Support » Plugin: Multisite Post Duplicator » Issue with copying author in Multisite

  • Hello,

    I am facing few issues while copying a post.

    Issue 1

    While I do copy a post, it copies all the content including the author data for that post.

    So when I am copying POST_1 from SITE_1 to SITE_2, then the owner of post is AUTHOR_1 who created POST_1 who has access only in SITE_1.

    But when post is copied, it is showing AUTHOR_1 as author in SITE_2 also. But I am not able to edit it, showing error as Access denied. So I changed the post author to SITE_2 author [AUTHOR_2]. Then everything work fine.

    While copying I guess you need to check whether the author has permission to that site or not, and then change the author [MAY BE ADMIN OF THE SITE_2] if he doesn’t belong to this site?

    Issue 2 / Suggestion

    I am getting copy to option in post selection only on Master website, not in child sites

    Issue 3 / Suggestion

    • Not able to duplicate to current website itself. Only can duplicate to other website
    • Individual post duplicate option can help to achieve it quicker than selecting bulk action also

    Kindly suggest me a fix for this.

    This is intended functionality at the moment. I agree that this could be problematic if in some scenarios. Maybe in a future release I will look into some solutions to help manage.

    Apologies for the late response. I made this plugin in my spare time and finding it difficult to get time to focus on MPD at the minute.
