  • Creating Multiple SubChannels at Once?

    I did a search on this and could not find it. I created a channel whereby each person in that group will have their own channel underneath (so each person's level will be 3 and then I will post things to that person and only for that person). Do I have to create each new channel manually or is there a way to create multiple channels to behave the same way, be under the proper topic, but you can change each channel to have a different name? Example: forum is Users, sub-level is Individual User Plan. Below THAT would be a channel with each user's name and in that channel all the information specifically for that one person. But I have 5-10 individuals who will show up in a few top forums I also need to do the same thing in. Manually is so tedious. Thoughts?

    Manually is the only way.

    I have to say, the system isn't really designed for what you're trying to do. It'll probably work, but if you end up with a large number of such channels it may impact performance.

      It is NOT a public forum. It's a private forum for small groups on a dedicated server. Every group is 4-6 people and I only run 2-3 groups at a time and wipe it out after 6-10 weeks and start all over.

      I don't know why you can't make "like" channels without doing the exact same thing over and over again. For example, I run these groups and each one has the same subforums repeating. People need to check in on a 4-5 times a week basis. So I would love to be able to CREATE Check In Week 1` and each person makes their own thread under that channel. But I'd like to be able to CREATE all 8 week check-in channels without the time consuming method I do NOW of having to do the Add New Channel and set it all up EXACTLY the same way I just did and then repeat that 8 times. A method of duplicating channels in "bulk" would be nice.

        You can quickly create channels or sub-channels in the SiteBuilder Channels module and then duplicate permissions for those channels in the admincp under Channel Permissions

          The reason this feature isn't built in because, as I mentioned, the platform isn't designed for this type of use. It not being a public forum makes no difference.

            This might be possible using a custom script that calls the API to create the channels. Contact me over at my site. See link in my signature below.
