    NS Cloner – Site Copier

    Add to List

    This plugin ONLY works with WordPress Multisite, will NOT work in single site mode, and MUST be Network Activated. You will find its menu in your network administration dashboard (wp-content/network)

    This is by far the easiest, fastest, and most user-friendly way you will ever create fully configured sites on your multisite networks. As with everything we do, Never Settle is fanatical about simplifying user tasks to an absolute bare and joyful minimum without sacrificing the complex functionality going on behind the scenes. You will not find another site cloner that comes anywhere close to how easy this is to use.

    The NS Cloner will take any existing site on your WordPress multisite network and clone it into a new site that is completely identical in theme & theme settings, plugins & plugin configurations, content, pictures, videos, and site settings. Everything is preserved and intelligent replacements are made so that the new site settings reflect your choices for the name and title of the new site as well as other automated background housekeeping to make sure the new site works exactly the same way as if you had taken the time to set it all up manually.

    V3 Features

    • Advanced validation and preemptive issue detection
    • Robust system configuration and action logging to help with troubleshooting
    • All new Custom Add-on Architecture
    • All new hook-rich cloning pipeline for developers to extend
    • All new dynamic, responsive admin interface

    Standard Precautions and Notes

    • Unlike other similar tools, the NS Cloner supports cloning the main root site at ID=1! But please be especially careful with this feature. Multisite plugins like BuddyPress add tables at the main (wp_) level of the database. There are also several global tables that apply to the network and NOT to the core site. The Cloner automatically excludes these global tables out of the gate so that they don’t get cloned to all your new sites which will have wp_ID_ as a prefix instead of wp_. But tables for other network level plugins that don’t apply to the clone could still get copied by the Cloner due to its automation and inability to be aware of the table structure of every plugin out there. Our Table Manager add-on is perfect for unique scenarios where you need total table-level cloning control.
    • We always try to help, but we cannot promise support to users for this Free version, especially related to cloning the root site do to the potential complexities involved from environment to environment.
    • We have used the NS Cloner on production systems for years without issues. That doesn’t mean your scenario won’t find some new condition that could cause you some headaches. Unlikely, but always possible. We recommend getting familiar with it on a test system before you deploy it to a critical network.
    • And for the love – backup your data. This plugin operates at the database level to work its magic. We’ve run it hundreds of times on our own sites and client sites, and tested it thoroughly. It’s safe. But don’t take our word for it.

    Typical Workflow for using the NS Cloner

    1. Set up 1 or more “template” sites exactly the way you want your clones to start out
    2. Go to your Network Dashboard > NS Cloner
    3. Select the “template” site you that want to clone, type the name of the new site, and put in its Title
    4. Clone Away!

    Yes, it really is that easy.

    Primary Use Cases

    • Developers who host and manage multiple client sites in their own multisite environment – this will allow you to rapidly roll out new baseline sites with all your favorite standard plugins and configurations in place – no more tedious manual repetitive entry.
    • Organizations which provide “member” sites and want to be able to reduce the site spin up time to almost nothing.
    • Affiliates that host numerous sites through Multisite and are looking for a way to increase reach and decrease deployment times.
    • Designers who want to be able to create several versions of sites to test and play with different theme designs in parallel without having to re-install all the same plugins and base themes over and over.

    Features

    Some of the NS Cloner highlight features:

    1. Copies an entire site in seconds
    2. Works in subdomain or subdirectory mode
    3. Copies ALL theme and plugin settings
    4. Copies ALL content and custom post types
    5. Copies ALL media files from original site
    6. ** Advanced validation and preemptive issue detection
    7. ** Robust system configuration and action logging
    8. ** Custom Add-on Architecture
    9. ** All new hook-rich cloning pipeline
    10. ** All new dynamic, responsive interface

    (** New functionality in V3)
