Support » Networking WordPress » Post Dates and Owners get reset on Main Siteq

  • I have a strange phenomenon occurring in my Multisite Install (3.31)

    It seems every few weeks my posts (pages, posts, and bbpress topics) get reset to a specific date and the owners all get reset to one specific user throwing everything out of line. I can’t seem to pinpoint when the exact time, or what is causing it, but it is not related to new plugin installs or the like, everything is frozen at their specific version as is. I first noticed this in December and it has happened every few weeks. Any ideas on this?

    That doesn’t mean it’s not a plugin issue.

    What’ve you got installed?


    I run a lot of plugins for the various sites in my network – but going to focus on blog_id=1 – Of course it could be any of the other blogs that has access to wp_posts, but we’ll soon see.

    remove-dashboard-widgets, signup-tos, logout-redirect, a custom function to define user role on blogsignup:

    function ds_new_user_meta($blog_id, $user_id) {
     add_user_to_blog($blog_id, $user_id, 'bthblogadmin' );
    add_action( 'wpmu_new_blog', 'ds_new_user_meta', 10, 2 );

    network activated:
    adminizize, backwpup, bp members avatar map, bp user profile map, bp webcam avatar, bp xtra signup, My own Dashbaord widgets, Buddypress, Buddypress Profiles Manager, Buddypress XProfiles ACL, BWP Google XML Sitemaps, Dashboard Widgets Order, Easy Blogging, Erocks Dashboard Lockdown, Google Analytics, Infinite SEO, Multisite Global Search, Multisite User Management, Pro Sites, Site Creation Wizard, User Role Editor, Vhost and directory enabled DM plugin, WP Google Fontgs, WP

    bbpress, my own global setttings plugin (dashboard widgets, some altering of text in footers etc), twitter sidebar widget, executible php widget, login redirect, pods cms, unconfirmed, wanguard, wordbooker

    As you see – this is could be a needle in a haystack and next to impossible to do testing on a live site to find out where the source is. Will start doing some searches to see if anything uses wp_posts instead of wpdb->posts or similar.

    Thanks for the response.

    And this is why I have a duplicate of my site installed locally :/ UGH. You’re right.

    I’ve had this in SVN and run a local copy since the start of the network being built, other than replicating users files.dir folders – but cannot replicate on the local copy. I have enough backups that I was able to get the post table restored to a reasonable state, and after reviewing the logs can’t seem to find anything other than a few new user registrations – nothing out of the ordinary. Logging is cranked up again and all I can do is wait, and move to hourly backups to see if I can drill down as to when the problem happens further.
