I wish to use the Forum or Advanced forum module to create forums. But to save time I need to duplicate forum structure to create new ones. I've done Google search but did not find any useful information.

For example for a schools website, I can create another school just by copying a school structure that'll copy all child forums as classes which I'll not need to recreate.

Can anybody help me with this?

    What you mean by forum structure? – niksmac Nov 26 '12 at 9:17
  • Copying the Forum along with Child forums with/without posts within them. – AgA Nov 26 '12 at 9:24
  • I am not sure whether it works or not. Can you try drupal.org/project/node_export – niksmac Nov 26 '12 at 9:28
  • Forum is not listed - moreover a forum structure will contain plenty of nodes. – AgA Nov 26 '12 at 9:31
  • I am also waiting for an answer. – niksmac Nov 26 '12 at 9:33

What you should do is something like an Install Profile: https://drupal.org/developing/distributions

You can create Install Profiles from exiting sites with: https://drupal.org/project/profiler https://drupal.org/project/profiler_builder

What I would do is make the first site exactly how you want it and then turn that into a Install Profile.

An easier way to do this if you have AEgir is to just clone your first site and then keep it as a template to clone others.
