To duplicate pages in WordPress, you can start by installing a suitable plugin, such as the Post Duplicator or Duplicate Page plugin. After activation, go to your Pages section and hover over the page you wish to copy. Click the “Duplicate” option, and a new draft with the same title, layout, and metadata will be created.
Don’t forget to customise the new draft’s title, excerpt, featured image, and meta description to avoid confusion and maintain proper workflow. You may also adjust the tags, categories, and custom post type as needed. For Divi users, you may clone and modify existing templates for conveniency.
For post duplication, the process is similar to page duplication. Navigate to the Posts section, hover over the post you want to duplicate, and click the “Duplicate” option. A new draft with the same content, status, tags, categories, and metadata will be generated.
To differentiate your new draft, make necessary changes to the details like title, excerpt, featured image, and meta description. Additionally, custom post types and post formats can be adjusted to suit your preferences.
To perform bulk duplications, first, go to the Posts or Pages section of your WordPress dashboard, then select the items you wish to duplicate. Click on the “Bulk Actions” dropdown menu and choose the “Duplicate” option.
Before publishing the new duplicated posts or pages, make sure to review and customise the title, excerpt, featured image, and meta description. It is essential to maintain good SEO practices and avoid duplicate content issues.
Please note that with some themes and plugins, the duplication process might not copy the page likes and display functions precisely. In such cases, you may need to manually adjust the settings or add code snippets to your
functions.php file. By utilising the
wp_insert_post() function, you can create custom duplication processes and manage permissions for rewriting and republishing landing pages.
