Would it be possible to share a site manager between a "dummy" (experimental) site and another? We have folders in the site manager so it wouldn't be hard to keep organized between the two, what you want to use and what u don't. Plus it would be a lot easier than uploading every image or file that you want to use twice..

Hi Savannah,

Unfortunately you can't share a File Manager between two sites, but perhaps this will work instead:
1. Select all of the files or folders in the File Manager that you would like to upload to the other site. You can select more than one by holding down your Shift or Ctrl key (depending on if you want to select all or only some)
2. Right-click on the selection and choose 'download as zip'
3. Download the zip file to your computer
4. Open your other site and click on the File Manager button
5. Upload the zip file and right-click - choose 'unzip'
6. All of your files and folders will be added to your File Manager very neatly!

I hope this helps - let us know if you need any other info.
