5 Plugins to copy posts or pages in WordPress

The ability to copy/clone a post or a page in WordPress is a function that we would like to see added in future versions of WordPress CMS. Until then, we’ll have to rely on plugins. 🙂

Here are 5 of the most popular plugins for easily cloning and copying articles.

Yoast Duplicate Post

With over 4 million active installs, this plugin is without a doubt the most well-known post-duplication plugin available.

It’s easy to use and has a settings page where you can set which elements to copy.

Duplicate Post

Less know plugin but has the most options. If you’re searching for a plugin that allows you total control over what’s being copied, this is the one to use.

Post Duplicator

This plugin doesn’t have many settings other from changing the status and date of the duplicated post; simply put, it works right out of the box.

This is the only plugin on this list that comes with a paid version. The premium version will allow you to control the use of the post duplication tool, for example, so that users may only replicate their own posts. You may use the pro version to create redirects, add prefixes and suffixes to cloned sites, and more.

Duplicate Page and Post

Duplicate page and post plugin doesn’t have a lot of features that other plugins have, but it also is lightning fast by comparison.

And the settings page is plain simple:

There are many more WordPress plugins that do the same job, but I didn’t have time to test them all, so I chose the top five. To see them all, go to wp.org’s search results page.

So which one is the best?

If you only need to replicate / clone posts and pages with a few settings, Yoast Duplicate Post plugin is the way to go. If you want comprehensive control over the copied parts as well as premium support, Duplicate Post plugin is the answer.
