Post Duplicator

Description

This plugin was created to make an exact duplicate of a selected post. Custom post types are supported, along with custom taxonomies and custom fields.

*Note: Comments are not passed to the new post.

This plugin is simply meant to quickly and easily duplicate a post. Just hover over a post in the edit screen and select ‘Duplicate {post_type}’ to create a duplicate post.

I created this plugin mainly for myself when I’m develping WordPress sites. I always need dummy content to fill out the look of a website and wanted a very quick and easy way to create multiple posts.

FAQ

Are there any settings I need to configure?

No, but there are a couple settings you can adjust if you choose to do so.
View the settings by going to ‘Tools > Post Duplicator’.

How do I install the plugin?

Check out the ‘Installation’ tab.

Quick response to a suggested improvement - gotta love that! Another plus would be for the duplicated post to appear and be ready to edit rather than generating a link first. 🙂
