Allow custom templates to be made
I would like the option to save a site as a template so that it appears in the template page for new sites. For example I have loads of plugins and settings that I always install with Wordpress so this would allow me to save that as a template.
It will be relay helpful if the project (site) can export to templates.
I do agree with Robert.
I should be able to save a website as a template so that I can use it to create new projects.
The "Open Folder as Site" is taking care of this presently though. (But i have to keep manually duplicating the folder so that it wouldnt end up as the website i just used it to create).
So it'll be great if the settings would just be in webmatrix as a template. That makes the job faster with less chances of mistakenly overwriting the template.
People are just used to a way of doing things so it'll be ok if you also consider that when developing new softwares.
I believe, you are thinking in the wrong direction. I would appreciate it, if I could save a structure of directories and files as a template.
Thanks for sending us your suggestion! We believe in the usefulness of this feature and will be considering it in the future releases of WebMatrix.
Can you provide me examples of the plugins and settings in Wordpress that you are interested in keeping in your templates?
