Make a “copy” of an existing blog

Someone asked me how they could make a “copy” of their existing blog. This is easy if you use WordPress export and import.
Here at University of Bergen, people can create their own blogs at:
https://b.uib.no/sso/

After creating the new blog, then posts, pages and other stuff can be exportet from the old one under Tools – Export.

Save the exported XML file somewhere on your computer.

Next thing is to activate the WordPress Importer plugin in the new blog that you just created. It’s done under Dashboard – Plugins (search for keyword Import).

Then, import the xml file under Tools – Import

To make it maybe clearer, I also made this video:
