  7. 7. September 1, 2010 Ultimate Wordpress Cloner Blueprint2.0 BENEFITS OF WORDPRESS CLONINGWhen I am using the word Wordpress Cloning, it simply meansblog cloning. Since I love Wordpress for all of my blogs, I amfocusing on the Wordpress only. But this can be done for otherblogging platforms too.Here are the few important benefits of Wordpress cloning: 1. Set-up a New Blog in few minutes: If you have been blogging for any period, you know how much time it takes to set up a new blog.

  10. 10. September 1, 2010 Ultimate Wordpress Cloner Blueprint3.0 WORDPRESS CLONING BLUEPRINTYou might have heard from many bloggers and internetmarketers that cloning is a very technical concept and it is notmeant for the beginners. I agree with this statement and that’sthe reason why I have designed this training course keeping inmind all type of users like beginners, intermediate users andexperts. 10 Copyright © 2010 http://retirementtransformation.com/training All rights reserved.
  11. 11.

  12. 12. September 1, 2010 Ultimate Wordpress Cloner Blueprint4.0 MODULE 1 – PREPARATION MODULEThis is the most important step for the cloning process as youwant to ensure that you are fully satisfied with your MasterBlog before you start any cloning.Have you tested your master blog? Have you uploaded all therequired Wordpress plugins and successfully tested it? Are youhappy with your themes? Since there are many important stepsinvolved with this module, this has been broken down intothree sections. 12 Copyright © 2010 http://retirementtransformation.com/training All rights reserved.
  13. 13. September 1, 2010 Ultimate Wordpress Cloner BlueprintEach box represents each section. So the first section for thismodule is ‘Prepare Master Wordpress Blog’.Section 1 – Prepare Master Wordpress Blog: 1. Take the latest stable Wordpress version and not the beta version. 2. Upload your favorite Wordpress themes. Test your Themes at your Master Blog. If you want to customize your themes, you should do so at the Master Blog. 3. Upload the Plugins folder with your favorite plugins and test the master blog in terms of plugins compatibility, plugins compatibility with the Wordpress version and plugins compatibility with the selected themes. 4. Configure your plugins at the master blog to your satisfaction. 5. Delete the standard pages created by the Wordpress when you install a new Wordpress on your blog e.g. welcome post, about page, and standard links in the blogroll. 13 Copyright © 2010 http://retirementtransformation.com/training All rights reserved.
  14. 14. September 1, 2010 Ultimate Wordpress Cloner Blueprint 6. Create the pages which are commonly used on your blogs i.e. Privacy policy, disclaimer, contact us, etc.Test your master blog on a regular basis and keep fine-tuning itas you learn more about the Wordpress optimization! 14 Copyright © 2010 http://retirementtransformation.com/training All rights reserved.
  15. 15. September 1, 2010 Ultimate Wordpress Cloner BlueprintSection 2 – Backup Master Wordpress Blog Database:Many experienced bloggers and techies have told me thatcreating a blog backup database is not an easy process even forthem. The main reason is due to many technical steps involvedwith the backup.Before I explain how to do the backup, let me clarify this shouldbe done by all the bloggers irrespective of whether they arecreating cloned blogs or not! So I am going to share with yousomething which you can enjoy forever.The main challenge for me is how to simplify the backupprocess and finally I found the solution. The name of thissolution is a Wordpress Plugin called WP-DB-Backup.Here is the download link for this Plugin:  Directly from the Wordpress.org – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-db-backup/  You can also download from the developer’s website directly at http://austinmatzko.com/wordpress- plugins/wp-db-backup/ 15 Copyright © 2010 http://retirementtransformation.com/training All rights reserved.
  16. 16. September 1, 2010 Ultimate Wordpress Cloner Blueprint  You need to install this Plugin either using the FileZilla FTP program or using the admin interface of your blog.  You need to watch the video in the Ultimate Wordpress Cloner Training area to see how to use this Plugin.Section 3 – Activate Master Wordpress Blog Themes, Pluginsand Pages:If you activate the right theme and the right plugins in advancealong with all the personal settings, imagine how much timeyou can save for your new blog! You don’t have to do anythingat your new blog for the activated plugins and theme.There are some plugins which can be a challenge for the cloningand you should do the right settings at the Master Blog butdeactivate it before the cloning. Why this happens? Becausesome plugins require you to modify the .htaccess file or doother modifications or create few files in order to function, thiscan become the challenge while cloning. I have shared about 16 Copyright © 2010 http://retirementtransformation.com/training All rights reserved.
  17. 17. September 1, 2010 Ultimate Wordpress Cloner Blueprintsome of these plugins in the video and you should watch thevideo to learn about it.Since it is very difficult to know what plugins create suchproblems, you need to experiment and put up your own list.Why not share this list at the Forum so that everyone can learnfrom your learning.You can create some standard pages at the Master Blog so thatyou don’t have to create again for your new blog.Here is a list of standard pages for your reference for your use: - About Us - Contact Us - Disclaimer - Privacy Policy - Terms of Service - Sitemap 17 Copyright © 2010 http://retirementtransformation.com/training All rights reserved.
