Duplicate CMS content

This feature is useful if you wish to reuse existing content of your app.
For instance:
- to create a second article in a different language, so you only need to translate the text in the copy of the article.
- to add a new event very similar to an existing event, so you only need to edit the few elements that require a modification.
- etc.

The duplication of content is available for: 
Specific items:
- An article (from a Blog CMS section)
- An event (from a Calendar CMS section)
- A point (from a Map CMS section)

Specific sections with only 1 item:
- Section About 
- Section Form
