    Hello Tom,

    Yes, you can make copy of the template. You need to create new php file in your theme (of better child theme if you are using one), name it (for example) page-homecopy.php. Then copy content of the template-home.php file in to your new file and change line:

    * Template Name: HomePage


    * Template Name: HomePage Copy

    and that is it. You have copy of this page template - you can make your changes there. When you create new page in WordPress, then you can choose from template HomePage Copy.

    Kind regards,

Thank NAME, for their help.
