The Live Copy module helps you manage complex multisite installations that share similar content. It allows you to create live copies of master sites. You can then push any changes you make in the master to the live copy pages. You do not need to manually copy similar pages to multiple locations in order to perform updates.

Components and fields in components on live copy pages can be changed individually and protected from master content changes.

As a lot of content can be copied and linked, a single wrong action can have a negative impact on a big part of your website.

Plan your content structure in detail before using Live Copy.

Give the rights to execute Live Copy actions to privileged users with sufficient instructions only.

Note about transformers

For compatibility fields (before 6.2.3) that still use (deprecated) transformer classes, only the following default transformers are supported:

  • Composite field: info.magnolia.ui.form.field.transformer.composite.CompositeTransformer

  • Switchable field: info.magnolia.ui.form.field.transformer.composite.SwitchableTransformer

  • Multivalue field: info.magnolia.ui.form.field.transformer.multi.MultiValueTransformer

  • Multivalue composite field: info.magnolia.ui.form.field.transformer.multi.MultiValueSubChildrenNodePropertiesTransformer

For example, if you have a link field inside a composite field, the relink function only works if the composite field’s transformer class is CompositeTransformer.

Installing with Maven

Maven is the easiest way to install the module. Add the following to your bundle:

<dependency>
  <groupId>info.magnolia.livecopy</groupId>
  <artifactId>magnolia-livecopy</artifactId>
  <version>3.2.10</version>
</dependency>
