How to Clone a LearnDash Course
In your WordPress admin panel, go to LearnDash LMS -> Courses. The list of courses on your LMS should be displayed. Upon hovering over a course name, you should notice a ‘Clone Course’ option.
Upon clicking this option, the course should be completely cloned along with associated lessons and topics, and you should receive a course successfully cloned notification.
At this point, you can either edit the title of the course cloned, or bulk edit the course, lesson, topic titles.
All course content duplicated, is not automatically published, but rather saved as drafts, and categorized the same way as the original content.
