REplicating custom post types across sites

My client has a product custom post type that he would like to replicate over sub sites when he adds a new product, what (if any) is the best way to automate this?

    If you are using a Multisite please note: There are TWO ways to use CustomPress:

    1. Network Activate. In the Network Admin>CustomPress>Settings Menu you will need to enable subsite contents. There will be two checkboxes there: first enables the Content Type menu on subsites in the CustomPress section. The second allows subsites to use any Network level defined custom types. When network activate you can define custom types at the Network level and these will appear on all subsites. If enabled you can also define custom types at the subsite level and they will be restricted to just that subsite.

    2. Activate Site by Site. Each site creates their own content and it is restricted to that site.

    Pay attention to the above: You cannot move content around after it has been created so you would have to delete and re-enter. In most cases you probably should not network activate and activate locally on those that need CustomPress.

    I hope that helped. Please feel free to ask if you have more questions on the same.

    Cheers, PC
