Duplicate Post


Este plugin permite a los usuarios clonar contenidos de cualquier tipo, o copiarlos en nuevos borradores para modificarlos
Si lo encuentras útil por favor, plantéate donar cualquier suma que quieras, aunque solo sean 10 céntimos. Unos pocos céntimos de cada usuario me ayudarían a desarrollar el plugin y mejorar el soporte.

Cómo funciona:

  1. En ‘Editar entradas’/’Editar páginas’, puedes hacer clic en el enlace ‘Clonar’ debajo del título de la entrada/página: esto creará inmediatamente una copia y te devolverá al listado.

  2. In ‘Edit Posts’/’Edit Pages’, you can select one or more items, then choose ‘Clone’ in the ‘Bulk Actions’ dropdown to copy them all at once.

  3. En ‘Editar entradas’/’Editar páginas’, puedes hacer clic en el enlace “Nuevo borrador” debajo del título de la entrada/página.

  4. En la pantalla del editor puedes hacer clic en ‘Copiar a un nuevo borrador’ sobre “Cancelar”/”Mover a la papelera”.

  5. While viewing a post as a logged in user, you can click on ‘Copy to a new draft’ in the admin bar.

3, 4 y 5 te llevarán al editor para modificar el nuevo borrador: cambia lo que quieras, ha clic en ‘Publicar’ y ya está.

También hay una etiqueta de plantilla, para que puedas ponerla en tus plantillas y clonar tus entradas/páginas desde la portada. Haciendo clic en el enlace te llevará al editor para modificar el nuevo borrador, como cualquier otro enlace de la barra de administración.

Duplicate Post has many useful settings to customize its behavior and restrict its use to certain roles or post types. Check out the extensive documentation on the plugin’s site.

Installation Instructions

Use WordPress’ Add New Plugin feature, searching “Duplicate Post”, or download the archive and:

  1. Descomprime el archivo en tu ordenador
  2. Sube el direcdtorio duplicate-post al directorio /wp-content/plugins/
  3. Activa el plugin en menú ‘Plugins’ de WordPress
  4. Ve a Ajustes -> Duplicate Post y personaliza su comportamiento como lo necesites.
El plugin no funciona, ¿por qué?

First, check your version of WordPress: the plugin is not supposed to work on old versions anymore. Make sure also to upgrade to the last version of the plugin!

Then try to deactivate and re-activate it, some user have reported that this fixes some problems.

Presta también atención a la pestaña “Permisos” de los ajustes: asegúrate de que el plugin está activo para los tipos de contenido y usuarios necesarios.

If it still doesn’t work, maybe there is some kind of conflict with other plugins: feel free to write in the forum and we’ll try to discover a solution (it will be really helpful if you try to deactivate all your other plugins one by one to see which one conflicts with mine… But do it only if you know what you’re doing, I will not be responsible of any problem you may experience).

¡Este plugin no está traducido a mi idioma!

From version 3.0 the plugin’s translations are managed by the WordPress.org platform and the plugin is shipped without language files, so first of all update translations under Dashboard->Updates.

If Duplicate Post is still in English, or if there are some untraslated strings, you can help traslating to your language here: you only need a WordPress.org account.
Contact me if you wish to become an editor for your language.


Great plugin

I use this every month to duplicate the announcement of my WP meetup. It’s great not to have to set tags, categories, and retype most of the wording every time.
On another site, I use it to duplicate future events for an events calendar.


Must have plugin

I use this post on almost all websites. It is so handy and helpful! I’ve saved hours of work because of this simple, yet incredible useful plugin! Thanks!
