Duplicate and Merge Posts

Description

In a nutshell: Finally be able to duplicate and edit live posts without messing up the live version of the post.

This plugin gives users the ability to clone, edit, and then merge back the updated copy back into the original post.

You control who has access to duplicate, you also control who has the permissions to merge the newly cloned edited post back into the original.

Here’s the flow:

Original Post -> Clone -> Edit -> Merge back to Original Post

Reviews

It was a great plugin, now seems unmaintained

It was a great plugin but it seems abandoned. There are old bugs that have not been fixed for a long time, and new bugs that araise with time, but the developer seems not available to work in the plugin anymore.

Excellent

I use this plugin across several sites and it’s a great addition — wish it was part of WordPress core it’s that useful for modifying already published posts/pages.
