#3 Save-As button in admin.pl's Template/Block editor


Or - a copy button. An example:

Let's say I've created a new seciton, and I want a header template for it. Generally, to be safe, I copy the current header template and work off that. (load the current header template, hit ^N to spanwn a new browser window, do template_new and cut-n-paste the contents of the current template into the new one).

With a saveas/copy button I could load the current, save-as, give it a new name, and go and edit. No cut-n-paste mistakes or mis-entered values/settings. No risk of messing up the current block/template, and I can experiment with the new block until I get it right.

    This is a good feature. Right now, I want to finalise a release, so I'll add it to the things we want to do in the next version. In thinking about this, there's some interface things that will have to be coded to do this.
    I would suggest that there's this ability in the command line template editor. You can use the same file the you're editing, but save it as a new template as many times as you want.
