Duplicate contentelements

A simple button to duplicate a content element.

Useful if you have an element "Text with image" and want a second element "Image with text" with the same fields.

The Challenge for us

  • How to hande fields? Use the same field (tx_mask_myfield) or create new fields like (tx_mask_field2)?
  • What about existing fields (bodytext)?
  • How handle repeating fields? Add a new one or use the existing? Or make a wizard and let the user decide?
  • How should the elementkey be generated? He is not editable anymore. So also a wizard should ask for this.
