Is there any smart way to set a site (blog) as a master, which settings are replicated to the rest of the sites in the network?

There are plugins like this one: YD Network-wide WPML that attempt to accomplish this, but they don't support all settings.

    Can you be more specific about what types of "settings" you're referring to?

There are two options I'm aware of, and neither are free:



I haven't actually tried either of them yet, so can't recommend one over the other.

  • replicator works fine for me - just create a site with all pages / plugin settings / menu's / ... - and everything is perfectly copied to the new site. well worth it's 35$.

there is http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/default-blog-options/ too.. but its not working for custom post type or taxonomies..


With this plugin it's possible to duplicate everything from a site of the network to a new one. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/add-cloned-sites-for-wpmu-batch/

I use it like this:

  • configure one or more template sites (settings, plugins, theme, menus, widgets)
  • archive them
  • when a new site is needed, activate the template and clone
  • archive template

Yet another option to consider: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/blog-copier/
