  • What plugins are you running?
    Are they current?
    What happens when you disable them?

    Have I told you you are my hero tonight?
    Category Visibility-RH Rev caused the problem


    Did you find an update? If not, this one might work: Ultimate Category Excluder

    HandySolo, you’re my hero too 🙂
    I was using Front Page Filter and getting the same problems.

    Oh, and I’ll remember next time I upgrade to disable all my plugins 😀


    I hope someone can help me too. On my blog, out of nowhere, each post is repeated twice. I’m using WP 2.5 and I’m using only 2 plugins. I tried deactivating them and that didn’t fix a thing.

    Please take a look:

    If anyone can help or come up with some suggestions, I’d be so much appreciated. Thank you. 🙂

    I’m having the same issue and I’m confused – my posts are duplicating on indiviual pages. I’m running 4 different wordpress databases, and it’s only happening for one. For the life of me, I can’t figure out what is happening. I’m running 2 plug ins, tried deactivating and tried swapping out the theme, no luck. I thought it could have something to do with the advertising on our sidebar and even swapped that around to no avail. I also checked that the_content was duplicated. (I’m confused about what the whole Loop thing is so I’m not sure what to do there…)

    For example, the individual pages in our Reviews Section are posting twice, as you can see here. Yet in all of our other sections – News, Interviews, Guest Editorials – they are posting just fine, as you can see here.

    If anyone can offer any help, I’d appreciate it.

    I meant to write “the_content” wasn’t duplicated. Whoops!

    Hi Sherrgibbs,

    Since no one else has come up with the solution, I went ahead and do the following:

    1. Export all tables in wordpress database and save it in my computer
    2. Go back to the database and drop all tables
    3. Delete all wordpress files uploaded to your site
    4. Reinstall wordpress
    5. Go to phpMyadmin and drop all tables again
    6. Go to SQL section and import the ‘export file’ that you saved on your computer
    7. No more repeated posts!!!

    That’s what I did. It didn’t take long at all. 🙂


    Thanks for your reply. I’m definitely willing to give this a try depsite being nervous (I’m not so good at the whole database thing). By deleting all of the wordpress files from my site, won’t that erase all of the existing posts? That’s not something I can do as I work with record labels and pr firms who count on those posts to remain where they are. Ugh. I just don’t get why this is happening with only one wordpress database and not the rest I have running.

    Thanks for any help!

    There are no posts ever in your files. Everything that is content (posts, Pages, comments, settings) is stored in the database. Never worry about the files: they are replaceable. Always worry about backing up the database – that’s what you should care about.

    Also, I have seen a few similar reports and some of them have been resolved by a simple upgrade.

    Ok, now I have a huge problem. I followed all of vlaurie’s steps above and after importing the tables back, I get the following error:

    #1064 – You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ”O:9:”magpierss”:19:{s:6:”parser”;i:0;s:12:”current_item”;a:0:{}s:5:”items”;a:50′ at line 2

    I really need some urgent help!!!!
