    Wow great plugin. I think this feature should be in the WP core. Joomla doesn’t allow duplicate title by default.

      Hi Joseph,

      WordPress doesn’t allow duplicate slugs which is the most important thing. There are valid use cases for duplicate titles. For example I run a job website. There must be several hundred posts titled “English Teacher in Beijing”. They are all unique with their own URL, so that’s fine. If everyone had had to make the title unique, it would be hard for the users submitting the jobs..

    Hmm, this plugin seems to be based on this older one: https://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicate-title-checker/

    It adds some extra stuff, which is nice (open source in action), but it doesn’t acknowledge the original author, that I can see anyway, which is wrong. :(

      Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I’ll try and contact the author and point him to this conversation and see what I can do to get them to add the necessary attribution.

    CMS Tree Page View – Version 1.2.30 by Pär Thernström – has this function built in. This plugin works well in wp4.0
