Copy Page plugin makes it super-easy to duplicate pages or copy posts – and delete them again!

And why is it handy to duplicate pages? Here are just some of the use cases:

  • Duplicate pages to make short work of using again the same elements you repeatedly use (e.g. text paragraphs, images, video, featured image, etc.)
  • Create a variation of a page or post fast to modify it and compare side by side (for yourself, your client or company)
  • Create one perfect set of page templates and then re-use them for different projects, clients or products
  • Apply a facelift to a specific page but keep the older version in case you want to switch back to it anytime
  • Make a “holiday special” page template and use it for different holidays with respective adjustments
  • Create duplicates for pages used in page builders with their custom settings

You can as well run a load-test on your server by duplicating as much as 1,000 pages, and track how the server behaves. Copy Page plugin also makes it super-easy for you to bulk-delete pages and posts whenever you feel it’s time for a clean-up!

How to use it

Two-minute video tutorial and you are ready to use it, that’s how simple Copy Page is!

After installation you’ll see a new copy page button which, on mouse-over, displays a tooltip (see screenshot) which allows you to copy pages or copy posts with various options:

  • Copy page or duplicate post instantly with a single click
  • Expand to see additional copy page options and specify which elements should be copied for the current copy page or copy post action

The new copy page button will be available on:

  • All Pages and All Posts screens
  • Edit screens (duplicate page or duplicate post on the respective edit page/post screens)
  • Admin bar (at the top)
  • Bulk-option to copy pages or copy posts on All Pages and All Posts screens
  • Gutenberg editor

You can hide copy page or copy post button on any of these places from the Copy Page plugin menu (Section: Other options). Copy page function on the editor screens allows fast and easy multiplying of pages you are working on at the moment (and open it in the new browser tab immediately, too), so you can quickly make a couple of variations, pick whichever you like better, and afterward use the Delete duplicate posts/pages tool of Copy Page plugin to remove duplicate(s) that you dislike.

Copy Page plugin also provides an intuitive naming tool to define how the cloned pages or posts will be named (e.g. you can add the time and date of copying, or incremental counter, etc.). This way you can multiply page that will have a short name, e.g. “ExamplePage – #4” – where the number at the end will increase with each copy made; or you can duplicate page with much more detailed name of the copy, such as: “ExamplePage copied at 14:22:58 on Sunday, December 1st, 2021” – thankfully to PHP date/time shortcodes being supported in the custom date settings. Long names often make it easy to differentiate the clone post, either to remove duplicate or to e.g. edit it.

Want to duplicate page but also it’s child-page(s)? You can multiply pages altogether with child-pages with all the copy settings currently applied to the parent page copy.

Other options available when you copy pages:

  • Specify where you will be navigated to after you copy page or copy post
  • Specify which users (WP roles) will be granted to copy pages or copy posts
  • Specify which content types will be allowed to be copied – copy pages, copy posts, and copy custom post types
  • Enable/disable the display of a reference to the original of copied page or post

Not only can you clone pages or clone posts easily, but the Copy Page plugin also provides a highly developed tool to Delete duplicate posts/pages.

As part of this cleanup process, you can specify:

  • Where the plugin will look for duplicates (i.e. delete pages, delete posts or delete custom posts)
  • What will be considered as a duplicate page or duplicate post (i.e. will it be the same title, slug, excerpt or word count)
  • Which version of duplicates you want to keep: oldest version (original) or newest version (the latest duplicate)

Even if you used this replicator tool to multiply pages or multiply posts in huge numbers, and you want to use this tool to trash duplicates every now and then, but leave out a few specific ones – you will be able to easily find duplicates when you use our duplicates scanner. After setting the parameters to find duplicates, you can use a search box to make sure you don’t delete duplicates you don’t want to, or remove duplicates to the last one (original included!). The duplicate checker tool can help you find duplicate and immediately visually check the clone page by clicking on the URL/slug link, in case you can’t tell by the name or the date clone page was created.

You can select to throttle the delete pages or delete posts process – which you may want to do when you’re on a slow server (note, however: the plugin codes to delete posts or delete pages are already optimized, so usually there shouldn’t be an issue).

Copy Page is a cloner tool with a beautiful, modern design and features going beyond today’s post duplicator tools. We hope that Copy Page will become your favorite posts duplicator tool ????
