Adds additional action to content actions menu for duplicating content.

Project description

This package adds new content action “Duplicate” into the “Actions” menu next to standard actions like “Copy”, “Cut”, “Paste”, “Rename” and “Delete”.

This does not aim to be as general as possible but it may speed things up.


This package requires Plone 3.x or later (tested on 4.1).

Installing without buildout

Install this package in either your system path packages or in the lib/python directory of your Zope instance. You can do this using either easy_install or via the script.

Installing with buildout

If you are using buildout to manage your instance installing collective.duplicateaction is even simpler. You can install collective.duplicateaction by adding it to the eggs line for your instance:

eggs = collective.duplicateaction

After updating the configuration you need to run the ‘’bin/buildout’‘, which will take care of updating your system.

How it works

  1. New action “Duplicate” is installed into the “Actions” content menu
  2. Duplicate action as available only if user is allowed to add current content type into its parent folder and if has permissions to copy or move content
  3. When user clicks the action link it copies current content, pastes its copy into parent folder and redirects user to the new duplicated content
