Cross Domain Copy Paste

Build pages faster by copying and pasting Page Builder widgets and rows between websites.

Requirements

To use this addon, go to SiteOriginPremium Addons and activate the Cross Domain Copy Paste Addon.

The Cross Domain Copy Paste Addon provides two techniques for transferring your Page Builder content between sites: the Browser Clipboard Technique and the Browser Storage Technique. The Browser Clipboard Technique is the most straightforward approach. While the Browser Storage Technique offers a faster workflow, it depends on browser permissions, which can sometimes be challenging to configure. Let’s explore how each technique functions.
