    How to clone content tree?

    Hi We have a situation where we have multiple sites with the same structure but different content on each page : ideally, when we create a new one, we would clone an existing site then just edit the content.

    Is there an easy way to copy a node and and all it's children to a new node (rather than one at a a time).

    They would all be in the same instance (so they can share templates etc)

    Also, I believe we could have a separate internet domain for each site?

    Hi Tim,

    If you have build up your website, where you have a root node, and all the pages that are under the root node.

    Then you can right click on the root node a say copy, the only thing that you need to ensure is that you have allowed the homepage node as a root node, like this

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks, Dennis, I have copied individual pages and never noticed the 'descendant's option! My mistake. Thank you.

    Or you could create a "Package", if you later decided to put one of the sites into its own "Umbraco" installation. This should wrap up all the media/content/macros e.t.c
