Delete all duplicate posts
Did not work (3 posts)

    I tried using this with the Duplicate Post plugin. So I am cloning a post, changing some content and publishing the post. The titles are the same. After publishing the cloned page, I expected that this plugin would remove the original post, but both posts were still there.

    to work you just have to change the variable $wpduplicate to $wpdb
    and it works !!!
    i add to at the end of the request "WHERE post_type='post' to be sure it delete just the article (not other custom post type)
    best regards

    Thank you for your response, AMBA. I am now using Duplicate Posts Remover which does a good job of finding duplicate posts. At this point, even assuming your fix works, I am not comfortable with having posts deleted "automatically." I want to be able to see what is going to be deleted before the fact. ;-)
