This plugin is pretty cool. “Duplicate Post” lets you…. wait for it…. duplicate posts! You can easily duplicate posts by hovering over a post in the edit.php (archive) view in the admin. But it’s not just posts; it works for pages, and any other custom post type too.
I originally found this plugin on a client site I started doing maintenance on, and it works very nicely. It’s great when you have a pretty custom setup, say with page templates, or meta data that’s repeated from one post to the next. It’s also handy for showing a less technical default markup for headings or lists or other options in the editor.
The plugin lets you clone posts entirely, or copy a post and set it up s a new draft.Thanks to Lopo for this handy (free!) plugin. I’m putting into my base install that I duplicate every time I start a new site.
