Elemental Cloner

Developed by

Version 9 Ready!
I have lost count of the number of times I have used Elemental Cloner to create a starting point for a new theme. …


Inspired by the Cloneamental project, Elemental Cloner will clone and package the core Concrete5 theme and make it GDPR friendly.

  • Make as many new Elemental-based themes as you like
  • Customize the name, description, and thumbnail
  • Load Google Fonts directly from your server to comply with GDPR
  • Package the result

PHP 8 ready!

All settings are optional really so all you need is a handle and 1 click et voilà! You have a new theme that you can customize the hell out of.

Oh and because you will be creating totally independent themes you won't lose anything if I update this package.


How does that work?

Glad you asked.

  1. Go to dashboard/pages/elemental_cloner. Everything will be pretty self-explanatory.
  2. Alternatively, you can type "elemental cloner" or simply "cloner" in your intelligent search box and you'll find the tool quickly.
  3. Your new themes will be in application/themes/your_new_theme_handle
  4. Unless you package it in which case it will be in the packages directory

You can also find the package on Github in a public repo. Feel free to comment, contribute code and/or ideas, lavish praise...
