Duplicate Categories by Amasty

Amasty Info

Please find full description, live demo and user guide at Magento Duplicate Categories module page

Simplify duplication operations.

Automate time-consuming routine operations.

You may need to copy a lot of categories to, let’s say, a new website you’ve created within Magento. With all subcategories and products, category duplication becomes a very time-consuming and tedious task. Let the extension automate this process.

Save a great amount of time.

Spend just a few minutes on extension installation. Magento duplicate categories tool allows you to free up a lot of time, which you can invest in your store development rather than routine tasks.

Accurate duplication tool.

Choose parent category for the category being duplicated.

You can choose which category will be a parent one for the category you duplicate. For example, you would like to copy category ‘Chairs’ to a different website within your Magento. You can choose which category will be parent for the duplicate in the new website.

Duplicate all subcategories and keep all product assignments (optional).

You can use the module to copy categories and if needed to copy all subcategories of the duplicated category while duplication. You can keep all product assignments in the same way.

NEW!Automatically modify category name, description, etc.

It is possible to find and replace content for duplicate categories in name, description, meta keywords and meta description fields during duplication. Words from ‘Search For’ fields will be replaced with content from ‘Replace With’ field, you can fill in both fields.

Enhance your product management possibilities with new solutions

Perform more product actions at a time

To optimize your work with routine product management issues use also the Mass Product Actions module. It allows to fulfill this and much more other time consuming manager’s tasks just in a few clicks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped with site migration It’s not kind of an extension you would use every day but it is worth the money spent even if used occasionally. It helped us to migrate our site and change its structure a little. I can’t even calculate the time this mod saved for us. At first we had a few problems but support fixed them, thanks. But you’d better still create a backup before its installation and before duplicating the categories.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good one I am using magento 1.4 and it works perfectely on my shop. The extention is cheap and does what it does. My shop is a jewelry shop and the tool is a time saver because I don’t have to copy categories manually. We have many items so I was lucky to buy it. We had an error installing it on our shop but great men in support helped us. Very fast support, thank you.

    Rated out of 5 by from I have memory 512 Mb & max_execution_time 600. The categories do duplicate but you can't get rid of any cache on front end no matter how many times you clear every cache possible. I can't pin point it but I have all the problem only with the categories that have been duplicated. I make changes to product like name, descriptions or Page Layout or whatever and nothing updates on front end! In the back end you see the change but nothing on front end. Its driving me nuts!
