We created a separate site in MSM a while back and never copied over channels, fields or categories. But now we want to do this without deleting and recreating the site. How do I do this?

1 Answer 1


It turns out there's not really an easy way. What I did was in the second MSM site:

  1. Duplicate channels
  2. Duplicate field groups, fields etc.
  3. Duplicate categories
  4. Duplicate file upload prefs.

With 1-3 above we used the EXACT same url title. Then we wrote this script to copy all the entries over, retaining their category assignments.

I hope this helps someone.
