Make a “copy” of an existing blog

Here at University of Bergen, people can create their own blogs at:

After creating the new blog, then posts, pages and other stuff can be exportet from the old one under Tools – Export.

Save the exported XML file somewhere on your computer.

Next thing is to activate the WordPress Importer plugin in the new blog that you just created. It’s done under Dashboard – Plugins (search for keyword Import).

Then, import the xml file under Tools – Import

To make it maybe clearer, I also made this video:

issuu pdf sync – it works … but

[pdf issuu_pdf_id=”140327143047-86dbdac2750a4fa883b13e0df8cb290b” layout=”1″ bgcolor=”FFFFFF” allow_full_screen_=”1″ flip_timelaps=”6000″ ] The plugin is installed from: http://wordpress.org/plugins/issuu-pdf-sync/ but not in Ipad. I guess it is flash based, so we hope for future release that will support Ipad, Iphone and other mobile units…
