[resolved] Old Posts being shared via email/social media randomly (13 posts)

    Hello!

    Thanks in advance for any advice on this! I recently switched over with the guided transfer to wordpress.org (version 3.8) and after reconnecting my publicize accounts (twitter/facebook/linkedin) through JetPack I found out that my readers started receiving "new posts" updates via email and my social media accounts for very old posts (like, 6 months old!). I haven't updated these posts at all and don't know why this is happening.

    For a temporary fix I currently disabled my social media connections, however I can't figure out how to turn off emails, so email subscribers are still receiving spams (I subscribe myself so I see that it's happening.. so far there's been 8 posts within 2 hours!). So, basically, my readers are getting spammed by old posts and I'm not sure what's wrong?! Something with Jetpack!?

    My blog is: http://www.lamariposablog.com if that helps at all either!

    Thank you for any advice!

    -Rachel

    JetPack's Publicize plugin just promoted 2 old blog posts of mine. This wasn't associated with an upgrade to WP 3.8, although it may have been associated with upgrading 3 plugins (Alpine PhotoTile for Instagram, Google Analytics Dashboard for WP and Wordfence Security).

    This issue was supposed to have been resolved [ see http://wordpress.org/support/topic/publicize-just-reposted-over-10-old-posts-to-twitter-tumblr-and-facebook?replies=14 ] but I guess not.

    Thanks for the reports. We'll take a look, and I'll post again here as soon as I have some news.

    Hi. as mentioned on twitter.
    I also have this issue. jetpack shares several random post from my blog on facebook, twitter, g+ and linkedin.
    The first shared post happed at 20:59 - 21. Jan. 2014. I did not do anything at that time on the blog. I wasn't even online at that time.
    Thanks for help.

    I have had this on a wpmu install last night. All blogs on my network have sent out 'new post' updates for old posts.

    Random posts are still going out, despite having disabled 'Subscriptions'. I'll also disable 'Publicise' to see if that stops it.

    QUESTION: If I turn off Jetpack, do I lose my list of subscribers?

    Incidentally, I am being told that not all subscribers are receiving the same old posts. Difficult one for me to confirm or test so not sure how useful that is.

    Also, We have recently moved domain, copying content from the old domains using export/import - could this be related?

    This is happening to me as well and it's very confusing for the readers, and embarrassing. Thank you for checking into it - my blog is http://yousignedupforwhat.com/.

    Just piping up to say that this is happening to me too, though so far on my multi-site install, it's tied to one site in particular. This is the site that is generating the old posts:

    http://experimentsinmanga.mangabookshelf.com

    An additional note on our version of the issue: We use Sitewide Tags to aggregate all our sites' posts on the main site (http://mangabookshelf.com), and though this generally works very well (and hasn't triggered issues with publicize in the past), a title change for a post on the main site seemed to generate repeated "publicize"-ation of the false version of the post on the main site instead of the version on the original site. I don't know if I'm explaining it well (and probably only people who have ever used Sitewide Tags will understand what I'm referring to), but that's never happened before either.

  9. Can you please post your own topics?

    Unless you are helping rachelmurr then you're taking over that user's topic and that's not cool.

    You can provide your details on your own topics. It may be be the same problem or something different. Taking over someone elses topic doesn't really help them.

    Jan, in another thread they said to "follow our progress here" and linked to this thread, so I assumed they wanted this topic consolidated here.

    Hi all,

    I work for Automattic (makers of Jetpack). We screwed up. This very unfortunate problem was a system-wide issue on our end. It is now confirmed fixed.

    We're very sorry for the inconvenience.
