Support » Plugin: Snitch » conflict with another plug caused a HUGE problem

  • Resolved werdpres


    i’m using Mastodon Autopost to send posts to a Mastodon instance

    upon making a post, i checked my Mastadon acct. and there was an ongoing flood of posts that i wasn’t able to stop until i finally figured out the cause

    all of the posts contained URLs like <domain>/snitch/<incremented integer>, all of them linking back to the WordPress post i had just made – there must be hundreds of these posts on Mastadon

    i couldn’t immediately find the reference, but i thought i had read that Snitch uses ‘pages’ to store data – this is something i was concerned with and now that concern has surfaced in a big way

    i’m using ClassicPress which is essentially the same as WordPress 4.9 (no ‘block’ editor) and Snitch 1.1.8

    Hi @werdpres,

    Snitch saves its data as a custom post type. When enabling autopost for your posts, you should exclude the post of the post type snitch. Those posts should be kept private.

    Kind regards
