Check boxes from included page


I have a page (with check boxes) that is included in an other page.

Currently, if i check a box, it becomes checked on the both pages.

Is there a way to link the check boxes to the current page instead of the included page?


thanks for help.

Hi there,

It happens because you're literally including the page into another one. The include macro displays the included page instead of creating a new instance of the page, thus you'll be modifying the original page.

On your case I guess the best options would be:

1) Copy the content you want to use instead of including the page.

2) Create a copy of the page you want to include and then include the copy of the page so you can modify the check box values.


I hope it helps.


It was my thoughs.

Ok I will copy the content.
