Release of WP Staging Pro 2.4.5

Prepare Multisites

Today, we released WP Staging Pro 2.4.5 with a lot of new useful features and important bug fixes.
That version also contains some preparations for the upcoming version which allows cloning of WordPress multisite.

For instance, WP Staging Pro 2.4.5 allows you to define the maximum file size to copy. From now on you can specify how big the file size can be during the file copying process. This is useful if your live site contains videos or other big files which you need to have on the staging site as well:

Maximum File Size
Maximum File Size

Another small but often requested feature is the visibility of the date when a staging site has been created or updated. You find that new information in the list of available staging sites:

Now WP Staging also contains custom upload folders. So if you moved your default upload folder from wp-content/uploads to another location WP Staging can handle that and detects the correct upload location automatically, now.

Another news is that WP Staging supports the popular WordPress plugin revolution slider. Previous versions had issues with correct search & replacements of image paths of the revolution slider in the database. So as a result the slides were not showing correctly on the staging site after cloning.

Several other small tweaks and improvements were made so its recommended to update the plugin as soon as possible.
