    Is it possible to duplicate a template but create a new master page file for that new template?  I would like to be able to duplicate a template since it has everything I want on it but to define a new master page so that I can make modifications to the layout without effecting other pages that use that template.

    Hi tom,

    There  is built in option in Sitefinity UI that you can use to copy the template. You can create a copy of an existing master page and use it for other page. The duplicated template is the same copy of the master and can be modified only in Sitefinity, because it is created internally(there is no physical file).

    Let us know if there is anything else that we can do for you.

    thank you for that explanation.  I understand that the master resides internally but is there a table value or something in the database that would allow me to link the newly duplicated template to a physical file?

    Hi tom,

    There is inheritance from the master template to the copies and editing the master copy - changing the html (for instance) should affect the copy as well.
    The following tables only keeps data for the templates IDs sf_CmsPageTemplate and sf_CmsTemplContent
