Copy Post

Copy Post allows you to easily start new posts based on existing posts. It supports Posts, Pages, Jetpack Testimonials, and Jetpack Portfolios.

Activating Copy Post

  • Go to Jetpack → Settings → Writing and then to the Composing section.
  • Activate “Enable the option to copy entire posts and pages, including tags and settings”.

How to Copy a Post

In the post list view for supported post types, hover over the Post you want to copy and click the Copy link:

A new post edit window will open, with the following elements already copied over (if the original post has them):

  • Title
  • Content
  • Excerpt
  • Featured image
  • Categories
  • Tags
  • Comment and pingback status
  • Likes and Sharing status
  • Custom post type terms

You can now edit the copied post to your liking and then publish it when you’re ready.


I don’t see the Copy link when hovering over a post.

First check that the feature is activated, as described above, and that the post belongs to one of the supported post types (Post, Page, Jetpack Portfolio, Jetpack Testimonial).

If you still don’t see the Copy link, your user account may not have the required capabilities. Only users who can edit a post will be able to copy it.

I have a multisite network. Can I copy a post from one subsite to another?

It’s not possible to copy a post from one multisite subsite to another. They are essentially separate sites with their own content, and they do not share post data.

If you’re having any trouble with the Copy Post feature, please contact support for help.

Copying Other Post Types

By default, the Copy Post feature supports:

  • Posts
  • Pages
  • Jetpack Portfolios
  • Jetpack Testimonials

To enable Copy Post for other post types, you can use this hook.
