If you work with WordPress professionally or privately and would like to copy a post, it makes little sense to redesign the page from scratch. We'll show you which plug-ins can be used to duplicate a WordPress site.

How to manually duplicate a WordPress site without a plug-in

If you want to duplicate a single page in WordPress, you don't need an additional plug-in. This saves you the time that would otherwise go to searching for and installing WordPress plug-ins. If, on the other hand, you have to duplicate several posts, we recommend jumping to our instructions in the next section .

So if you only want to copy one post from your WordPress website, proceed as follows: Simply open the post to be copied and click on the three-dot menu as shown in the picture . Here you select the " Copy all content " function ..

Just copy the entire content of the post.

That's it - you get the message " All content has been copied ". Now you can create a new post, insert the content with [Ctrl] + [V] and edit the post.

If you now want to duplicate several posts, it would be better to use a plug-in for WordPress, more on this in the next section.
