How can i make a blog template?

Hello Admin,
May i ask a personal assistance regarding how to make a blog template that once a new member register there will be an automatic option to choose from?

I tried to clone http://www.blog.prosper8dotcom.com/sales-page
then become my "blog template" but the problem occurs....the blog template becomes scratch from the start again instead of my ready made template that i used to finish...

Honestly, i tried this many times, and i am having a hard time to make this thing again to make a blog template....but the result of my blog template is totally a scratch one, meaning not like what i had to finish.

It doesn't happen.

Please help me in regards with this matter... and how can i update my blog templates also if ever there is a need to update???

Please help me...

This is the template that i already did: http://blog.prosper8dotcom.com/sales-page/home/
Then it so happened to transfer into my super admin template: http://blog.prosper8dotcom.com/home/

I was so confused, i just thought everything is okey.

Thanks a lot...

    Hi David!

    I checked the settings for your template, and I see a few things you didn't check that may be causing the issues you're seeing here.

    1. Make sure to check the box next to "Wordpress Settings, Current Theme, and Plugins." This will make sure the new site will look just like the old one, with the same features.
    2. Make sure to check the box next to "Menus" so your new sites made from the template will have the same navigation menu as the template site.
    3. Make sure to check the boxes next to the database tables at the very bottom of the page, under advanced settings, so your new site will have the same functionality as your template.

    Before you adjust these settings, however, you've got some clean up to do on your template site. I highlighted the issues you want to pay attention to, you've got two register pages, two contact pages, and three Home pages. Before you do anything with New Blog Templates, delete the pages that aren't being used by your site. Check the menus, plugins, and widgets on your template site, as well, to make sure what you see on the template site is what you want new sites with that template to look like.

    Once your template site is cleaned up, edit the template in New Blog Templates to check the boxes I mentioned above. Save, and now all new sites made with that template should look just like the template.

    Your settings are already in place to show the template to users who are signing up for a new site, so you're covered there. :slight_smile:

    Thanks for your question! Hope this gets it all cleared up for you.
