How to duplicate a wordpress site without the posts? (7 posts)

    The title kind of speaks for itself.

    Currently I'm running one auto-blog and I want to create another using the same theme, plugins and their settings. (I'll only change the logo, backgroundimage, name and tagline)

    It'll have its own unique content, so I don't need the posts, categories and tags.

    How do I go about this? Any suggestions?

  2. Are you going to duplicate it multiple times or just once?

    If it's once, just make a new site, apply the theme, and make the changes manually.

    It it's going to be multiple times, grab a plugin like Blog Copier, and then make a 'sample' site with all the settings and use that to copy FROM.

    For now only once, but in the future multiple times.

    I will make the changes to the theme manually, but how do I copy the theme + plugins + settings all at once? Is that possible?

  4. Guess what? You don't have to copy ANYTHING for themes and plugins.

    Make a new site in Multisite, and you have access to ALL the themes and plugins!

    Haha, wow! THAT IS AWESOME!

    Thanks a lot, man! I'm reading into the whole Worpress Multisite thing now.

    I've activated multisite, but I can only create subdomain or subdirectory blogs.

    What I want to do is to take the whole WP install from http://www.example.com and copy it to http://www.example2.com.

    Is that impossible with this setup or am I missing something?

    Oh, I already found what I'm looking for, in case someone else is wondering:


    That plugin does the trick!

    Thanks IpStenu!
