Yoast Duplicate Post is a great plugin that does exactly what it says it will do. It copies posts and pages, making it an easy way to create multiple versions of the same content. However, when Yoast bought the plugin, they made some unwelcome changes. The name of the plugin is now Yoast Duplicate Post, which just by seeing the word Yoast there, makes it seem like you have to pay for the plugin in order to use it. At first a little and then without notice a 500% price increase just like Yoast SEO Premium... This isn't the case, as the free version still works perfectly well, but it's a bit irritating that they've changed the name in such a way. Aside from this small issue, Yoast Duplicate Post is still a great plugin and works as expected.
When I tried to update one page on my site, I kept getting a ‘500 internal server error’ message. I tried disabling all my plugins, checking the .htaccess file and resetting the PHP memory limit. My hosting team could find nothing amiss and had no suggestions. As a long shot, I cloned the page with Yoast Duplicate Post and binned the original. Hey presto! Problem solved.
One of the most useful and used plugins in my arsenal. Thanks guys.

Completely stuffed up my website. All the CSS went to pot.
duplicate navigation menu

Hi, doesn't work duplicating navigation menus, doesn't show duplication tool in menus config page.
I've only used the clone post feature, I'm not sure about other features. I'm not even sure how this compares to other page / post duplication plugins, but the plugin has been reliable.
This plugin is a very useful addition to the limited standard WordPress options. I often use the clone feature to create new posts/pages from existing ones. The options page allows setting the standard name for the copy as well as the attributes that should be transferred.
Do NOT use Yoast Duplicate Post to edit!!
By thetravelgal on December 23, 2021
Just lost 2 hours of work while editing in Yoast Duplicate post. When I went to save my work again it threw an error and deleted everything I had done this morning.
I'm giving it a 2 because it would be a good idea if it worked and it DOES let you create a duplicate post and work off that. Just don't use it to edit. That doesn't work reliably.
A great plugin, works as expected and saves me time!
Nice, clean UI and does exactly what it says it does. Thx!
Хороший плагин, но постоянный спам портит все впечатление.
