Exported packages

Exported packages are JSON text files containing one or more Pages and/or Page Layouts, possibly with their media. As a result, these can be quite large.

Exported packages are typically files with extension .mpat-page


You can choose what to export:

If media are not exported, links to the current MPAT instance are kept. If the current MPAT instance is a private one, the export package will not work.


If you click Import, you get to choose a file. This file should be an exported package.

If a page or a layout of the same name already exists in the current site, the page or layout in the imported package will be ignored.
