On every page there is a link in the tools menu to copy the page. Is there some reason you don't want to use that?

Hi Davin,

you're right, we just want to make it more handable.

You could put something like this into your page decorator in the spot where you would want it to be more accessible.

<script type="text/javascript">
            window.location.href = AJS.Meta.get('base-url') + '/pages/copypage.action?idOfPageToCopy=' + AJS.Meta.get('page-id') + '&spaceKey=' + AJS.Meta.get('space-key');
<form class="aui">
    <button id="myCopyPageButton" class="aui-button">Copy Page</button>
