Built into Pressero is the ability to duplicate a site. This can save you a lot of time when you have similar site setup from one account to the other. You can choose from a variety of items to either include or exclude from the duplication process.
To duplicate a site, go to: Admin > Sites > at the bottom of the list of active sites will be an option to "Duplicate Site". Click on that option.
Name - Name the new site.
Site URL - Enter the primary domain name for the site to run under. Enter the full domain name without the "http://". For example: mystore.mydomain.com. This URL must not be used by any of your other sites or you will not be able to duplicate the site. If you have trouble, make sure this URL isn't being used by a Deleted site. If it is, you will want to change the URL in the deleted site, save, and then delete again so the URL becomes available to you again.
If you would like your site to run at a temporary domain, remember to end the URL with the temporary domain assigned to you when you began your Pressero subscription. This domain would look something like: .yourcompanyname.V5.pressero.com. For example, the temporary URL you assign to your duplicate site would be similar to: newsite.yourcompanyname.v5.pressero.com.
Existing Sites - Select an existing site you want to duplicate.
Site Type - The site type governs the overall functionality of the entire site. The Customer Specific Store (B2B) is an e-commerce site that has limited access to specific users, Retail (B2C) Stores are e-commerce stores open to the general public, and Informational Sites are websites with no e-commerce. You can duplicate from one to the other but depending on which you are duplicating FROM, some additional setup may be required.
Click on the options you want to include in the duplication process:
The following items are choices in duplicating a site:
- Users (Guest Users are not duplicated)
- Categories *
- Products *
- Pricing Engine Assignment *
- Assets *
- Navigation menus
* Items marked with an asterisk are not available when duplicating from an Informational site.
As you will see, the following are not choices and do not duplicate:
- Purchase Order Codes
- Approval Plans
- Custom Email Notifications
When you are done, select the button at the bottom of the page, "Duplicate Site"
