Bad for bigger sites (2 posts)

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I examined the code (after it failed to retrieve the *exactly duplicated* posts) and found out what the plugin does is basically get ALL of your posts in the database, and run through ALL of them in a loop, breaking the words and compare them one by one with each run. Being a WP plugin author myself, this isn't exactly something I would do.

    My site has ~6000 of posts right now, and this causes a really memory issue. If you have a relative big site, you may want to reconsider about using it. Otherwise, it still works great.

    Thank for your criticism.
    Examining posts by text-similarity on bigger sites really needs a lot memory and cpu. Therefore the comparisons are splitted into a lot of server-requests. Unfortunately this needs some time for comparing.

    Unfortunately i found no better solution. Actually there is an increased need for comparing thousands of posts.
