Media Library Categories
[resolved] Plugin is duplicating itself in the plugin dashbaord (4 posts)

    I was experiencing the site slow down that others have reported. I applied the fixes listed by other members here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-media-library-categories-40-performance-hit?replies=6

    This did in fact speed the site back up. However, the next time I logged into my admin dashboard the site was slow again and the plugin duplicated itself. Meaning, the plugin is listed twice in the plugin dashboard.

    I deleted both plugins and reinstalled. The same thing happend again.
    Is anyone else experiences this? Does anyone have an idea why this is happening or how I can correct it?

    Please verify the plugins directory in first time, do you see 2 folders media library categories ?

    I am not entirely sure what you mean by "first time" but - No, there is only one 'media-library-categories' folder in the plugins folder: wp-content/plugins/media-library-categories

    But again, the plugin appears twice in the PLUGINS DASHBOARD.
    Dashboard > Plugins > Installed Plugins

    Additionally if I delete only one of the instance of the plugin in the dashboard they both disappear. So technically it isn't duplicating itself but it is slowing the site down.

    I just figure out why this happenend....
    When I went to apply the fixes from the other post in media-categories.php I made a backup of that file and titled it media-categoriesBU.php in the same folder. This is what was causing it to show twice in the dashboard.
