CopyPaste Cross-site
Updated over a week ago

This feature is deprecated because it is now available in Elementor. You can however activate the legacy features from > Features > Legacy

Copy your contents from a Site to another with a different domain with the simplicity of a classic Copy/Paste operation. To use this feature you need it installed on both sites.


Perfect integration with native interface and functionality.
It supports native Copy function on all Elements:

  • Widgets;

  • Columns;

  • Sections;

  • All Page Content.

All Browsers support the Copy function.

After copying in your System Clipboard you will find a JSON text, the format on Elementor store all page contents.

You can also save it in a Text file as a backup if you'd like to paste it later.

In Context Menu you will find two voices:

  • Paste from Clipboard;

  • Paste Style from Clipboard;

Paste from Clipboard

Click on the voice "Paste from Clipboard" to paste it into the new page.

If you can Paste over an existent Widget, the new content will be added after it.

After the process, you need to save and refresh the page.

Paste Style from Clipboard

Clicking on Paste Style from Clipboard you can replicate the exact style you previously set.

Browser Compatibility and Limitations

For security reasons imposed by the Browser, the DIRECT Paste operations are permitted only on HTTPS domains and Localhost sites and the browser must support new ClipBoard API.

The actual situation:

  • COPY WORKS on ALL Browsers;

  • MANUAL PASTE WORKS on ALL Browsers that don't support ClipBoard API;

  • DIRECT PASTE WORKS on Chrome, Opera, Chromium but many others will be ready shortly.


Only on supported Browsers on Paste action the browser, only at the first time you use it, will prompt a message to ask access to your Clipboard, you need to allow it to continue.


For Browsers that won't support direct access to Clipboard data or on a non-secure site, there is one more step.
โ€‹Paste the Clipboard content into the Textarea with the classic procedure (click with DX on the Textarea and then Paste, or CTRL+V) and then click on the PASTE button.
