Can sub-forums of the same instance split up and move to new independent servers (or discourse instances)?

Hi there,

We are about to move a few forum/mailing lists to discourse. There would be one master project that gathers a handful of dedicated discourse instances, all sharing the same interface and contributing to badges/credits for the users.

If one day the main project would fall apart, would it be possible to separate and move the sub-forums to new independent servers (or discourse instances)?

Thanks for your support

Worst case you could just copy the whole thing (with all instances) to separate servers and hide the categories you didn’t want.

Assuming the topics that should be moved out live in their own category, a solution for this is currently being proposed:


Thanks a lot fefrei, it seems indeed to be the most elegant solution.
