    Hi all,
    I have found a website that I like the look of and I noticed we both use the same wordpress theme. Is it possible for me to copy and paste the design/layout of their site easily to mine?

    Not possible without screwing with code. You would need some plugin that's created specifically for copying the same theme.

    If you guys use the same theme just recreate the design. Wordpress is not difficult for endusers.

    If you both have the same theme and theirs is different layout, it can be done via a child theme. Are they using a page builder plugin? Does your theme have layout options? They may be doing it with css, so it's possible. Get yourself localhost ( free ) and add your theme, then try different methods.

    Practically, one WP theme can have 100s of landing page designs / layouts. However, you can have same presentation or design but can't simply copy and paste.
