[Resolved] The plugin generated a post and commented on it for no reason

    I just logged into my dashboard and found that Thank Me Later appeared to have created a post and then commented on it. Did the plugin do that or do I have another problem to track down?

    This is a sample comment used by Thank Me Later. It is not displayed on any blog posts.

    Yes, the plugin did create a post and comment. It does this in order to generate message previews — the plugin needs to create a ‘psuedo’ comment/post, to allow shortcodes to access a comment and generate a preview.

    The post has a custom post type which ensures it will not show up on the front end of your blog.
