Is there a way to copy an entire blog?

    I’d like to create another site exactly like the one I have (I love all my settings, theme, customizations, etc.). Of course, it would have a different name.

    So is there a way to just “copy site” and copy the entire thing – not just a page or post?

    Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is dnamystery.wordpress.com.

    Hi there,

    I’d like to create another site exactly like the one I have (I love all my settings, theme, customizations, etc.). Of course, it would have a different name.

    It seems that you want to create another site and you would want to transfer the contents of your old site to the new site.

    You can import the contents from your old site, whether it be just pages, posts or images but it would not be possible for you to copy the whole website.

    To transfer your contents:

    1. You would have to Export the contents from your old site. Make sure you are in your Old site and go to Tools > Export
    How to export site contents:

    2. After exporting the contents from your, go into your New site. Click on Tools >Import
    How to import site contents:

    Hope this helps.
