Duplicate a blog / structure

I'm going to use b2 as a sort of knowledgebase and would need to duplicate a 'template blog' as a new blog for a customer or topic.
This feature is not available now and so I manualy have to adjust all blog settings (including advanced user permissions, skins, widget, pluins etc..) - which is very time consuming and most likely not error free.

Would it be possible to to add this feature?

Also a question:
Should I end up with ie. 100+ blogs: does this form a problem in the backoffice to administer (choose blog from drop down list)?

Kind regards

@zebulon there is already a planned feature to do exactly what you're requesting. I'm not sure, but I guess we can get into this development as soon as we have a standard release of version 6.

OK - Thanks

I'm looking forward to that.

Could you also please answer my question? I had not any installation that would exceed a small number of blogs. It would be rather embarrassing to later find out its going to be a 'nightmare' to select a blog in the backoffice for setup or maintenance.

Thanks

@zebulon there are no limits on the number of collections to use in a site. In terms of maintenance, you may start the navigation with selecting the desired collection from the Site collection list (http://b2evolution.net/man/site-collection-list), which is an ordenable and paginated table, so it would be easier to find what you need.

Maybe if you keep a lot of collections as Favorite, the "Blogs tab" (Collections selector - http://imgur.com/Hzkq63m), will appear misplaced. In the other hand, if there are many "non-favorite" collections, they will be displayed in the selector as a drop-down list that could be a bit unconfortable (http://imgur.com/X361PV2).

This feature will be included in the core in the next 6.7.1 release.
