Forgot to select "Use Page as Template"

How can I edit the mySQL so the CMS sees a page as one that can be used to create more pages? As the title says, I forgot to select that option when I was creating the website.

in the pcms2_contents table of the database,look in the ConteenGroup column for the records that correspond to the page you want to edit. each ContentGroup will have 5 records, one for each editable part of the page, you will need to edit the content and sidebar records.

so lets say you have a ContentGroup named "Resources" that you want to convert to a template.

look for the records where ContentGroup equals "Resources" and the ConentRefID equals "content" make a note of the ContentID value and enter that into the ContentPageSetParentID column.

repeat this for the "sidebar" ConentRefID. look for the record where the ContentGroup equals "Resources" and the ConentRefID equals "sidebar" make a note of the ContentID value and enter that into the ContentPageSetParentID column.
