The approval of readers' comments seems to be making my blog generate duplicate posts. Does anyone know a solution for this?
Background: My new WordPress blog was working great until someone sent a comment on one of my older posts. This was the first comment I've received, and I approved it. When the comment showed up on the blog, however, the old posting had been copied to the top of the page. My "manage posts" page now shows TWO posts by that name -- the original one, with no comments and the original December 2006 date, AND the new copy of that post at the top of the page, with comments, plus today's date.
Versions: I use WordPress 2.1.3, theme "Pride&prejudise 1.0" by Ekta Paneri and riginally created by Cissi Tsang. This theme supports Ajax Comments.
What I've tried:
- Looking at my blog in different browsers -- IE and Opera -- and the duplicate posting still shows up. So I don't think it's a browser issue.
- Turning off the only plug-in I am using, which is Autometa 0.8; this also did not help.
I don't know enough about what I'm doing yet to try anything else without some advice. Any suggestions for fixing this? I don't want to have to manually fix the duplication of posts every time someone sends a comment to my blog. Thanks!
