I wish this was part of WordPress
By , for WP 3.9

It would have saved me so many annoyances and so much time, THIS is how it should be -- make a copy of your live site (effortlessly!), reconfigure to your heart's content, transfer it back -- effortlessly!

Now, it doesn't work on all servers -- but even though that's a fairly serious flaw, I'm still giving it five stars because of how brilliantly easy it makes things when it *does* work. What this plugin does, is fix the truly terrible native import/export functionality provided with WP.

The only thing that would make it more awesome would be if you could select whether to copy the content or not, so it would be easier to restore from a dev site to a live site without overwriting any changes in the interim.

But I'm not complaining! This plugin lets me move WP sites by clicking my mouse a few times. That in itself is amazing.

Really quick

Definitely use this plugin if you need to move or copy your WP site to another domain or URL. It said may take a few minutes, but it only took a few seconds! Incredibly easy and cloned it exactly bit by bit. Recommend 100%!

hi guys
this is perfect!

all of my websites are cloned and transferred with in my new hosting and it works perfectly and smooth.

(unlike the other duplicator/cloner/backuper or whatever they called their product, they're hard to use and always broken.)

thanks gazillions who created this amazing plugin pretty easy to use :D

Works like a charm
By , for WP 3.9

I used to have to manually change the WordPress URL and the access both databases through phpmysql. This plugin saved me a lot of time.

Just remember, to copy over your plugins and themes folder to the new WordPress install via FTP.

WP Clone will copy over all of your users, posts, content and images.

Very quick and very simple

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

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.

so easy

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.
