vB Version: 3.5.0 Beta 3 Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 46
Released: 16 Jun 2005 Last Update: 18 Mar 2006 Downloads: 130
Not Supported Is in Beta Stage  

This is a port of my 3.0.X Hack which can be found here

This addon allows you to easily copy/clone/duplicate a forum (and all of its sub-forums).
Content (eg. Threads/Posts) will not be affected.

Usage instructions
Upload the files from the ZIP to the appropriate directories, a new entry in AdminCP Nav will appear automatically.

This is fast-written Alpha-Code!
Although I did a few tests and it seems to work just fine I won't give any warranties - use it AS-IS at your own risk.
I strongly advice you NOT to use this in a production environment.

1.00 Initial Version for vBulletin 3.5.0 Beta 1
1.01 Updated for Beta 3: The Link now appears in Navgroup Forums & Moderators instead of creating another Navgroup.

Please only click Install if you actually have installed/are using this Hack, and click Uninstall when you don't use it any longer!

any way to bring the actual threads in the forum as a duplicate over too?

Can I update forums after duplicating all the ones I need?

Hi Andreas

This tool is working really well on 3.7.3 patch level 1 but I have loads and loads of duplicate forums to make. My customer insists on making them all even though most will stay empty for a long time.

I am adding about 20 forums at a time in an alphabetical list of top level forums. Each one has 40 + identical sub-forums!

Can I stop the updating forums process, add all the ones I need and then let it run through them all rather than letting it update after each batch?

thanks for your post, tim. it made me decide to download/install.

i have a situation tho, maybe someone here can advise me...

during the last 24 hours (not consistant, i took breaks and slept) i already created all the categories which are continents, countries, states.... but i only set up the full tree for my home state (hawaii). what's under 'hawaii' is what i wanted to copy to all the other forums. so, how the heck am i supposed to do that??? the categories are already there.
