Product questions

Which particular category settings are duplicated with this extension?

If you copy categories with our extension, the following things are duplicated:

  • General information, including Description, Page Title, etc.
  • Display Settings
  • Custom Design (if applicable)
  • Products

Are new products created while duplicating a category?

No, duplicate products are not created. This means that a copy of the original category will have already existing products assigned to it.

Can I copy all product relations while duplicating a category?

Yes, you can copy all product relations by choosing parent category for the duplicate on the Duplicate Category page. Read on to see the settings.

Can I change the name and description of the duplicated category only?

Yes, of course, you can change any settings of the category you’ve copied. Moreover, you can use a “Find and Replace” option on the “Duplicate Category” page. With this functionality, you can automatically modify category name, description, etc. Follow the link to see the settings. 

Does this extension mirror everything put in the original category even after the duplicate category is created?

While copying products from one category to another our module provides a one-time duplication option, so no new products are automatically added to the duplicate category once the original one gets updated.

Does this extension have the ability to copy categories from one store view to another?

Yes, sure, the extension offers a possibility to copy categories from one store view to another. Go on reading to see how to make it correctly.

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.

Helpfull but not perfect
Verry helpfull and reliable in duplicating categories, but one improvements would be fine (therefore one star is missing):
- 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.

Awesome tool
I'm glad I've picked up this addon together with some more Amasty mods. The tool is as easy as it can be, and that's awesome, cause in our store we have to create a lot of similar categories and manually fill them with hundreds of products. Now the problem has gone, it takes me a couple of minutes to duplicate and edit a category. Thank you, guys!

Thank you, Amasty!

What would have taken me weeks to complete took me under an hour. When it comes to Magento and future work I might need, Amasty will be the first company I look to! Thank you!

The best module for categories duplicating I have found
First, i would like to thank developer(s) of "Duplicate Categories" extension.

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 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

Great extension
Andrei installed this extension in our development environment for testing after we purchased the extension for testing. It worked perfectly! He also installed it in our production environment when we wanted to go live. This is a very responsive developer and support is great!

Wow has this extension save us some time. Don't know how we could have operated without it. I'm finally getting around to writing reviews and now realise how many extensions we have from Amasty (7 and counting) and we are thrilled with them and their developer who always provides professional helpful and human support.

Perfect timesaver
I just purchased and installed this timesaver.

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.
