The plugin I’ve decided to do research on is called “Duplicate Post”. This is a great tool web page development as it will duplicate all of the page’s fonts, links, coding etc. and create an exact clone of it. This helps when you have a web page that has many similar pages, but with small differences in content. E commerce pages benefit highly from this tool.
The plugin also has a template tag, which will allow you to put your content in a template and mass produce pages and posts. This tool speeds up productivity without having to manually enter the same content repeatedly. This also avoids room for error since the pages are duplicated from an original source.
