    I am interested in having two more Movies modules (the same as the Movies module)
    so that i can divide further into Non-Fiction and TV Series

    I copied the Movies .jar file and renamed it - however it was not recognized on start-up

    Is there any way i can achieve this other than slowly creating all the fields using the Create Module wizard?

      Yes you can copy a module jar file. However, you still need to edit the xml contained within this file. The index, the module name and the table name need to be unique. I suggest naming the module movie2, table name "movie2" and index "10".

      Kind regards,
