    Hi,
    I am looking for a good WP Plugin to help me with cloning blogs/plugin setting to other sites. Something like ghosting it.

    If possible from a central place, if not I would not mind I do it for each site.

    I am not sure if backup/restore plugin will work.

    Any thoughts?

    Check out www.slurpablog.com. I saw this guy's post on WF. I bought the book but the full package has a blank blog also. Clear way to clone blogs. I found it useful.

    I have just been looking at two options: wp cloner and wordpress cloner. Both claim to clone a complete install including plugin configurations. I have just installed wordpress cloner which was $90 ish. Can't get it to work at the mo and the support is pretty much non existant. The other one looks not much better on the info front but if I can get this one working it looks ideal.

    Thanks for everyone's feedback. It seems, there is not much of an option, Here are what I have so far:

    - slurpablog.com ; I am not, if it does it.
    - wpmanagerdx ; May do it
    - wp cloner and wordpress cloner

    If you dont mind me asking what host are you using it with, and please let us know if you get it working, and how it is.

    I also been looking at it but it doesn't have the best reviews

    why do you need a plugin for this?

    Why not just copy the database, or am I missing something here?

    I do not think backup and restore of the DB works?

    Wpcloner and wpmanagerdx and the rest only work with sub domains.

    I am having an application built for pre config wordpress installs onto domains.

    I pulled the trigger and grabed this the other day, as i have a ton of site i need to copy the plugins, files,and settings for.

    I still have not been able to clone even 1 site, I spoke with support a few times the first day and they explained in order for them to test the script i need to install 2 default WP blogs and give them login info.

    Which i sent soon the after since then i have not received a reply or heard anything from support.

    Hoping to hear back soon or i may just asked for refund and start going at it manually

    Just had a custom addon made for wpmangerdx to do this. I can make 1000 blogs with wp robot, keywords, adsense, etc. including all plugin settings in just a few minutes.

    Now if I can find a vps cheap enough that can handle all these blogs Ill be in business.

    I have been using backup buddy
    Code:
    h[B]xx[/B]p://plugi[B]DELETE[/B]nbu[B]THIS[/B]ddy[B]DOT[/B]com/purchase/bac[B]THIS[/B]kupbu[B]ALSO[/B]ddy/
    . It works perfectly, I copy the clone to the new uri, change the config file and I'm up and running. We had an authority ecommerce site, we switched it over to a blog with this method. One minute it's an ecommerce site, 5 minutes later it is a blog with posts dating back many years.

    BTW this is the first post I felt I could contribute something so hello everyone.

    Here is what I did for plugins; need to be able to understand the source codes though.

    Look through the source codes and find where it sets up the options and database during install. Manually hardcode all my options and settings I want for every new blog. I have a base WP install folder I copy to the new domain, change 3-4 things manually since they are different for each blog, activate theme, active all plugins and I'm done. Just have to take the time before hand to setup your environment.

    I found a new niche I wanted to try out last night and the time it took to purchase the domain and setup the AB was about 30 minutes total.
