You can edit either standard or global saved rows and modules, but there are different consequences:
- If you edit a global row or module using any of the three methods below, the changes are applied everywhere on your website where that global row or module is used.
- If you edit a standard (nonglobal) saved row or module using Methods 1 or 2 below, the changes are applied to any row or module you insert into your layout from that point forward, but it doesn’t affect any previously inserted ones.
Open the saved row or module for editing
There are two methods to open a standard saved row or module for editing such that the changes are applied going forward. There are three methods to edit a global row or module such that its changes apply to all existing global instances and all future uses.
Method 1: From the Content panel (standard or global saved rows and modules)
- In the Content panel, click Saved.
You’ll see a list of saved rows and modules.
- Mouse over the saved row or module you want to edit, then click the Wrench icon.
The saved row or module opens in a new tab.
- Make your edits, click Done > Publish, then close that tab to go back to your main editing screen.
Method 2: From the Builder admin panel (standard or global saved rows and modules)
The Builder admin panel provides a very convenient way to manage your saved rows and modules.
To edit a saved row or module from the Builder admin panel:
- In the admin panel, click Builder, then choose either Saved rows or Saved modules.
If you don’t see Builder or Templates in the admin panel, see the Related Article on enabling the Builder admin panel or Templates admin panel.
- Mouse over the saved row or module you want to edit and click Page Builder.
The saved row or module opens for editing in Page Builder in the same tab.
- Make your edits, then click Done > Publish.
Note: After you publish the edits to the saved row or module, your choice of how to close the layout page will apply to the layout only; the saved row or module has already been published or saved.
Method 3: From the layout (global only)
If you have an instance of a global row or module in your layout, it appears with an orange overlay. If you open it for editing in your layout, make changes, and save the row or module, the changes are reflected wherever that global module is used and in all future uses of the global saved row or module.
Save the edits (editing methods 1 and 2)
After you’ve made your changes to the saved row or module in the editing tab, click Done in the upper right corner. The choice of whether to publish or save changes can be a little confusing in the case of saved objects, so here’s a table to help.
|Action||Effect for standard row or module.||Effect for global row or module.|
|Publish changes||Updates the saved row or module and closes the editing tab. No effect on existing layouts, but future instances of that saved row or module show the updated version.||Updates the saved row or module and updates all instances in your layouts.|
|Save changes and exit||Changes are saved and the editing tab closes. Saved changes appear when you open the saved row or modules for editing again.

When you want to finalize your update to the saved row or module, open it for editing and publish the changes.||Changes are saved and the editing tab closes.
