How to Clone WordPress Widget

Have you ever want to clone a WordPress widget?

If your answer is "Yes," then this post is for you.

Recently, I decided to create custom sidebars for Technology Hint. I am using MyThemeShop Schema theme, and it has "custom sidebar" feature.

If you want to have the custom sidebar on your blog and your theme does not have this option, then you can try this plugin (I did not try it. If you tried this, let us know your experiences in the Comment section).

While creating custom sidebars, I need to duplicate many widgets along with its settings. Manually duplicating widgets is a time-consuming and irritating task.

So, I took the easy and time-saving way… WordPress plugins.
