How to Clone a Help Site

 

ProProfs Knowledge Base provides users various features to experiment with a help site. If you want to test new settings on your help site, you can easily do so by cloning your site.

 

You can clone a website if you want to translate your website into a different language to provide native support in a particular region.

 

Cloning a help site becomes useful when you are:

 

  • Creating another version to experiment on without impacting the original site

  • Translating it into different languages to enable self-support for a wider audience

 

How to Clone a Site

 

Step 1: Head to Sites in the header menu and click Manage Sites from the drop-down list.

 

Go to Manage Sites in the Sites menu

 

Step 2: From the list of sites, click the Copy/Clone icon for which you want to create a copy.

 

Click the Copy Icon

 

Step 3: In the overlay, enter the site URL and name of the clone site. Also, choose if you wish to copy every page from the original site or a select few.

 

Select Pages to Copy

 

Step 4: Click Create to finalize your new clone site.
