In today’s post we are looking at: Duplicate Post, PDF Embedder and Redirection Plugin.
This is one of those plugins that can save a ton of time if you have the need to do this a lot. If needed only occasionally, it might not choose to add yet another plugin to your site. But there have been times when I was using a formatted page or post over and over where this did save me a ton of time.
You will first clone the page or post, then you click on New Draft. It gives you the options in the settings to copy the date, status, excerpt, attachments, taxonomies (categories and tags) and custom fields.
FREE & PREMIUM PLUGIN
You know that if you upload a pdf to a post or page, you simply get the link so people can download it. But with the PDF Embedder, it embeds the PDF right into your post or page. People can see it and click through the pages even before they download it. It easily sizes itself to the width of your page or post. It appears that many of these embedders use a third-party site, which can cause issues if that site goes down. But not with this one.
The free version does a nice job, but if you use something like this a lot, you may check out the premium version, which includes download buttons in the toolbar, full screen mode, edit page number to jump straight to that page, tracking, mobile-friendliness and a few more features.
A bit ago, I was taking down one of my sites and moving the posts over here. Typically, I have Yoast SEO on all my sites if I need to redirect any posts, but for this one, although I kept one page up and running, I removed the Yoast plugin and blocked it from search engines. So as a result, I installed the Redirection plugin to redirect the URLs to the posts’ new home.
It’s an easy plugin to use and can come in real handy, especially if you are migrating pages or posts from an old site. It also provides 404 error monitoring, which helps in case you missed something.
