I'm trying to build a portal template by using the import and export features but I'm having some trouble with the import part where some things are not working as I expected them to.

My portal has 2 languages (en-US and pt-PT) and the first problem I am running into is that the imported portal pages have no localization relation (i.e. the localization tab only shows the current language) as they do on the template portal. I end up having to reconfigure a lot and that's really what I am trying to avoid.

Also related to the languages, the en-US version now has 2 "Home" pages. I guess one is the default and the other is the imported page. Now I am left trying to delete one of them and reconfiguring modules and whatnot.

After checking the pages to see if the modules and their settings where copied successfully I noticed there were a few missing pages and modules. Of all my modules a couple were missing from their pages.

Am I doing something wrong? I've never used this feature in the past and from the UI I can't see any options that relate to this. I am running full export, selecting all pages and including everything except "include deletions". This is all running inside the same site.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

there are some issues with portal import/export, see and

I think that the portal import/export does not work at the moment, see also

Let's hope this is getting better in future releases, but feel free to add comments on the GitHub issue pages, or add one yourself for bugs that are not documented there yet. Sorry that I can't help you any further...

Happy DNNing!

That's disappointing. I was leaning on this trusting this to work to reduce my teams work load configuring portals.

I guess I'll have to wait for this to be fixed then.

Thanks for replying, you've been helpful.
