Method 1: Using Copy/Paste to Duplicate Elementor Page

Not so long ago, Elementor team added a copy/paste feature. This feature lets you copy and paste widgets not only on the page you’re designing but across the entire website.

Here’s how you use this feature to make a copy of an existing page:

Step 1. Open the page you want to copy in Elementor editor

Open original page in elementor

Go to the page or post you want to duplicate, then hover and click on “Edit with Elementor” option to open the page or post in Elementor page builder

Step 2. Right click to "Copy All Content"

Scroll to the botton of original page and right-click to copy all content

Scroll to the bottom of the page you would like to duplicate then inside the grey box, right click then click “Copy All Contentoption.

Step 3. Create a new page from WordPress Dashboard

create new blank page

Go back to your WordPress dashboard and create a new page or post depending on what you want.

  1. Hover on Pages, then click “Add New”
  2. Type new page name
  3. Click “Edit with Elementor” to open the new page in Elementor editor

Step 4. Paste the contents from original page

on the new page right-click and click paste

From the new page you just created, right click inside the dotted box and click on “Paste” to paste all the contents you copied from the original page.

viola! you have a copy or original page

After pasting the contents, you should now have a copy of the content from the original page.

You should now be ready to tweak the new page to your liking such as changing the text, images, etc.

That is it! You now have a copy of the original page.

Method 2: Using templates to Duplicate Elementor Page

Another really great way to make a copy of an existing page is via Elementor’s templates feature.

This method is great if you think you’ll re-use the page design over and over again.

So the idea is you create a template from an existing page then you just plug the template into the new pages or posts you’ll create thereafter.

Step 1. Open the page you want to duplicate in Elementor

Open original page in elementor

Go to the page or post you want to duplicate, hover onto the item you want to copy then click on “Edit with Elementor”

Step 2. Create a template

click save option then Save as template

To save the original page as a template

  1. Click on a little icon next to “Update” button
  2. Then click on “Save as Template”

See next screen on how to proceed.

give template name and save

On the next popup screen, give your new template a name before you save

  1. Type template name
  2. Click “Save” button to save your template

Step 3. Create a new page or post then open it in Elementor

From WordPress dashboard, create a new page or post.

  1. Hover on Pages then click on “Add New”
  2. Type new page name
  3. Click “Edit with Elementor”

Step 4. Insert your template in the new page or post

click add template icon

To insert your previously created template, click on the folder icon from the new page.

switch to my template then insert your template

On the next popup window

  1. Click on “My Templates”
  2. Then hover on the name of the template you saved, then click “Insert” button
viola you have your new page via template

Viola! You now have a copy of the original page onto your new page.

The beauty of using templates is that you won’t have to repeat the first steps of saving the template again, from now on you simply have to insert your template whenever you want to have a copy of the original page.

Method 3: Using "Duplicate Post" plugin to Duplicate Elementor Pages

This final method uses a plugin but it’s very quick once you finish installing the plugin.

It’s even possible to duplicate multiple pages or posts at once using this method.

Step 1. Install "Duplicate Post" plugin

click add new plugin

From your WordPress dashboard,

  1. Hover on “Plugins”
  2. Click “Add New”
search for duplicate post template

Now using the search box on the right hand side of the page…

  1. Type in “duplicate post” to search for the plugin
  2. Click “Install Now” to start installing the plugin
activate plugin

Click “Activate” button to activate the plugin.

Step 2. Duplicate a page or post using new "clone" option

hover on the page you want to duplicate and click clone

Go to all pages or posts then hover on the page or post you want to duplicate.

You should now see a new option “Clone”.

You can now click on “Clone” to make a new copy of the original page

you now have a clone of the page saved as draft

The new copy of the page will be saved as draft. So you should see “Draft” against the duplicate.

The duplicate page has all the elements the original page has.

click quick edit to give your new page a new name

You can now quickly rename the page to avoid confusion

  1. Click on “Quick Edit”
  2. On title filed, type a new title name for your page or post
  3. Click “Update” button to save your changes.
That is that!
You have successfully duplicate an Elementor page with all it’s design layout. You can now go ahead and tweak it around to match your preferences.
This method works for non Elementor pages as well.
