Our new WordPress plugin for creating duplicate page/post and switching between them lets you choose the status of your duplicate page/post created. You can choose your duplicate copy to be either Draft, Publish, Private or Pending.

Duplicate Suffix Name

Catch Duplicate/Switcher provides Duplicate Suffix Name option. In the Duplicate Suffix Name section, you can enter a name for your duplicate copies of posts and pages. This helps you in identifying your duplicate pages and posts.

Duplicate Page/Post Redirect

Duplicate Page/Post Redirect options lets you choose whether you want to redirect to the duplicate page/post created or want the created duplicate post/page to be displayed in the list with the original ones. Select the redirect option ‘to list’ if you want your duplicate pages/posts to be shown in a list with the original ones. And if you want to directly head over to the created duplicate page/post, select the redirect option ‘To Page’.

Switcher Option

The Switcher Option can be found in the second tab named ‘Switcher Settings’ in the plugin’s setting page. You have the option to enable the Switcher for page/post. Enabling this switcher will add a new switcher section in the Metabox each time to go to a post or a page. It allows you to switch between the content type—post or page.
