Hello team, looks to be a great plugin in the drought of good multisite plugins. A few queries: 1) the main domain multisite installation has over 300 pages, custom post types, over 2000 images etc. Does cloning to a sub-domain site do a clean job of replicating everything? I don’t want anything in the target site? Hope it won’t impact/create clash of data in the source main domain site. Pls confirm 2) does the cloning then would mean literally doubling of images in the library? The current main site is almost 4GB. Will cloning double the size of wordpress installation. My concern is we have to create 7 child (sub-domain installations). 3) lastly, does the developer license acting as a unlimited domain license? Asking as my agency can officially use this for any new clients in the future. Thanks in advance.


Thank you, it is just me, no team :).

The plugin does not clone the main site! It currently can only make copies of sub-sites.

Copying a site replicates everything, yes. Also replaces mentions of URLs and links with the correct domain. Of course there is no way of knowing if it will work properly with every single plugin or theme in the world. Some of them do some weird things. If someone notices a problem, they can report it to me, so I can find a way to fix it. Also all images will be copied and they will take double the size on the server, yes.

About the license, I am not really familiar with these stuff. I am just using the pre-made licenses that Envato offers. If you are asking about the extended license, that is $89 for my plugin, you can read about it here:

You can also contact Envato here to ask them about license related questions:

Hello Nikolaydev, can the cleaning function be used for stand alone sites? Given your plugin title doesn’t seem to be case but trying my luck. thks.

Hi. You mean sites that are not multisites? No, the plugin can only be activated on a multisite.

What do you need exactly, maybe I can help you somehow to do it?

Hi, I will create a multisite but I want to ask you; if one subsite traffic is so much higher than others that can effect to other sites load time? if effects there is a solution for it? via server side or in multisite?

Hi. I don’t think that having a multisite would slow things down more than having the same single sites on one hosting. So I guess just have enough server resources for all sites.

“Bulk delete leftover database tables” this is based off of the table prefix right?

Yeah, and the site ID is in the prefix and we can check if the site exists. If it does not, then these tables are just from some plugins that were active before the site was permanently deleted.

Hey! Can I create a default site (including page content, theme settings etc…), which is setup for the customer on registering?

Hello. The super administrator can choose one site (except the main site) that will be fully copied (including content and settings) into newly created sites automatically on site creation. So yes, if that is what you mean.
