    Hello all,

    I have a question and I hope someone or Telerik can give me advise.

    We are going to start a project that could be developed either in Sitefinity or DotNetNuke. Both support themes, styling, custom modules etc.
    The only thing is that in DNN you can easily create one or more portals based on the root installation of DNN. This makes it very easy to set up multiple sites (sub-domains) with one DNN installation.

    My question: is it possible to achieve something like this in Sitefinity? It would be great to have a 'master' site and then create sub-sites (or domains) based on this site and have the modules and themes available.

    As I can see for now, I would have to create different sites in IIS and copy my Sitefinity site to these different locations.

    Well, if it isn't possible: would it be a nice addition?

    Hi Daniel,

    Unfortunately, this is not supported in the current version but a similar feature is scheduled for version 3.1 (Mid September). We call it Site Template and it will be a feature of the Project Manger. You will be able to modify supplied templates or create new ones. When you create a new project ,you will be able to specify template for that project which will include predefined Themes, Pages, Controls, Content and etc.

    We plan to extend this feature in version 3.2 so that any existing Sitefinity website can be exported to a template.

    For the time being, you have to either copy the projects manually or you can change the default empty project located in [installation path] \ telerik\Sitefinity3.0\ProjectManager\EmptyProject.
