Check all the options you would like to get applied for all the new WordPress page and posts cloned as above.
In the next category Prefix, suffix.
Generally, if you directly click the clone button, it would add one more post or page in the dashboard with the same name. This is the place where we can use Prefix an suffix to differentiate the original and newly created one.
The prefix will add provided word before the post or page title, and suffix will do it at the end of it.
I prefer to add a prefix as Duplicate so that I can keep an earlier version intact and work on the new one. Provide those according to your need, and finally hit the Save Changes button.
