Duplicate a Page or Post

Copy lets you duplicate a post or page, including the title, contents, tags, and categories, so you can start a new post or page without having to re-enter tags, categories, and formatting. To copy a post or page:

  1. Click on Posts or Pages in your dashboard.
  2. Click the ellipses menu (the three vertical dots) to the right of the post or page you want to copy.
  3. Select Copy.
  4. The WordPress Editor will open immediately, creating a new post with duplicated content.

If your website has a Business or eCommerce plan and you do not see the Copy option, go to Jetpack → Settings → Writing and activate the “Enable the option to copy entire posts and pages, including tags and settings” option.

This feature will not be available if you are using a page builder plugin, but the plugin may provide its own option to copy pages and posts.

Classic Editor Options

These instructions are referring to the WP Admin interface. To view this interface, click the Screen Options tab in the upper right corner and select Classic view.

You can copy a post from within the Classic editor.

In the list views for posts, pages, testimonials, and portfolios, you’ll find a “Copy” option when hovering over a post item.

Clicking “Copy” will open a new edit window, with the following elements already copied over (if the original post has them):

  • title
  • content
  • excerpt
  • featured image
  • categories
  • tags
  • comment and pingback status
  • Likes and Sharing status
  • custom post type terms

If the “Copy” option isn’t available, you do not have access to that particular post.
