We're using FeedWordPress on a WP multi-site and ever since the upgrade to v3.5.1 posts seem to randomly retire... There is no obvious pattern that I can identify as sometimes it's just a couple of them other times loads more, sometimes at night or during the day, and it will affect older entries as well as more recent ones.
We're using WP multi-site and just one of the sub sites is experiencing this - the primary domain, if that matters at all. In the DB the
post_status is changed to
fwpretired (note: FWP) and thus they disappear from the front end.
I am pretty sure it's the FeedWordPress plugin as I have found function
wp-content/plugins/feedwordpress/syndicatedlink.class.php that has the following line:
[line:361] set_post_field('post_status', 'fwpretired', $p->ID);
Not quite sure what this function does exactly, but judging by the name I'd say is retires posts (duh!). But why is that?
There is also an
if loop on line 292 -
if ('yes'==$this->setting('tombstones', 'tombstones', 'yes')) : , that also seems to retire posts:
set_post_field('post_status', 'fwpretired', $p->ID);.
What exactly is the point for these actions? Is it a bug or is it expected to work this way? Still, this does not have the desired result.
