Boilerplate posts being duplicated

Duplicate boilerplate posts are being created for some reason…

Steps to reproduce:

  • create a new boilerplate post
  • publish boilerplate post to child sites
  • on the Manage Posts page, find the new boilerplate post
  • edit that post, BUT do not make any changes because it’s not the boilerplate (confusing)
  • go to the BoilerPlate Posts page
  • there is now a duplicate boilerplate post

Hi @rickyT, thanks for the report. It looks fine.
Can you tell me do you get this problem on all child sites or just one?
Have you tried to deactivate all non-MainWP plugins to rule-out potential plugin conflicts?

This happening on the main dashboard, not the child sites. The boilerplate templates are duplicating themselves after following the steps outlined previously.

Thanks for the update. Can you send me temporary access to your MainWP Dashboard and one child site (via private message) so I can check this further?

Thanks - unfortunately this is a private project, but please let me know if you want screenshots instead. Are you able to reproduce the issue on your end?

Please feel free to send me screenshots, and I will try to duplicate the again, at first, I tried but I couldn’t

OK no problem… please see the screenshots attached.

Thanks, we are looking into this.

Hi @rickyT, can you please install this MainWP Child plugin version on one of your child sites and see if it solves the problem for you?

Thank you - yes, this version of the child plugin fixed the issue.

Thank for verifying that.

Please note that this fix will be included in the next official release.
