How do you set or style default "New Page" in Upfront Editor (from theme created in builde

Scenario:
- I've created a theme called "New Start" in Upfront Builder.
- I exported and installed the New Start theme in a separate domain (newstart.iconmarketing.works) .
- Now managing the site in Upfront Editor (separate hosting/worpress account), creating a "New Page" gives me a generic default layout as seen below:

How do I edit or set a template in Upfront Builder so that when I create a "New Page" template in Editor looks more like this?:

Also...What's the best practice for updating a theme after the following scenario?
- Theme created in Upfront Builder
-Theme exported and installed on a separate web site/hosting
-Changes/updates made to original theme in Upfront Builder and now need changes to reflect on external site.

Do I export the theme and delete the active theme on the external site and reinstall? Or is there a better way?

Hope this makes sense.

    Hi there Leno

    To get your pages to sue the same "template", you need to create/edit the "Layout" for that post-type or content. So for your pages, you would want to create or edit the single-page layout. See the manuals for more on layouts here:
    https://premium.wpmudev.org/docs/upfront-and-themes/using-the-upfront-builder/

    Yes, updating a theme made in Builder is simply a matter of uploading it to the site to overwrite or replace the existing theme.

    The reason is that when you edit & save in Builder, it writes to files that can be downloaded & installed on other sites. But when an Upfront theme - a starter theme or one made in Builder - is edited in the Upfront editor, changes are saved to the database. So your clients can safely edit a custom-built theme on a site (changes will be saved to that site's database), then update the theme with a new version you created on your site in your Builder. :slight_smile:
