Soon you will be able to clone an existing site into a new site. This will be helpful for professors who teach the same course each semester but do not want to reuse or overwrite thier old site.

For now you can use the Import/Export functions to move site content from and old site to a new site. This is helpful in several cases:

  • Moving an external WordPress site onto the Commons
  • Copying a Site (ex: from one semester to the next)
