Detaching Pages from Templates

Detaching Pages from Templates

Jason:

Is there a way to detach a page from its template entirely? Detaching a page from a Template is easy, but the divs and styles in the detached page remain attached to those of the Template.

I've even tried duplicating and renaming divs and then attaching a new CSS to the detached page, but it doesn't work.

Is there a way to detach a page completely, including divs & styles, from a Template?

Thank you for your attention.

you would need to remove the <link rel="stylesheet" tags from the page to detach the stylesheets, also remove any style code blocks:

<style>
<css here>
</style>


divs aren't really attachable / detachable, they are just placeholders for content that are used to apply style.

Thank you for your reply.

Your instructions worked perfectly well. Thanks for the divs clarification too. I used the <link rel= " "> tag to link the page to a new stylesheet I created and now I can freely manipulate the page look independently from the Template.

Many thanks for your help.
