I am importing a single image for each post using the following settings:
– Download images hosted elsewhere
– Search through the Media Library for existing images before importing new images
– Match image by filename
– Set the first image to the Featured Image (_thumbnail_id)
It seems that some images just import once with no issue, while others will repeatedly create duplicates on every import. I’m noticing that the duplicated ones all have “-scaled” appended to the file name, so my suspicion is that the import is not recognizing previously resized images as duplicates.
My import runs once every hour via a cron job, so you can imagine the enormous amount of duplicates I’m getting!
How can I stop this from happening?
