Copying a site


You can create a new site by copying an existing one. This feature can save you the effort of manually configuring the new site. You can copy a site’s configuration or a site’s configuration and its content.

Note
Copying a large number of items can temporarily degrade your site’s performance. Copy no more than 500 items using the method described in this section.

To copy a site:

  1. Click menu > Admin > Sites & Settings
  2. In the Sites & Settings widget, click the site you want to copy.
  3. Click search, located to the left of more_horiz, and type  Allow Site Copy. (If you see the message The Site Copier is turned off in Global, ask your Brightspot administrator to enable site copying.)
  4. Click Save.
  5. Click more_horiz > Copy This Site.
  6. In the Name field, enter the new site’s name.
  7. In the URL field, enter the new site’s URL.
  8. If you want to copy the site’s settings as they appear in the Edit Site page, turn on Copy Site Settings.
  9. Do one of the following:

    • If you want to retain each copied item’s original timestamps and editors, toggle off Replace Publish Data.
    • If you want to replace the original timestamps and editors with the current timestamp and editor who initiated the site copy, toggle on Replace Publish Data.
  10. Under Configs, mark or clear the items and settings you want to copy.
  11. Click Copy.

Brightspot copies the site, and the new site’s Edit Site page appears.
