Do you ever do non-school websites? I could use one for our neighborhood cause.Question

We have several new systems launching late this year, but in the meantime feel free to build it right here. People use the system for non class sites all the time, like this one for example. Just pick any school and a class year nobody would ever be using, like 1930 or something. Then just change the name of your site from the school name you picked to whatever you really want the name to be. Also click the Preferences link and rename "Classmates" to whatever the name of your members is.

But didn't you say already that once CC has completed building those non-school applications, websites built on the original Classmates model can't be ported over to the new ones?

That's correct. I'm saying you can use Class Creator for now until other systems are ready (from this post it sounded like there was a current neighborhood cause).

When the new systems are done the membership list could be exported from this system and then imported into any other system, but other than that things would need to be manually re-entered.

Wouldn't it be possible to copy and paste most pages -- maybe need to go to SOURCE and globally change the URLs after doing the pasting?

Yes you could do that. If you ever removed them from the source site they'd also go away on the other site of course.
