    Hi Samowal1201,

    At the moment there’s no way to automatically delete duplicate posts, it’s a manual process only. However it is on the roadmap to be added at some point in the future. I don’t have a set time frame yet, but it should happen.


    would be highly appreciated to have that possibility! Either via a cron setting or via wp-cli – both are really easy to implement. You could take a look at the disfunctional delete duplicate posts plugin, it has some code about cron, but the wordpress dev docs about cron are as easy.

    But implementing wp-cli will be quicker, it means just adding a wrapper – that would give us the great option to use this plugin as a wp-cli command line command AND would make it easy to automate it via cron, without any need to build a gui dialog for cron settings (rabbithole!)

    I would opt for wp-cli as a quick fix and a very good option for automation for power users (or anyone who knows how to use wp-cli).

    If you put the code on github it will be easier to collaborate on this.

    Thanks for your attention!

    Hi B0RG,

    Missed this one as well. Nice idea about wp-cli. I use it all the time for other things. Will look into that. Might have to add the setting as well, because some users won’t be comfortable with wp-cli.

    Anyway, definitely on the agenda.
