I always find myself creating posts every time to test layout or design.

For example, I create stuff like:

Content 1

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat. Ut wisi enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exerci tation ullamcorper suscipit lobortis nisl ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.

6 times.

Is there a fast way of copy pasting posts, duplicating them or auto-generating them, perhaps?

I use Demo Data Creator plugin with it you can create and set:

  • Number of users to create
  • Number of blogs per user (for WPMU/MultiSite)
  • Whether users must have a blog
  • Number of categories in each blog
  • Number of posts in each blog
  • Number of paragraphs in each blog post
  • Number of pages in each blog
  • Number of top-level pages
  • Number of levels to nest pages
  • Number of comments per post for each blog
  • Number of links in blogroll for each blog

Ehm, Export/Import them with native functionality? :)

There is also official Theme Unit Test data with plenty of relevant stuff to go through when checking a theme.

  • There's a few invalid paths in that test data, but that's what i use. Not sure specifically which images(was a while ago i installed the test data), but i remember i had to update a few DB entries to get the images to appear(the paths were off)..
