Very quick and very simple
By , for WP 3.8.3

Cloned my site elsewhere in under 5 minutes: pages, menus, themes, plugins, bells and whistles. This plugin rocks.

Easy to use, free and it does the job pretty good.

I recently found this, and it is BY FAR one of my favorite plugins. Big claims up-front, perfect delivery in action.

I have used this on heavy, complex custom sites, and it works. No fiddling with databases, no 40min x 2 ftp-transfers with the wp-content-folder. (12k files in ftp download, AND upload)

This plugin... Just set up WordPress, install plugin -> Import duplicate. Everything. Just. Works.

For developers and niche marketers: You can make your own "WordPress site template" with your favorite plugins,settings and themes. - Then duplicate the entire setup whenever you want to make a new site, all in 10 minutes.

My biggest concern now is installing older versions of WordPress on sites I want to duplicate to ensure compatibility.

This is my first review ever, and it is well deserved for the developer. I'm saving hours every week using this plugin. Thank you.

I just found this. What a time saver. I can copy a wordpress install onto my test server and make all the changes I want without killing a working site.

A fantastic time saver

We run training courses for WordPress at Web Training Solutions, in Ipswich UK. For every attendee we copy across a "starter" website using WP Clone, a brilliant tool that saves so much time, all the themes and plugins, and website settings setup and ready to roll.

An excellent plugin.

Does not work on WP3.8
By , for WP 3.8

I tried this plugin after WP Move failed.
I started the backup and got it to work even though you do not get a confirmation that it is done. I simply got a white screen on both firefox and chrome. I nevertheless saw a backup created so I proceeded with the import.

copy and pasting the URL is easy but after starting the import I only got.... a white screen. I hit reload and got the 5 minute wordpress install screen. good thing this was only a test...

I guess I will have to copy everything manually with FTP and phpmyadmin, the current plugins to move wordpress seem to be broken with 3.8.

I was waiting for the catch, there was none. This allowed me to move my site to a different domain in less than 10 seconds, I only had one link not carry over, but it was simply wordpress magic!
