Easiest way to duplicate 99% my website

I want to duplicate 99% of the content of my website www.belfastmh.co.uk

The only items I will change are the logo at the top to Dublin Materials Handling and the prices will be in Euros. Everything else I need to mirror on to a new site set up on Yola which will point at a different web address.

Is there a reasonably straightforward way of doing this like copying the HTML across? I can create the background and logo and using the CSS Style overrides I already have I can make the menu look the same.

Being able to duplicate a site on to a separate Yola domain would be a very useful feature.

Hi Graham

You have a point. Unfortunately it's currently not possible with Yola to create a duplicate of a whole website. It's on our list of feature requests.

You could do this by copying the source code of every page and paste them into HTML Widgets. However, I cannot recommend doing that because you will then only be able to edit your elements within the HTML Widgets which gives you less of an overview and requires advanced coding knowledge.

I'm sorry that I can't offer you a comfortable solution this time. I personally wouldn't mind to recreate a whole website, e.g. to create my site in a different language. You can open your Yola account in two browsers at the same time and then copy/paste all custom code you have across.

Remember that you can also create a kind of default page with the elements which appear on each page, and then use the "Save page as" function from the upper menu bar of the Sitebuilder. This way you can at least create identical duplicates of single pages.

There is a reason why it's called "to build a website", and you can't duplicate a house, can you? I'm kidding :-). I hope that you will still be able to enjoy copying and recreating your website as your Sitebuilder Tools make it easy for you.
