This plugin allows to clone a post or page, or edit it as a new draft.
If you find this useful, please consider donating whatever sum you choose, even just 10 cents. It’s been downloaded thousands of times: just a few cents from every user would help me develop the plugin and improve support.
How it works:
In ‘Edit Posts’/’Edit Pages’, you can click on ‘Clone’ link below the post/page title: this will immediately create a copy and return to the list.
NEW! In ‘Edit Posts’/’Edit Pages’, you can select one or more items, then choose ‘Clone’ in the ‘Bulk Actions’ dropdown to copy them all at once.
In ‘Edit Posts’/’Edit Pages’, you can click on ‘New Draft’ link below the post/page title.
On the post edit screen, you can click on ‘Copy to a new draft’ above “Cancel”/”Move to trash”.
While viewing a post as a logged in user, you can click on ‘Copy to a new draft’ as a dropdown link under “Edit Post” in the admin bar.
3, 4 and 5 will lead to the edit page for the new draft: change what you want, click on ‘Publish’ and you’re done.
There is also a template tag, so you can put it in your templates and clone your posts/pages from the front-end. Clicking on the link will lead you to the edit page for the new draft, just like the admin bar link.
In the Options page under Settings it is now possible to choose what to copy, and you can also set a prefix (or a suffix) to place before (or after) the title of the cloned post/page.
You can also restrict the plugin to certain post types, and allow only some roles to clone posts or pages.
If you’re a plugin developer, I suggest to read the section made just for you under “Other Notes”, to ensure compatibility between your plugin(s) and mine.
Thanks for all the suggestions, bug reports, translations and donations, they’re frankly too many to be listed here!
