    Hi
    I wanna setup 500 autoblog sites, but i have to install wp plugins and config the site again and again..
    for example: i active the wprobot plugin, and fill the amazon api ,clickbank infor etc... but how to cloner the setting? so i don't need to set it again.
    I tried wordpress cloner, it sucks.
    is there an easy way to install so many blogs?
    Thanks

    Try WPManagerDX...or use iMacros for that, shouldn't be too difficult to record a macro...or have it custom coded.

    I've been in the same situation.

    Best thing to do is go into the code of all the plugins and hardcode all the settings you want for each of them. Now this will take some time but you only have to do it once. Then when you setup your next blog you just activate all the plugins and you are good to go.

    Then I would advice paying someone to help you.

    WPManagerDX doesn't manage plugins.
    iMacros you'll need to know a little coding a well to tweak it and get it working like you want.

    In this business it's good to have a understanding of code because you'll need to be tweaking things all the time.

    Have you ever heard of outsourcing? Pay someone like $20 to install WP on each blog... Also, if you have Fantastico you can easily install WP then all you would have to do is upload the plugins (do what the guy up there said about coding the settings in...... maybe outsource that to for like $5?)

    Just go to some freelancing sites like freelancer.com or odesk, and hire someone to develop a custom bot for you that does that.

    i recommend you imacros, you will have to spend some hours preparing the macro, but when you finish it you can do all from it .... upload the themes that you like, upload the plugins, and set it all up, then it's basically an install from cpanel, run the macro and fill the blog with the plugin

    you can set default options in wprobot, i think file is called default.php, and these settings will be set as soon as you activate wprobot. Play with it

    The best way BY FAR to do this is download the SQL database from PhpMyAdmin of your host, open it with a text editor (Notepad++) and use the 'replace all'-function to replace all the links to your previous domain with your new one, then just upload the SQL file to the PhpMyAdmin of your other host. DONE

    I would suggest back up the site but the database would cause an issue.

    I just ftp the plugins to the new blog, this will be needed for the DB "kill & Fill", also.

    Has anybody done this whole thing with a dos batch file? FTP and SQL dump. Just wondering.
