    I know there are seemingly as many Wordpress site cloners out there these days as there are themes - WP Twin, Manage WP, etc. I'm looking for a specific feature, and wondered if anybody had seen it before I went and wasted my money on a dozen products that don't do what I need.

    I'd really like to find one that's capable of making changes to each site as it creates it. For example, if I was making a site for local dog trainers, I'd create the site as [City] [State] Dog Trainers. When cloning the site, I'd get the option to replace every instance of [City] with Chicago, and [State] with Illinois. This could be site titles, pages, posts, etc.

    I don't know if this exists, or if it's even possible, but it would make a cloner much more useful - imagine just being able to change a couple words, and have it update the whole site. I can always get a VA to make the updates for me, but automated is definitely faster & cheaper.

    Anybody have any ideas?

    hi
    I have just started using weptwin and to start with it cloned a couple of sites, one being a wp ecommerce site, but then stopped cloning products. Their support I think has gone underground as no replies to my calls for help.
    It is easy to use, but then its my first ever clone tool. I am now looking around as I do like good support.
