How Do I Clone a Webflow?

Cloning a Webflow website can be a useful technique when you want to create a duplicate of an existing site or use it as a starting point for a new project. In this tutorial, we will explore the step-by-step process of cloning a Webflow site.

Step 1: Accessing Webflow Editor

To clone a Webflow website, you need to have access to the Webflow Editor. Login to your Webflow account and navigate to the project that you want to clone.

Step 2: Opening the Project in Designer Mode

Once you are in the project dashboard, click on the “Open in Designer” button. This will launch the project in the Webflow Designer mode where you can make changes to your site’s design and structure.

Step 3: Cloning Your Project

In the Designer mode, go to the top-right corner of the interface and click on the “Clone” button. A dropdown menu will appear with two options – “Clone Project” and “Export Code”. Select “Clone Project”.


Before proceeding with cloning, make sure you are aware that this action will create an exact copy of your project, including all its assets, styles, and structure. Any changes made in the cloned project will not affect the original one.

Step 4: Configuring Your Cloned Project

After clicking on “Clone Project”, you’ll be prompted to provide a name for your cloned project. Choose an appropriate name that helps you identify its purpose or any modifications you plan to make.

  • Name: Enter a unique name for your cloned project.
  • Description: Optionally, you can add a brief description to provide more context.

Once you’ve filled in the details, click on the “Clone Project” button to initiate the cloning process.

Step 5: Accessing Your Cloned Project

Webflow will create a new project with the specified name and redirect you to its dashboard. From here, you can start customizing the cloned website by modifying its design, content, or functionality.


The cloned project will have the same structure and styles as the original one. However, any dynamic data or CMS collections used in the original project will not be transferred to the cloned version. You’ll need to recreate them if required.

Step 6: Customizing Your Cloned Website

Now that you have your cloned project, you can edit it just like any other Webflow project. Use the Designer mode to modify your site’s layout, typography, colors, and other visual elements. You can also add new components and pages based on your requirements.

Step 7: Publishing Your Cloned Website

Once you are satisfied with your changes and ready to launch your cloned website, click on the “Publish” button in the top-right corner of the Designer mode interface. Webflow will generate a unique URL where your site will be accessible online.


  • Paid Plans: If you are using a free Webflow plan, your cloned site’s URL will include a subdomain of Upgrading to a paid plan allows you to use a custom domain for your website.
  • CMS Hosting: If your original project had CMS hosting, you’ll need to configure the CMS settings for your cloned project separately.

That’s it! You have successfully cloned a Webflow website. Now you can make any modifications or enhancements to your cloned project without affecting the original site.

Happy cloning!
