[Resolved] Repeating posts
I’ve been getting repeating posts all day, no idea whats happening, I’m using the latest version of the plugin that’s supposed to check titles etc
Anybody else having this problem?
I’ve not touched it for over half an hour and its posted the same 20 articles 3 times, once every 10 minutes lol.
I’ll find another solution, the plugins gone.
what is the rss feed that is causing this problem?
when i say ill check, i mean ill wait 10 minutes until they circulate again.
theyre all going through http://ftr.fivefilters.org/makefulltextfeed.php? if that means anything?
ok….what may be happening is that that filter is changing the permalink each time….I would need to see an example of the feed to see what could be causing this (the plugin checks the permalink and the title to see if it’s already been added to the database and only brings in the feed item if there is no permalink and title). There is a workaround if the feeder is changing the permalink (which they should never do)..but again, I need to see it to see what’s going on.
all of them are repeating posts, perhaps ill need to stop using the full text versions of the feeds?
you know, i think ive got the problem.
you say the plugin checks the database for permalinks, titles etc?
ive installed wordpress on a sub folder, is that causing the problem?
yes, you can read how the plugin does that here:
If you have wordpress in a subfolder, that shouldn’t cause a problem (even if you’re on a multiuser site) since each sub site has it’s own database.
I’ll try putting those feeds into my public web site and then show you a movie on what’s happening..I’ll post that in a bit.
well, I just put one feed into the plugin and it brought it the three items and when i tried to import them again, it wouldn’t (so no duplications)…you can see that here.
What this tells me is that there is something going on with your server (so it’s choking when there is a database call to check for a duplicate) and/or there is something weird due to the fivefilters redirect. I haven’t had any other users of the plugin report using fivefilters – typically people just import directly the RSS feed.
ill give it a go tomorrow, thanks for the input, ill get back to you.
happy new year
ive just tried it again btw, using direct feeds, same issues again.
ill try again tomorrow
I went back to an older version, it works perfectly for me, so I’m not touching it now lol
I have the same issue. Latest version in wordpress.org works perfectly. The beta version has problem.

It seems the plugin does not check the link of posts. The link of duplicate posts has number added to the link of the original post.
