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.
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.

- Follows Magento Code Architecture
- Separated HTML/CSS/JS
- Simple installation via Composer
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.
- Value of the field "is anchor" is always reseted to "no" instead of copying or asking for it. When copiing long catalog trees, thats a lot of clicking-work to do afterwards.

I have looked around to find something like this, and finally i found it.
I'ts a great extension for duplicating categories. I'm using Magento 188.8.131.52 and it just work perfect.
I now can duplicate the whole root category to a new "root category" or to any of the existing "categories" with all sub-categories and product-relations without any problem.
It saved me a lot of time. : )
I would recommend using this module on 1.4 too.
You can first try a demo, if you want to, in 1.4.x.x

What can I say - It works absolutely flawless. It has been the first extension i've bought which installs without any problems, works without any problems. We are on vServer (not dedicated) and it runs perfectly. Deleting the duplicated categories have not been a problem - i tried everything out.
As always on Amasty Extensions -> No Spaghetti Code in the extension. Other extensions have messed up many things in our store, but never on Amasty's work.
