I have to do my website over and I want to know which is better to do a clone or to do a child?

I would refer to SurfsideBob's answer.

I know that some people here will suggest WP Clone. However, it hasn't been updated in 12 months and is only tested up to WP 4.7.8, so I wouldn't use it. https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-clone-by-wp-academy/

If you're looking to duplicate or migrate a site, which I am doing today, I'd recommend Duplicator, which was updated 2 days ago and is tested up to our current WP 4.9.1. https://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicator/

That being said, when starting a new site, it is important to create a child theme. I use Child Theme Configurator, which was last updated when WP 4.9.1 was released and is fully tested on this version. More info here Hope this helps! :-)

Thank you Bob, I will check it out and see which method will fit my needs best Thanks again stawhu (Scott)

I have a similar issue and am wondering whether to import an existing site which I already built into WA as a sub-domain of one which I already created at WA, then integrate and develop it. The existing external site has no security, but the WA domain will allow me to keep it secure. Alan

Looking for weigh ins on this one. Feel a child has more quality But...

Thanks Mike, Will be doing some checking on this, Scott

I am not familiar with both options, but you can ask MarionBlack, she knows all about this

Thank you Loes I will check with her, Scott

I am still having trouble with my Reply box in personal message to turn on. Do you know how to get the reply box in personal message to turn on when I put the cursor in and cl

Are you talking about the "green" button that says "reply"? It should automatically click for you. I would contact support if you can't get it working.

Thank you, I have been in touch with them about this stawhu (scott)

I need to send a message to someone not on my follow or following lists. How can I send a message to someone because my reply button is not live on my private message ?

What Marion says is 100%. This is how to do it, in case you don't know. ;-) At the search bar (top of this page), type @TheirUsername. When you get to their profile, click on "Private Message".
Hope it helps!

Thank you for your response to my question about contact a person without having a profile, It seems easy enough , I sent off the response to the address I was looking for. Thank you also, for your help Scott

When I want to initiate a private message conversation I go to the person's profile page and click on Private Message.

Hi Marion ; I did not have access to the profile , so that is why I needed to know how else she might be reached. I got it now Thank you for you help, I am waiting for a reply from support about the reply box not responding. You are a gem thanks again, Scott

Are you blocked by this person, if so, they can send you PM's, but you can not reply

Hi Loes ,I do not think I am blocked because this person reached out to me in an attempt to volunteer help with the problem of the sentence spacing on the about me page that I am still trying to get fixed.
Also , a new problem has crept into replies like this one to you. I can no longer make paragraphs in replies here. Oh, I can make paragraphs by starting the paragraph after the last line of previous paragraph and then using the space bar to push the first line to where the new paragraph is supposed to go, two lines down.

When it is sent ,something magical happens, it is turned into a block as one paragraph. Now, I have set three paragraphs in this reply.I will send it to you and we will see what happens. Thank you for your concern. Let me know if you have any ideas about what is going on Scott

Well, I got two paragraphs, out of it but there should have been a space between 1st and 2nd just like 2nd and 3rd. It is strange Scott

I think you need to contact Carson for this, he's the man for glitches at this forum

Thank you for the direction, I guess I will have to try Carson. I have had a couple of talks with people about this and you are the first to recommend Carson Thanks again, Scott

I cannot answer my private messages with quik reply. It seems to be turned off . How do I get it turned on?

Don't you have the reply button at the bottom?

Is this the same for all your private messages or just from one person?

Hi Marion: The box itself will not respond to the cursor when I click it to reply. So, the green button is only good after the message has been typed. Scott

Hi again Marion: My reply works here on open messages. But not on my Personal Message reply box Scott

I've just sent you a private message so see if it works this time.

Hi Marion : No I was not able to respond on the private message box . It will not turn on!! Scott

Have you contacted Site Support? If that doesn't work then try wealthyaffiliate.com/contact and report the problem.

Hi Marion; Yes I've contacted site support 2x regarding this issue and have not received a reply. I will try the wealthy affiliate .com/ contact right now Thank you Scott

Hi Marion thank you for that suggestion I left a message for the contact . Also, Would you know How I might contact the person that left a PM for me ?, I have the WA name but nothing else as he was not aware that my PM reply box was out of order Thank you, Scott

Are you able to send a private message from his profile page? If not then leave a message on his profile page and he should find it there.

Start typing in his WA username in the search box at the top of this page to find his profile page. If that doesn't work then put @ before the username.
