Cloner Plugin Doesn't Work on subsite of multisite

We have a multisite Wordpress and are trying to use the Cloner plugin to copy sites. It works great on our dev site which is, but when we try to clone a site on our production,, we encounter issues. We are trying to copy a site to It creates the new site, but them gives an error when it tries to start copying data. It appears to be trying to make the new site and then it can't find it to copy. Is there a setting we are missing to make this work?

    Hey cbenson583,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    When setting up Multisite it's actually recommended that you remove www from the url as it can cause conflicts such as this. However, I'm going to flag our developer here to see if we can provide a fix as I'm sure this will affect other members as well.

    Developers can sometimes take a little longer to reply back as they have a lot of dev responsibilities. In the meantime, let me know if you have any further questions.

    All the best,

    Hi @cbenson583

    Attached to this post there's a zipped file. Please, unzip it and replace the current wp-content/plugins/cloner/admin/cloner-admin-clone-site.php.

    Remember to make a DB backup if you're in a production site, just in case.

    If everything works, let me know and I'll add the code to the next version.
