Duplicating a page

How duplication works

When you duplicate a page in Compose, an exact copy of this page is created, with the same fields and content in them. The new page is created in draft mode. You can then edit its title, slug, change the content in it according to your preferences and publish the page.

What exactly is duplicated?

When a page is duplicated, a copy of all of its fields with their content is created. Referenced entries are duplicated only if Composition relationship is activated. If Composition relationship is disabled, the entry will be linked, but not duplicated.

NOTE: The image below displays how Composition and non-composition reference entries look like in a page in Compose:
