Support » Plugin: Airstory » Upload to WP from Airstory not working for me

  • Hello!

    I’ve had the plugin for a while and it worked well a few times.

    Then it started opening up an old, already published post instead of creating a new one and uploading my information.

    I’ve been copying and pasting for a few months, but I’d like to know how to get the transfer working again.

    My system info is:

    Hi Patricia,

    Once a post that has been imported from Airstory is published, the link between the Airstory document and the WordPress post is [intentionally] severed. This is done to prevent potentially disruptive merges of content: once WordPress has published the post, it “owns” the content, so to speak. This avoids potentially damaging (and/or frustrating) merge conflicts, and lets WordPress have the final say over what it will be rendering.

    The “only edit drafts” behavior can be overridden via the “airstory_get_current_draft” filter, if desired; I’ve prepared a simple plugin you can drop into your site’s wp-content/mu-plugins/ directory to enable the behavior:

    My apologies, it appears that I misread the question: instead of creating a new post, the plugin is changing an already-published post?

    To give you background, the plugin tracks its original Airstory project + document IDs via the “_airstory_project_id” and “_airstory_document_id” post meta values, respectively. If posts are being cloned, there’s a possibility that these meta values are being cloned as well, disrupting the query. The logic to retrieve the current draft should still be limited to draft posts, however, unless overridden via the filter in my earlier response.

    If you’re comfortable working with your site’s database, you could try a query like this to see all post meta entries with Airstory data attached to them; duplicates here might be causing trouble: SELECT * FROM wp_postmeta WHERE meta_key IN ('_airstory_project_id', '_airstory_document_id')

    My apologies for the less-than-helpful first response, and please let me know what you find!
