At this time, Draw Attention doesn’t have a built-in feature for duplicating interactive images. But, this can be easily achieved with the Yoast Duplicate Post plugin. This nifty plugin allows you to duplicate an entire post and all of its metadata with ease. Cloning images with Yoast Duplicate is a breeze.

This can be especially useful for cases where you want:

  • The same interactive image settings, but with a different image and/or more info areas. This method
  • To create variations of the same interactive image with hotspots in the same locations.

Setting up Yoast Duplicate Post

Step 1: Install and Activate Yoast Duplicate Post

Head on to your WordPress Admin Dashboard and navigate to the Plugins section of the dashboard. Click Add New and enter “Yoast Duplicate” within the Search field, and install it to your site.

Once it’s installed, go ahead and activate it.

In order to display the interactive image on your site, you’ll need to Publish and make sure that the status no longer remains as a draft.
