Convert existing pages to Layers?
Possible Answers to Your Question:
Layers pages use a widget structure, so there is no way to automagically take the design or content of an existing static page and turn it into Layers unfortunately. What I recommend is copying your content/text into a temporary place like a text editor or a draft page, then you can simply select the Layers page template in the existing page, Update and you can start using it as a Layers page. Copy the text into the Content widget or whichever layout sections are appropriate in your new design. The original content will always be in a revision if you need to go back, or if you deactivate Layers, it converts the layout into a text-only layout automatically.
