As WordPress and themes become more and more advanced, so do the widgets that are implemented.


Nowadays, some widgets can have more options than the theme itself :) .

You probably already found yourself in a situation where you needed to add a widget with the same configuration in more than one place, such as your sidebar and footer, and you had to spend extra time setting it up again.


Fortunately, there’s a way to duplicate a widget in WordPress, and I’ll show you how!

How to duplicate a widget in WordPress

To duplicate a widget in WordPress, you’ll need to install a plugin called Duplicate Widgets.

It doesn’t have any settings to set up, and you can duplicate a WordPress widget with just a simple click!


After you’ve installed it, go to the Widgets section, click on the down-arrow to open up the widget’s settings, then click on the Clone link.
