There is an import currently taking place. Please try (5 posts)

    When I press import, I get an error message saying:

    "There is an import currently taking place. Please try again later."

    I tried, waiting, reinstalling the plugin, etc. No luck.

    How can I see if an import really is in progress??

    In an attempt to prevent duplicate posts (which happen when two or more people visit the site at the same time and initiate two or more imports of the same videos), a script was created that set a database value specifying that an import is taking place. If you wish to reset that value you can do so by altering the plugin's is_importing value in the tern_wp_youtube field in the wp_options table of your WordPress database.

    Find a portion of the tern_wp_youtube field that looks like this:


    The random characters (03e9eb1727) will be different in your database. This is just an example. Anyway, set that part of the value to look like this:


    Then you'll be able to begin importing again.

    Thanks Tern s:1:"0" worked perfectly. Incidentally, what makes it stick? Is it a plugin conflict or just a random happening?

    Thanks a lot for your plugin.

    @Sniper973 did you find it? It's in the database. Use phpMyAdmin or something similar. Look in the wp_options table for a field titled tern_wp_youtube. Be careful and edit the value of the fields. Look for the is_importing values near the end. You might want to copy and paste all the values of the field and save them in a text file in case something messes up. That way you can paste the original values back in. Be very careful w/ your placement of colons and quotes.
