I was asked earlier today if there was an easy way to make a copy of a blog post so I created a video to show you how to get this done by installing the Post Duplicator plugin.
If you don’t care for video, I included text below for your reading pleasure.

How to Duplicate a Blog Post from Bonnie Gean
Why Duplicate a Post?
I can think of countless reasons why you would want to duplicate a blog post with convenience being on the top rung. I always felt that WordPress should, by default, offer this capability to authors.
Here’s how to install the Post Duplicator plugin and use it once you have it on board:
Step #1: Login to your WordPress dashboard
- Click on “Plugins” and “Add New” from the drop down menu
- In the search box, type “post duplicator” and click the “Search Plugins” button
- Locate Post Duplicator by metaphorcreations
- Click the “Install Now” link
- When you get the webpage message, click OK
- Click the “Activate Plugin” link
Step #2: Duplicate a Blog Post
- Click on “Posts” link on the dashboard
- Hover your mouse over the post you want to duplicate
- Click on the “Duplicate Post” link
- WordPress will duplicate the title of the post followed by the word “copy”
Step #3: Edit the Duplicated Blog Post
- Open the duplicated post and change the status to “draft” and click OK
- Change the title of the blog post
- Edit the URL; click “edit” and change the permalink to match the name of your new title
- Click the “Update” button
When you’re ready to publish the post, change the date and click “Publish” to make the new post go live.
