Dear Forum Members:

I have a site in Open Element and it's great. Many thanks for a fantastic experience.

I would like to clone my entire site. I need 6 websites total and I want to use my original site (www.GPSTimers.com) as the basis of each new site (they are different brands of the same technology).

From what I found online, the process to clone an entire site is to use Windows Explorer to copy and rename the entire file. I've done that and renamed it "Clone Test". When I open Clone Test it seems to be opening and displaying just fine.

Next I think I should go through the Preferences and change attributes such as Site Name and other information in there.

I was wondering if someone who is infinitely proficient with Open Element could provide me a list of the things I need to change in order to pull this off. Anyone?

Many thanks again for providing a fantastic program.

Hi, 

Prior to clone your site I would consider the fact that it's not Responsive.

The major part of WEB users moved from PC to mobile devices so Google is rating sites accordingly so your ranking will suffer from it.

A responsive site reacts to screen size.  Your site doesn't, it will be a handicap.



That being written,

To clone and rename a site, 

use explorer to copy and rename the site directory once OE is closed

Preference, General, Website Name

General, Publishing, Configuration, set correct parameters

You may also have to adjust metatags.

Page, SEO info and Metas, Metadata

Page, SEO info and Metas, Search phrases

Your text size on mobile devices will be the major issue

If you haven't set the metatags you should do it prior to clone your site

By curiosity, what is the maximum electrical load that can be directly controlled by your device?

Where are you seeing that?

Off the shelf 120-277VAC unit is 1800W.

But we do custom work all the time. We can make pretty much anything you need.

That's interesting. Thank you.

It shows up as a keyword for Google AdWords.
I haven't run AdWords in years, but when I did...
