Fantastic cloner. It does what they say. Cloned a single site in a WordPress multisite in less than 30 seconds. So happy I found this plugin. And, their support was no less than superb!

Thank you so much! I was dreading the process of manually cloning a multisite but this cloned it to a level of perfection. Amazing, thank you so much!

I’ve had so many issues with so many plugins doing backup/sync etc I was really worried that this one would be the same, but it worked like an absolute dream. Nice one!

What exactly does the WP Site Cloner copy?

WP Cloner copies everything you need to have a totally identical twin site: all media uploads, posts, pages, custom post types, taxonomies, comments, menus, WordPress options, theme and plugin settings (including which ones are active), users, roles, etc.

Theme and plugin files themselves are the only thing not copied by the WP Cloner. For cloning inside a multisite network, that’s not even needed, and for cloning to a remote site, you’ll just need to quickly transfer those via FTP. Then the WP Cloner will handle all the tricky database stuff for you.

Can I copy a site from ____ to ____?

Here’s what you can do:

  • Clone any subsite in a multisite network to a new subsite.
  • Clone a subsite out of network into its own single WordPress install.
  • Clone a single WordPress install into a network subsite.
  • Clone an entire multisite network.
  • Clone a single WordPress install to another single install.

Here are a couple limitations:

  • You can’t clone a subdirectory network into a subdomain network (although you can clone individual subsites between the two).
  • You can’t currently clone to a non-public location, e.g. from your server to localhost (although you can do it the other way around, e.g. from localhost to a dev or production server).

Are there add-ons for WP Cloner?

Yes, and you get them all for one low price! We previously offered the different components of functionality in WP Cloner as separate add-ons that could be purchased individually.

Now, you don’t have to buy add-ons anymore – all of the add-ons that you may have seen previously (Search and Replace, Table Manager, etc) plus a whole bunch of brand new features are all bundled up in this one Pro plugin.

I've seen other plugins that migrate or copy sites, so what's special about this one?

WP Cloner has several things going for it that differentiate it from other plugins available:

  1. It was made for first and foremost for multisite. Whereas other plugins may advertise multisite support as an additional feature or add-on, the WP Cloner was built from the ground up with WP multisite as the primary target.  What a duck is to water, Cloner is to multisite. If you’re looking for superior performance and smoothness while working with multisite, we’re pretty confident the Cloner will provide that for you.
  2. It does one thing, and does it well. The WP Cloner is designed to do one thing: be your go-to tool for copying WordPress sites. A lot of the other plugins on the market with features for copying/migrating sites are mainly backup plugins with an added feature of being able to import a backup on a different site to migrate it. There’s nothing wrong with that, but have you ever noticed that many times, when a tool tries to do multiple things at the same time, it does none of them quite as well? It’s our mission to offer you the highest quality site-copying experience possible when using the Cloner.
  3. The WP Cloner also offers some combinations of functionality like frontend cloning (automatic, customizable cloning of a template site when a new user registers) which no other plugin offers, to our knowledge.

What license is the code released under?

We release our premium plugins under the GPL V2 or later, and do not have any obfuscated components.

What counts as an install for support/update licenses?

An install is activating the plugin on one instance of WordPress , so you could use the WP Cloner for a multisite network with unlimited sites in it, and that would count as just one install (not a bad deal!). If you were to connect it to a second network or single site to clone remotely, that would be count as two installs.

NOTE: For WP Cloner version 4 we’ve added the ability to clone to remote sites which requires that WP Cloner be installed on BOTH sites. To temporarily compensate for this we’ve added an extra license to the 1-site and 5-site subscriptions.

How do I copy a WordPress site?

With WP Cloner you can copy any WordPress site, simply:

  1. Go to the WP Site Cloner admin page, and select the site you want to copy plus enter the name and URL for the new site.
  2. (Optional) Add custom search and replace or customize the settings to make your clone exactly what you want it to be.
  3. Click the “Clone” button and sit back while the WP Cloner makes a full copy for you in seconds!

How do I search and replace on a WordPress site?

You can do full-site search and replace with the WP Cloner in two ways – on a new cloned site (in Standard Clone mode), or on an existing site (in Search Replace mode). To search and replace on an existing site, all you need to do is:

  1. Go to the WP Cloner admin page, and set the Mode dropdown to “Search and Replace”.
  2. If on a multisite, select one or multiple sites you’d like to apply the replacements on.
  3. Enter an unlimited number of search terms and their desired replacements.
  4. Click “Search/Replace” and watch the WP Cloner make all your replacements across your whole site (or sites) in seconds, including safely modifying serialized options values.

How do I create a WordPress template site?

The powerful WordPress plugin WP Cloner will copy everything in the source site, so just set up your template site exactly like you want copied sites to be. You can include common shared items like menus, plugin settings, etc and leave out any unique content that you don’t want to be included in all future copies.

Then, install the WP Cloner and you’ll be able to instantly create unlimited copies of your template site, and adjust each one independently.
