I don’t know about you, but I have always wanted to have the ability to clone my blog in a different location just in case. I usually do that on my all shared hosting accounts, but before I got WP Clone, things were a bit more difficult. I had to deal with MySQL and my FTP accounts, and often things went wrong during the process. That’s until I found WP Clone.
WP Clone basically does what a disk image does on your PC. If you have Norton Ghost, you probably know what I am talking about. When Windows breaks, it’d be awesome to have the ability to pop 4 DVDs in and restore everything back to normal, and you can do that with Norton Ghost. WP Clone does that and more for your WordPress blog. Let’s say you spend a few months figuring out the best plug-ins for a single WordPress blog. Then you decide to create a new blog in a different place. Wouldn’t it be easy if you could do that with just a few clicks? You betcha!
That’s why I love WP Clone. You can clone pretty much anything on your WordPress blog. Whether it’s general settings, reading, writing, or even Permalinks settings, you can do it all. Best of all, it takes only a few clicks:
But here are the reasons you should consider getting WP Clone:
- You can create a template for all your blogs: once you find the optimal setting for one WordPress blog, you can apply it all others. This is very handy if you have multiple blogs.
- You can create your center of distribution: a bit similar to the ASP software model, you can distribute updates to your themes or plug-ins to all others by changing the master copy. You can also only change one blog at the time. You can also distribute posts to all your blogs.
- You can move your blog without hassle: this is really the single reason I bought this premium plug-in. I had so much trouble with my hosting companies that I dumped two in a matter of weeks. You can tell how much of a hassle it is to move a huge blog twice in 3 weeks. I knew that from my past experience, so WP Clone saved me a ton of time. All other features were good bonuses.
WP Clone is an easy to use plug-in, and it does what it promises. This process doesn’t achieve full automation, but comes very close to it. It’s a little bit pricey, but if you have multiple blogs, it’s worth it. I highly encourage you to watch the video by the authors before making a decision on this.
Verdict: 4.25/5 stars
