Working on a blog for a client in two languages. We want to separate the blog so that the English is on it's own blog and the Chinese is on a separate one but both are on the same website. Right now, both the English and Chinese are on one blog together. Is there anyway to transfer the posts to a new blog on the same site without just copying and pasting? There are a lot of tags and coding, etc. attached to each post, so we're trying to do this as efficiently as possible.

If you've created a second Blog page, you can move items from one blog to the other as follows:

  1. In the Home Menu, click Pages.
  2. In the Pages panel, select the page containing the content you're moving.
  3. Press and hold Shift and click the item or items you want to move.
  4. In the action bar at the bottom of the panel, click Move. The Move button only shows if you have at least one other page of the same type.
  5. In the Select Destination Collection window, select the page where the content will go.
  6. Click Move Items. The select and move options might look different depending on the page type.

I must second @deannadenhamhere, and submit a thanks to Paul for this answer. However motivates you to post on SQS, may it continue. This answer was extremely useful

Even applicable for blog post drafts! Just bring that shift button down and hold it, and mark the items you want to move around. Happy that SQS added a feature of logic and use (probably after 100 mio requests)

Does this work on 7.1? I have multiple blog pages on my site. Is there a way to move a post from one blog to a different blog?

Yes. Instead of holding shift and clicking items, you can now check the checkbox(es) next to the posts you want to move.
