Yoast Duplicate Post

Beschrijving

This plugin allows users to clone posts of any type, or copy them to new drafts for further editing.

How it works:

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. In ‘Edit Posts’/’Edit Pages’, you can click on ‘New Draft’ link below the post/page title.

  4. On the post edit screen, you can click on ‘Copy to a new draft’ above “Cancel”/”Move to trash” or in the admin bar.

  5. While viewing a post as a logged in user, you can click on ‘Copy to a new draft’ 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.

Duplicate Post has many useful settings to customize its behavior and restrict its use to certain roles or post types. Check out the extensive documentation on yoast.com and our developer docs.

FAQ

The plugin doesn’t work, why?

First, check your version of WordPress: the plugin is not supposed to work on old versions anymore. Make sure also to upgrade to the last version of the plugin!

Then try to deactivate and re-activate it, some user have reported that this fixes some problems.

Pay also attention to the “Permissions” tab in the Settings: make sure the plugin is enabled for the desired roles and post types.

If it still doesn’t work, maybe there is some kind of conflict with other plugins: feel free to write in the forum and we’ll try to discover a solution (it will be really helpful if you try to deactivate all your other plugins one by one to see which one conflicts with mine… But do it only if you know what you’re doing, I will not be responsible of any problem you may experience).

De plugin is niet vertaald in mijn taal!

From version 3.0 the plugin’s translations are managed by the WordPress.org platform and the plugin is shipped without language files, so first of all update translations under Dashboard->Updates.

If Duplicate Post is still in English, or if there are some untranslated strings, you can help translating to your language: you only need a WordPress.org account.

This plugin is a very useful addition to the limited standard WordPress options. I often use the clone feature to create new posts/pages from existing ones. The options page allows setting the standard name for the copy as well as the attributes that should be transferred.

Just lost 2 hours of work while editing in Yoast Duplicate post. When I went to save my work again it threw an error and deleted everything I had done this morning. I'm giving it a 2 because it would be a good idea if it worked and it DOES let you create a duplicate post and work off that. Just don't use it to edit. That doesn't work reliably.
