How to Duplicate a Page or Post in WordPress

When you’re working on a WordPress website for quite some time, you may find yourself recreating the same part of post or page. You might wish you just duplicate those pages or posts. Good news is you can do that within one simple click with the power of additional plugin.

Why do I need to Duplicate my Page or Post?

Most modern WordPress theme comes with a page builder plugin such as Elementor, Visual Bakery, or Beaver Builder. Those plugins are extremely robust and useful when it comes to building a layout. At WPExec we are using Elementor Pro and we use some pre-made layout regularly. Instead of spending time recreating the same layout for each every post we create, we use the Duplicate Post plugin to help us speed up the development time.
