description:

Builds or updates duplicate posts from a “master” post. This action hook is reserved for admin backend calls.

type:
action
category:
Inserting Content
parameters:
do_action( 'wpml_admin_make_post_duplicates', int $master_post_id )
$master_post_id
(int) (Required) The ID of the post to duplicate from. It can be that of a post, page or custom post. The “master post” doesn’t need to be in the default language.
hook example usage:

Example

// this will create duplicates for the "Hello World!" post
do_action( 'wpml_admin_make_post_duplicates', 1 );

In the example below, we create duplicates for a post or page or custom post when we click on “publish” from the “edit-post” admin screen.

A more advanced example

add_action( 'wp_insert_post', 'my_duplicate_on_publish' );
function my_duplicate_on_publish( $post_id ) {
	global $post;
	// don't save for autosave
	if ( defined( 'DOING_AUTOSAVE' ) && DOING_AUTOSAVE ) {
		return $post_id;
	}
	// dont save for revisions
	if ( isset( $post->post_type ) && $post->post_type == 'revision' ) {
		return $post_id;
	}

	// we need this to avoid recursion see add_action at the end
	remove_action( 'wp_insert_post', 'my_duplicate_on_publish' );

		// make duplicates if the post being saved
		// #1. itself is not a duplicate of another or
		// #2. does not already have translations

		$is_translated = apply_filters( 'wpml_element_has_translations', '', $post_id, $post->post_type );

		if ( !$is_translated ) {
			do_action( 'wpml_admin_make_post_duplicates', $post_id );
		}

	// must hook again - see remove_action further up
	add_action( 'wp_insert_post', 'my_duplicate_on_publish' );
}
