Blog Copier

Enables superusers to copy existing sub blogs to new sub blogs.

A simple and effective approach to copying blogs within a multisite network.

  • Copy a blog including all its widgets, template settings and more.
  • Option to copy or not copy files.
  • GUIDs and urls in post contents are migrated automatically.

This plugin was derived from Ron Renneck's awesome WP Replicator (http://wpebooks.com/replicator/) plugin, although it's been 90% rewritten. Changes from the original include the following:

  • Improved performance on large scale blogs.
  • Improved file copy performance and an option in the admin to bypass copying altogether.
  • Removed limit of number of blogs that can be used as a copy source.
  • Encapsulated the code in a Class and renamed variables to be more readable.
  • Revised UI to keep it simple and easy to use.

Sadly the WordPress file management code is not idea for handling the copying of a large folder with subdirectories so we opted to stick with exec('cp'). On the flip side, we set up a filter (copy_blog_files_command) so that you can override it with your own custom copy code.
