Cloner create_empty_blog deprecated in WP 4.5


I'm trying to use your Cloner plugin to clone a site in a MultiSite install on my local dev environment but I'm getting the notice "create_empty_blog is deprecated since version 4.4 with no alternative available".

We're running our current site with the following:
WordPress 4.5.3
Cloner 1.7.2

Is there anything can we do to resolve this as quickly as possible as we need to launch the new site early next week.

    Hi Peter,
    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    Yes I could replicate this issue on my own local site too on a same setup. Its depreciated but not removed completely. That means we can still use this function until it gets removed. This is just notice for developer and I will pass it along so it could be fixed in future versions of this plugin.

    To make it work, what you need to do is set the WP_DEBUG flag to false from true in wp-config.php.

    Open up wp-config.php file, find the following line of code:
    define('WP_DEBUG', true);

    ...and replace it with this one:
    define('WP_DEBUG', false);

    Thanks a lot for bringing it to our attention and have a nice day :slight_smile:

    Best Regards,
