  • Any ideas why it’s doing this? I’ve just had to delete more duplicate forum topics after I published a post.

    Hi bennygill –

    Can you describe your setup? E.g. versions of major components, or any other plugins involved in your publishing workflow

    And do you use another program to either draft or publish posts?

    It’s been a while since anyone has complained about duplicate topics, but similar problems were once caused by some workflow-sensitive bugs.

    It’s happening to me, as well. I’m using custom post types, and used a solution for another problem earlier to make this plugin work for CPTs. That’s working great (the values are being saved and it’s writing to the forums), but each time a new comment is added to the post, all the other topics in the forums are overwritten (title and author show as the one that was just updated.)

    it seems that, when you add this to a post that’s already created (and move any comments to the forum) it’ll create 2 topics: one with the comments and the other without. Both have the initial “view this post” with a link to the post in question as the first post in the topic. (if I edit a second post, all the posts in the forum are replaced by the most recently updated one, until I edit a comment or something and then they all revert back.)

    If I create a new post, then it just creates one topic in the selected forum, and seems to work like it’s supposed to. The duplicates only seem to happen when I’m converting one that exists (that has comments or not).

    I also noticed a couple of things, but I don’t know if they are related: if I leave the “allow comments on this post” unchecked, but “Use a bbPress forum topic” checked, it’ll make duplicates; but if I have them *both* checked, it doesn’t seem to do it.

    I know it all seems random, but if you need me to do further testing, please let me know 🙂
