    Hello, when I create a new file or a new page in WP Customer Area tab, I also noticed the creation of many auto-draft (empty) posts. Is this a bug? How can I fix this problem? Thanks a lot!

    Hi,

    We have not noticed this issue on any of our websites. Could this be a conflict with your theme or another plugin running on your site?

    I think it is a problem related to the generation of the permalink of the post.
    Before publish the post permalink is create dinamically:
    [url.domain]?post_type=cuar_private_page&p=1216&preview=true
    After posting the post, permalink changes in real post url:
    [url.domain]/pagine/le-mie-pagine/2019/02/23/demo
    This produces the creation of an automatic draft for each post created (private page or file in wp customer area). And it is quite annoying.

    Hi,

    I don’t think that this is an issue.

    WordPress is forcing us to create a draft in order to attach files to the post. We cant attach post_metas to a new post that doesn’t exist. I think that why a draft post must be created.

    Regards.

    Ok, that’s all right.
    But when I create (and publish) the post, auto-draft should be deleted automatically.
    Otherwise, if I create one post I will view two posts, if I create ten posts I will view twenty posts, if I create one hundred posts I will view two hundred posts, and this is absurd. At least I think so.
    Why this does not happen with normal WordPress posts?
    I repeat, according to my experience, it would be enough to remove the automatic creation of permalink dinamically before publish the post.

    I agree with you @sanbrosstudio.

    What I do not understand is why WordPress is not deleting those auto-drafts automatically.

    If you have an idea, feel free to submit a pull request to our github repository.

    We are facing the same issue. This auto draft issue annoying in woocommerce sales report.
