How to Duplicate WordPress Post and Pages

Here we are going to install a Duplicate post WordPress plugin. You might think why do I need to install a plugin for duplicating it, why can’t I simply copy and paste the content into the new draft.

Check all the options you would like to get applied for all the new WordPress page and posts cloned as above.

In the next category Prefix, suffix.

Generally, if you directly click the clone button, it would add one more post or page in the dashboard with the same name. This is the place where we can use Prefix an suffix to differentiate the original and newly created one.

The prefix will add provided word before the post or page title, and suffix will do it at the end of it.

I prefer to add a prefix as Duplicate so that I can keep an earlier version intact and work on the new one. Provide those according to your need, and finally hit the Save Changes button.

Now you are ready to clone an existing WordPress post easily. Fortunately, to make it easier for the webmaster, the option is been provided in plenty of section.

  • Main Posts Section

  • Front-End Editor

Clone – This will create a copy of the current post.

New Draft – Clicking on this will create a copy and take you to the WordPress Editor directly.  The process would be same on the WordPress pages as well.

Isn’t it simple creating duplicate or clone of the WordPress post and pages in just one hit? This will surely be going to save much of the time instead of copy-pasting and adding the other aspects data manually.
