Hi Henrik,

Thank you for the feedback.

• Event Category chosen
• Selected Image
• The Comment and Trackback settings

I can confirm these 3 points, feature image, Event Category and the Comment/Trackback settings are lost when duplicating the event.

I have added these to a ticket for developer feedback.

Adding ugly *DUPLICATE* to:
• Event title
• Permalink

This is intentional to very clearly highlight the duplicated event, we found within EE3 users would duplicate events, then edit the original thinking it was the dupe, so we added this to ensure it was clear which events are duplicates.

The Title and Permalink can both be edited when amending the duplicate event.

• Alternative registrations site information

This I can not duplicate, all the duplicated events I tested also duplicated this information. Just to confirm are you referring to this field? –
