Hi, how do I use the cross-site configurator to deploy multiple content types across multiple site collections?

Thanks,

Neil,
What Configurator can do out of the box is limited to setting content type settings, not rolling them out.

From the user guide:

Adding Advanced Settings

List settings are used to set the advanced settings for all lists and libraries. The following code segment applies the setting “Allow content type Management = true” to the defined lists.

      <ListSettings>

            <List Name="Contacts" AllowContentTypeManagement="true"></List>

            <List Name="Content and Structure Reports" AllowContentTypeManagement="true"></List>

            <List Name="Events" AllowContentTypeManagement="true"></List>

            <List Name="Form Templates" AllowContentTypeManagement="true"></List>

            <List Name="Links" AllowContentTypeManagement="true"></List>

            <List Name="Pages" AllowContentTypeManagement="true"></List>

            <List Name="Reusable Content" AllowContentTypeManagement="true"></List>

            <List Name="Site Collection Documents" AllowContentTypeManagement="true"></List>

            <List Name="Site Collection Images" AllowContentTypeManagement="true"></List>

            <List Name="Style Library" AllowContentTypeManagement="true"></List>

            <List Name="Tasks" AllowContentTypeManagement="true"></List>

            <List Name="Team Discussion" AllowContentTypeManagement="true"></List>

            <List Name="Workflow Tasks" AllowContentTypeManagement="true"></List>

      </ListSettings>

Does this only apply to the top-level site?

Is there any tool available which will allow you to deploy content types between farms and sites?
