When i try to copy test1, i'm allowed to paste it into 'about', when i
want to paste it into 'index' however, the submenu does not enable it.
Also, i can't create a new page with 'index' as root level.
What might be wrong?
index is treated as a special case because it is the root node. what you
really want is to insert into authoring. that should work, and has the
result you are after.
