    Hi @oldcrazypirate,

    Could you give us more details about what you’d like do with timestamps and duplicated posts or more information about what problem you’d like to solve?

    If you can give us an example, that will help us understand the problem.

    Hi @priscillamc,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I want to achieve this:

    Suffix
    – set some formula like this: “-yyyymmday-HHMM”
    – in the suffix field of the plugin
    – so that when I click under “some-page” on “Clone”
    – the resulting cloned page name is “some-page-yyyymmday-HHMM”

    Prefix
    – set some formula like this: “yyyymmday-HHMM-”
    – in the prefix field of the plugin
    – so that when I click under “some-page” on “Clone”
    – the resulting cloned page name is “-yyyymmday-HHMM-some-page”

    For example, this can be done in WordPress in other settings and plugins.

    As a matter of fact, in the WordPress menu in “Settings, Permalinks, Custom” we can set “%year%” or “%monthnum%” or “%hour%” or “%minute% and so on.

    So, I was wondering if this could also be accomplished in Yoast Duplicate Post.

    Is it possible?

    Hi,

    It is not possible to use those kind of template variables with Duplicate Post. We recommend creating a feature request here https://github.com/Yoast/duplicate-post/issues to add that possibility. You may need to make an account in order to post.
