[opencms-dev] Copy site-content link problem

Hi Ludwig

Just offering my immediate thoughts:

1.) If you can manage to somehow accomplish what you want with the "Move" function, try using that one rather than the "Copy" function. 
2.) Try setting the "userelativelinks" property in ${OPENCMS_WEBAPP_NAME}/WEB-INF/config/opencms-importexport.xml to "true".
3.) You can always write a script that generates or modifies resources for you (such as the mentioned ttconfig-file).

I'm pretty new at OpenCms, but maybe this gave you some new ideas - good luck. :)

Subject: [opencms-dev] Copy site-content link problem

Hi all,

I've got a question regarding sites.

Our OpenCms instance is going to run 20-30 different sites. To avoid creating default files for each new site manually (options, column layout, ...), I just want to copy a basic set of files.
So, if I want to create a new site "mysite" I would copy all files under /sites/siteDefaultFiles to /sites/mysite. In siteDefaultFiles there are basic hello- world HTMLs, configuration files etc.

The file /sites/siteDefaultFiles/en/config from type ttconfig references a box in /en/boxes/myBox (relative address).
After copying the config- file OpenCms changed the links from /en/ boxes/myBox to /sites/siteDefaultFiles/en/config.

This is actually not what I want. I want the URL to stay relative or at least to references /sites/mysite/en/config.

I really tried a lot. Copy before creating the mysite, Create mysite and then copy, ... export/import ...

Has anybody got an idea how to handle this?

Thanks a lot!
