Clone & Replace

Gives you the ability to clone posts, and replace posts. Together, you have a very powerful tool for a fork/merge editing model.

If I clone post A into post B, then make edits to post A, then replace it with post B, are those edits retained and merged into the final result?

No, those edits are overridden. For a more typical fork & merge writing model, check out Post Forking

Can I schedule a post to be replaced?

Absolutely! Post replacement happens when the post is published, so you can replace a post in the same ways you can publish any other post.

The "Replace" fields don't appear on published posts. What gives?

This is done as a fail-safe. At this time, replacement happens on publish. Remember that the replacing post will be deleted after it is merged into the to-be-replaced post. If your replacing post is published, then you will be deleting a published post, leaving a 404 on your site. If you want to replace a post with a published post, you must first unpublish it.

What will/won't be cloned/replaced?

Everything about a post will be cloned except child posts (which includes attachments and revisions) and some core post meta, like _edit_lock and _edit_last (though you can alter the post meta that's skipped with a filter)

Everything about a post will be replaced except its Post ID, Slug, GUID, Post Status, and child posts (including attachments and revisions).
