Hi, I am using the Node Clone module in Backdrop, and also in a D8 project. I find only two ways to clone a node in Backdrop

  • by contextual link
  • in content overview

The D8 version however does not have the link in the tab section, as the D8 version (and D7 also, if I remember correctly). Is this intentional or is it a bug? PHP version is 7.2+


Under Setting: "Pre-populate the node form fields" works perfectly.

When I select the alternative "Save as a new node then edit" and try to clone a node, I get an error.

This is the process

  1. View the existing node
  2. Click on Clone Content
  3. This action will create a new node. You will then be redirected to the edit page for the new node.

Results: Error

SQLSTATE[23000]: Integrity constraint violation: 1048 Column 'created' cannot be null



These are the settings.




Should any menu link for a node also be cloned?

Use node type name in clone link

If checked, the link to clone the node will contain the node type name, for example, "Clone this article", otherwise it will read "Clone content".
