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.

@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 (, 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 -, 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 (

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