How do I duplicate an article?

You may find it would be faster and easier to copy an article and update the content than to start from scratch. This article shows you how to duplicate articles.

This feature replaces the "Create from Template" feature in our legacy CMS. 

If you have a template that you use in the legacy tools, you can access that template in the article manager and follow the steps below.

What article fields are duplicated?

On the General tab — all fields except for Notes, Categories and Due Dates are duplicated

Nothing from Related Items,  Products, or Comments tabs

On the SEO tab — all fields except Canonical are duplicated; the Browser Title and Slug reflect the new article name, which includes "Copy of"

On the Media tab  — all files are duplicated

Publish status — duplicated articles are always Unpublished

1. On your dashboard, under Editorial, select Articles and then search and select the article you wish to duplicate.

2. When the article manager opens, click on the three gray dots in the upper right corner to expose the Duplicate button

A confirmation message saying "your article has been created" will pop up and your "Copy of - " will populate in the article manager.

3. Make the updates to the article.

Make updates to the article, including the Headline, which will always start with "Copy of - ".

4. Check the Auto SEO update button and then Save

This will ensure that all the changes you made to the Headline, Teaser and Keywords will be automatically updated on the SEO tab, including the URL.
