<img> tag gets repeated in posts after upgrade to 2.8.4

    I have a rather weird problem. I’m upgrading from 2.7.1 to 2.8.4 (I know, I know, I’m a procrastinator!) and for the most part, the upgrade went well. However, in *some* of my existing posts, the <img> gets repeated a number of times (I’ve noticed 2-4 times so far) and re-inserted seemingly randomly throughout the post.

    I have over 2 dozen plugins, all of which seemed to have gone along with the upgrade just fine. I can list those if anyone thinks those would be useful.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.
    Cheers!

    Here are some additional data points:

    I started over and re-ran the upgrade, this time up to 2.8. Same thing occurs, but this time the randomness is pretty apparent, as it’s a different set of posts that have this img tag repeated.

    Weird, right?!

    Are the img tags properly closed? The editor will try to close open tags and, in my experience, generally does a very bad job at it. Just a thought. Its hard to say anything solid without more information.

    Ok, never mind. It was a plugin that was screwing it up. Disabled the plugin – the problem went away. Not worries for most folks – it was a premium plugin. Oh, the irony.

    Thanks for the quick response @apljdi.
