Thanks for the great plugin. I installed it on a development site and ran it with a test Facebook page I set up and everything worked perfectly. Now I’m installing it on the live site and it won’t stop posting the same posts over and over again until the queue is full.
I want new posts to go out as soon as possible, and two posts have been published in the last week that I also want to get auto-posted to Facebook. So I have the minimum age set to 0 and the maximum age set to 7.
There are many other post categories on the site that are used for other things, but I have only checked off one category (the “Blog” category) on the Include Categories tab. These posts only go in the one category – they aren’t in multiple categories.
The Number of Posts/Pages to Share is set to 1, and the Post Type is set to Posts Only.
The two posts from the last week are successfully sent to Buffer and go into the scheduled slots and show up perfectly. But then a little while later they are added to the queue again, and then again and again until there are 10 posts in the queue, and then the log shows that Buffer is rejecting them (it’s a free account, queue limit is 10).
I delete all the duplicates in Buffer, and they keep coming back. It’s not on Buffer’s end – I can change the message text and the new duplicates have the new text. If I “Pause HYPESocial – Buffer”, the posts stop duplicating in the Buffer queue.
Looking through a bit of the code, I see you are keeping a list of post IDs that have been posted (hsb_opt_posted_posts), and I see the correct two posts’ IDs in an array in the database, but that’s not stopping them from getting posted.
I don’t know what the problem could be. The development site I tested this on didn’t have this problem. Do I need to do something with those two posts so it will not keep sending them to Buffer? What could be causing this issue?
