    There is a bit more to this question than you have given, I believe. Are you wanting to have the ability to comment on both pages, and they both always have shared comments? What is the purpose of having the information in 2 places at once? – Eric Holmes Aug 30 '12 at 17:14
  • @EricHolmes Yes that is what I want. The reason for this is I need to have a popup on approved comment submission, the only way I have managed to get this to work is to have a redirect when a comment is submitted, then on that new page a timed lightbox popup. For that reason I want them re-directed to a page that looks the same as the homepage, so when they close the popup they can read their comment. – matt Aug 30 '12 at 17:22

If that's the case you are going about it the wrong way. You should use WP_Ajax_Response to send the comment, or just redirect the the same page. Duplicate content is not what WP is intended for.

  • Sorry im a bit of a newbie when it comes to this, could you maybe give me a bit more of an idea of what you would do? – matt Aug 30 '12 at 17:49
  • Sure thing. What is the goal of this "approved comment submission" popup. Does Wordpress not automatically give you a message confirming the comment is put up? – Eric Holmes Aug 30 '12 at 18:13
  • Its to have a custom HTML lightbox with social sharing options and a thank you page. I think I have figured out a work around, what I have done is used the "lightbox pop" plugin which pops up a lightbox based on a number of options. I have set it to popup on a 2nd page load, so when someone submits it pops up. – matt Aug 30 '12 at 18:56
  • I recommend using a Wordpress Plugin for social media sharing. – Eric Holmes Aug 30 '12 at 19:38
  • The issue is we need a custom design for the popup...I was just hoping to redirect to a new page with it. – matt Aug 30 '12 at 20:40
