posts

2. There are two ways to create a post from here. The traditional way of creating a post is by clicking the “Add New” button on the top left of the dashboard. This will allow you to create posts from a clean slate.

The second way, which is what we recommend is to hover on a post similar to the post you want and click on “Duplicate this.” This method copies all the settings of the post you duplicate. That way, you only edit the sections you need to change on the post and inherit all other information/settings of the post you want to keep.

3. We will start with the duplicate method. To create a post with this method, hover on the post similar to the one you want to make and click on “Duplicate this” link. After the page reloads, a new post with the same name as the post you just duplicated will appear on the dashboard with a “Draft” suffix on it. Click on that post to start editing.

If you want to add the post using the “Add New” button, instead of editing, just enter the required information in the same fashion as when you edit.
