[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Duplicating a post or page enables you to work on it without changing the original.
We’ll teach you how to rapidly clone a WordPress page or post with all of its settings in this article.
Why Should I Clone or Duplicate a WordPress Page/Post?
For example, a sales page with a lot of information that can be reused, or a previous article that can be expanded into a new one.
You might now manually copy and paste the post or page’s contents into a new draught. This does not, however, transfer your featured picture, post settings, SEO settings, or other metadata.
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a simpler way to clone a post or page with all of its settings and content? With this method, you may simply modify a post and begin working on it right away.
Let’s have a look at how to clone a WordPress post or page with a single click.
Make a duplicate of a WordPress post or page
You must first install and activate the Duplicate Post plugin. It’s free and easy to use.
After activation, go to the Posts > All Posts page. Below each post title, you’ll see two new links to clone or create a new draught.
Clicking on ‘Clone’ will just produce a duplicate post without opening it in the post editor.
The ‘New Draft’ option duplicates the post and opens the duplicate version in the post editor, allowing you to begin working on it right away.
The same choices are available for pages as well.
The duplicate post plugin performs admirably. However, if you want to use it primarily to update already published posts, there is a better way to do so.
Changing the Settings of the Duplicate Post Plugin
The duplicate post plugin works right away and by default supports posts and pages.
You may also configure the plugin to support custom post kinds, restrict to user roles, and select what to replicate when making a duplicate.
Let’s have a look at all of these options.
To configure plugin settings, navigate to the Settings » Duplicate Post page.
There are three tabs on the settings page. The first tab allows you to select what to duplicate when producing a duplicate.
Most websites should be fine with the default settings. You can, however, check the items you wish to duplicate and uncheck the stuff you don’t want to be copied.
The next step is to navigate to the permissions tab.
The plugin allows the administrator and editor user roles to produce duplicate posts by default.
It also provides the duplicate post feature for post types such as posts and pages.
If you use custom post types on your website, those post kinds will be displayed here. You have the option of enabling the duplicate post feature for those post kinds as well.
Choose where to display your clone post links by clicking the Display tab. The plugin displays them by default on the post list, edit screen, and admin bar.
Remember to click the Save Changes button to save your changes.
It’s one of the WordPress Plugins that most people would want to use it. It Saves time, is easy to use, and convenient and it’s free.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
