When a launch has been created for a page (or set of pages) you can edit the content in the launch copy of the page(s).
If your launch is based upon a live copy then you will:
- see lock symbols (small padlocks) when you edit a component (content and/or properties).
- see the Live Copy tab in Page Properties
A livecopy is used to synchronize content from the source branch to your launch branch (to keep your launch up-to-date with changes made in the source).
You can make changes in the same way as you can edit a standard live copy; for example:
- Clicking on a closed padlock will break this synchronization and allow you to make new updates to the content in your launch. Once unlocked (open padlock) your changes will not be overwritten by any changes made at the same location within the source branch.
- Suspend (and Resume) inheritance for a specific page.
See Changing Live Copy Content for further information.
To track the changes you have made, you can view the launch in References and compare the launch page with its source page:
See Launches - the Order of Events for information about the purpose and interaction of the Launch Date and Production Ready fields.
The status is shown when you select a specific launch from the references tab (see Launches in References (Sites Console)).
