1k draft posts created, Trash disappeared

  • Hi, I’m having the issue that over 1800 empty draft posts were created with the date January 1, 1970. When I try to delete the drafts, nothing happens, because apparently the trash functionality was disabled when I did my test of importing five items.

    I deactivated all plugins and it didn’t fix the issue.

    How do I turn the trash functionality on again? Why were so many drafts created?

  • Had to use a separate plugin Bulk Delete to get rid of everything. Then had to deactivate all plugins, repair the tables, and reactivate to find which plugin caused the issue.

    Still not sure why so many draft posts were created, but at least I have my trash functionality back.

    Hi Siriomi

    Thanks for your bug report. I’m on holiday right now so I can’t investigate this for a couple of weeks. If it was my plugin, then I apologise.

    Best wishes

    Hi, Siriomi. To delete it you would have to access your SQL Database and request table with the contents as draft then delete them from there.

    CPK Web Solutions, I have the same problem however it has to do with importing .csv file of custom post type.

    The importing status shows that everything is imported successfully however there is no custom post pages created. The SQL database shows all entry’s I tried to import. (some with “Null errors”, etc)

    Please Advise.

    Hi mkbn

    Sorry it’s not working for you. It seems there must be a bug in the plugin, but I won’t be able to fix it until I get back home to Australia.

    You should restore your site from backup to resolve any database corruption issues.

    Best wishes
