Post Cloner will create a quick to access action button on the post/page edit screen alongside ‘Edit’, ‘Quick Edit’, ‘Trash’ and ‘View’.

All cloned posts, pages and custom post types will have ‘- Clone’ appended to the end of their title. All cloned posts, pages and custom post types will also be set to draft so they don’t appear anywhere on your site until you decide to publish them.
