      Hey Kiran, I hope you know that this functionality is for the licensed users. May I know which license you are using and what error you see after following these steps?

    Is there a way to duplicate a slider within the same site?



      May 2, 2018

      Hi ๐Ÿ™‚ There are some plugins that duplicate posts and pages. So you could try this. If you use the Defaults Addon, you could just use that to create your “base” settings for all sliders and then all you would have to do is add your images ๐Ÿ™‚

        Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately this doesn’t work when the plugin is bundled with a theme.