  18. 18. September 1, 2010 Ultimate Wordpress Cloner Blueprint5.0 MODULE 2 – CLONING MODULEThe one time activity in this module is the installation of thefree Software on your server. This software is called Net2FTPsoftware which is a FTP Software not meant for the desktopones but for the server ones.Section 1 – Install a Free Software Net2FTP on Your Server: 18 Copyright © 2010 http://retirementtransformation.com/training All rights reserved.
  19. 19. September 1, 2010 Ultimate Wordpress Cloner Blueprint 1. You should familiarize yourself about this Free Software at http://www.net2ftp.com/homepage/features.html . 2. If you want to check out the installation procedure, you need to go to the installation instruction page which is located at the http://www.net2ftp.com/homepage/installation.html . 3. Now it’s the time to download this Software and you need to download from http://www.net2ftp.com/homepage/download.html . 4. For the installation steps, it’s easier to watch a Video and follow the instructions than writing down every single step. So go and watch the Training Video for this step! 5. The above Software is also available at the developer’s server at Net2FTP.com but very limited bandwidth is available for any task as this is a public service and the developer need to be control the usage.Net2ftp is a Web-based file transfer protocol program whichcan be used to upload the files on your blog hosting server. 19 Copyright © 2010 http://retirementtransformation.com/training All rights reserved.
  20. 20. September 1, 2010 Ultimate Wordpress Cloner BlueprintIt is the same program what FileZilla does for the file transferfrom the desktop to your blog hosting server. FileZilla is adesktop file transfer protocol program.If you don’t install the net2ftp on your server and use theprogram provided by this company on their server, it can be avery time consuming process to transfer the files. Net2ftpproviders have limited the time for use for all the users as it isavailable to all.When it is installed on your own server, it is available to youonly. Hence this is a very fast method to transfer all files fromyour Master Blog to your cloned blog. 20 Copyright © 2010 http://retirementtransformation.com/training All rights reserved.
  21. 21. September 1, 2010 Ultimate Wordpress Cloner BlueprintSection 2 – Copy & Paste Your Master Blog to a New URL:Before you start the cloning, you need to ensure that your newURL is ready for new blog. This means that you need to do theDNS setting, you need to create the contact email address andthe FTP settings so that you can start accessing the new URL.You also need to create the mySQL database settings. I havedone a video for the beginners to show them the above steps.While cloning using the Net2FTP program, you need to ensurethat you do the right commands based on whether you areinstalling your new blog at the shared hosting account or a newhosting account. 21 Copyright © 2010 http://retirementtransformation.com/training All rights reserved.
  22. 22. September 1, 2010 Ultimate Wordpress Cloner Blueprint6.0 MODULE 3 – CUSTOMIZATION MODULEThe main focus of this module is give an identity to the newblog so that the new cloned blog can become an independentblog from the Master Blog.Section 1 – Change the .htaccess File if Applicable: 22 Copyright © 2010 http://retirementtransformation.com/training All rights reserved.
  23. 23. September 1, 2010 Ultimate Wordpress Cloner BlueprintYou don’t have to change the .htaccess file for every case. Ifyou have modified your .htaccess file for your Master Blog dueto Plugins, then you need to update it.Changes required are very minor and you should watch theTraining Video to learn about it.Section 2 – Change the wp-Config file for your New Blog:Again the changes in this step are very simple to follow. Youneed to download the WP-Config file from your new blog toyour desktop using a Desktop FTP program like FileZilla. Onceyou have downloaded, you need to update the WP-Config filewith your mySQL database settings and then upload the fileback on the server. This step is complete now! 23 Copyright © 2010 http://retirementtransformation.com/training All rights reserved.
  24. 24. September 1, 2010 Ultimate Wordpress Cloner BlueprintSection 3 – Import the Updated Database for your New Blog:This is a little bit technical step for the beginners and it is easilyexplained if you watch the video training. The checklist is verythorough and you should follow the steps as it says in thechecklist along with the video training.Section 4 – Customize New Blog Look & Feel:You need to login to your new Blog interface following thevideo training steps and then you need to start activating yourdeactivated Plugins. If you want to change the theme, youshould do it now. If you already kept another theme at theMaster Blog, then it is an easy of simply changing from thetheme interface panel. 24 Copyright © 2010 http://retirementtransformation.com/training All rights reserved.
  25. 25. September 1, 2010 Ultimate Wordpress Cloner BlueprintYou should update the Blog Categories, update the Pages, startnew blog posts, and check that all Plugins settings are right!Keep the cloned blogs consistent so that it becomes easy toupdate and easy to follow for any changes in future!Just update your new blogs for different set of keywords so thatany update is tightly focused on the new set of keywords.Note: All the websites mentioned in this course have been closed asthose were set up to do experiments with various online tricks and itwere not intended to do business but simply verify the concepts.
