps needed (there are quite a few but it is an easy process). Before starting please make a backup of the site.
1 In the template style you want to duplicate go to the layout tab of the template settings and save the existing layout, making sure to save using a unique name preferably a single word. Close this template style.
2 In template manager select the style you want to duplicate and click the duplicate button.
3 Open the duplicate template version and save without making any changes - this will create a template config json file unique to this template id number. Close the template style.
4 Make a note of the two unique template ids, both the duplicate and the original.
5 Via ftp or your cpanel navigate to \templates\buildr\settings.
6 Open the config folder and download a copy of the json file that matches the id of the original template style (config-74.json in this example).
7 After downloading rename the the json file to match the id of the duplicate (config-83.json in this case).
8 Upload the renamed json file (config-83.json) overwriting the previous file version.
9 In template manager open the duplicate template style and load the previously saved layout.
10 You should now have a fully duplicated new style.blog comments powered by Disqus
