    Cloning-wise, this plug-in worked like a charm! The only thing the plugin doesn't do is duplicate the theme folder for the cloned site... so it's pulling all the info from the original theme folder. With that being said, you can't make changes to solely the cloned site - it'll affect both the cloned site and the original.

    To try to work around this, I duplicated the theme folder and renamed it, and then I activated the duplicate theme on the cloned site and deactivated the original. For the most part, it worked... But for whatever reason, some of the styling didn't carry over.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to provide a review and feedback! We haven't considered the possibility of duplicating the theme so that the clone can have a unique theme before, but that is certainly something we could look at automating and providing as a new feature in the future. Our typical usage is to want the clone's theme to stay synced with the parent / template site's, but can also see the value of your scenario too. We'll consider this a feature request :) and try to work it into our roadmap. Thanks again!
