    Many thanks! This is the second time very recently that this idea has crossed our radar. With our new V3 architecture I don’t think it would be too hard to add to the existing Content add-on, or even a new add-on if we starting thinking of additional features to combine with it.

    Well, if you want an additional feature, take a look at the problem faced by someone who creates a landing page (either for themselves or maybe they sell it). Getting that landing page into a site is not easy. You've got a serious issue with the template having to be the same if it's going to work, right? Maybe not considering that there is a plugin that will help with this problem so this sort of thing can be done with the right code with this as proof: https://wordpress.org/plugins/jonradio-multiple-themes/.

    So, if you could copy/paste a page from a development site into another site with a different theme, then you could create a landing page in one location and paste it into another.

    If someone were a landing page developer, they could sell a landing page and then "export" the page to be copied into the new site.

    This would solve a LOT of problems for people who develop landing pages and have clients who are WordPress users or WordPress users who have an existing multisite and then create a new landing page that they want to spread across their network.

    Thanks! We have talked about this exact idea internally. Our current thought about the approach we might take is to have a Cloner archive format that would include the Cloner settings + the resulting data in a single file. Instead of executing the instructions with the data it would store both. Then to “restore” the archive, you point the Cloner at the archive, it reads the settings and plays back the execution with the data in the file as if it had cloned a live site in that network (whether or not it was actually there). The physical files are probably the biggest sticking point on the entire thing as that could lead to enormous archive files depending on the total size of the site(s) backed up. Anyway, we’re brainstorming that idea through. Input is much appreciated, especially if you have better ideas on implementation approach. But this kind of…
