How to duplicate a page in WordPress

Duplicating a page in WordPress can be done with the help of plugins or using built-in features, depending on your theme and WordPress version. Here are two common methods:


 1. Using a Plugin (Duplicate Post):


One popular plugin for duplicating posts and pages in WordPress is "Duplicate Post." Here's how to use it:


1. Install and Activate the Plugin:

   - Go to your WordPress dashboard.

   - Navigate to "Plugins" > "Add New."

   - Search for "Duplicate Post," and when you find it, click "Install" and then "Activate."


2. Configure Plugin Settings (Optional):

   - Go to "Settings" > "Duplicate Post" to configure any settings if needed. The default settings usually work fine for most users.


3. Duplicate a Page:

   - Go to "Pages" in your WordPress dashboard.

   - Hover over the page you want to duplicate, and you'll see new options, including "Clone."

   - Click "Clone" to duplicate the page.


 2. Using Built-in Features (Gutenberg Editor):


If you are using the Gutenberg editor, WordPress has a built-in feature to duplicate a page. Here's how:


1. Edit the Page:

   - Go to "Pages" in your WordPress dashboard.

   - Click on the page you want to duplicate to open it in the editor.


2. Open Document Settings:

   - In the right sidebar, click on the three vertical dots (ellipsis) to open the options.

   - Select "Copy All Content."


3. Create a New Page:

   - Go back to "Pages" in your WordPress dashboard.

   - Click "Add New" to create a new page.

   - Open the new page in the editor.


4. Paste Copied Content:

   - In the editor, click on the three vertical dots again and choose "Paste."


5. Save and Publish:

   - After pasting the content, review and make any necessary changes.

   - Click "Save Draft" or "Publish" to save the duplicated page.


Note:  The steps may vary slightly depending on your WordPress version and the editor you are using.
