Duplicate a WordPress Page or Post

WordPress by default doesn’t have a duplicate button to create a copy from a page or post. Well, in this tutorial we are going to teach you how to duplicate a WordPress page or post just with a single click.

What we are going to do?

You should install the Yoast Duplicate Post plugin from the WordPress plugins repository on our website to create duplicate pages or posts.

Introduce Options

You have some options such as Clone, New Draft, and Rewrite & Republish.

  • Clone : Simply create a duplicate post and the post will not open in the editor.
  • New Draft : Create a duplicate post and open in editor.
  • Rewrite & Republish: You can now start rewriting your post in this duplicate of the original post. If you click “Republish”, this rewritten post will replace the original post.
