Hi Karen,

We don't have a feature where you can copy an entire site in your account or to another account. To do so, you would need to manually recreate it.

If it helps, we do have a feature where you can copy a page - you'll notice a down-arrow next to the 'Save' button when you're in the site builder, click on it and then click on 'Save As'.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

I would reaaaaaaaaaally love to see this feature offered soon where I could make a site, and then duplicate it with a different domain name, and change what I want on it. I would contribute $$ to the development of this feature and it sounds like others probably would too.

Hi Mike,
I can see how this would be a great feature for Yola to have, thanks for letting us know this is something you are interested in seeing. I can't say if this is something we will be looking at as a feature, but it will definitely be considered.

I can't imagine it would be so difficult to implement this feature. All you're doing is copying a folder full of files. In other words, if Yola allows me to download the folder structure of my site for backup, then it shouldn't be a big stretch to just copy that folder structure to a new site. This would give Yola a big win over other sitebuilders. I was going to use Moonfruit, but decided against it because they don't let you backup. However, they do have a copy site facility.

Hello, I'd like to know the status of the site duplication feature? I've been a subscriber to Yola for a while now and haven't heard anything about this. It will make creating my sites much easier!

Hi Mike C

We have not planned development for a site duplication feature on Yola for the foreseeable future. However, I will pass your question on to our product developers for consideration.

Thank you
Nazlie

Nazlie, I second that this would be a very handy feature and would not imagine it would be too hard to create.

I have a business need for this feature as well. I need to be able to clone websites for different sales representitives. Is there any plans in the works to develop this feature?

Hello Sarah

We have not made any plans for this as of yet. I'm sorry that I don't have better news for you.

Hi BritSAL

Unfortunately it's not possible yet to copy or duplicate a whole Yola website. We are aware that some of our users request this as a feature and may take it into consideration.

here's another vote to duplicate a site, OR copy a page from one site to another.

Hi johnywhy,

We are aware of this feature request and may take it into consideration, but at this time it is not something we are developing.
