Duplicate Pictures posted

  1. Why does it duplicate my post when I edit and add it to a category?

  2. Hi!

    Sorry for the inconvenience. I'll be happy to take a look.

    Can you reply with a post URL that displays a duplicate post?

  3. I figured out why it was doing that, thanks!

  4. Excellent, nice work!

    For future reference (if anyone searches for the same/similar issue), can you reply to this forum thread with the solution? Thank you! :-)

  5. Sure! I had been posting in the "quick post" at the top of the page which was putting my post in "uncategorized" and when I went in and edited the post to put it in the "photography" category it was copying it instead of moving it.

    So I started going to the dashboard>>new post where I could put it in whatever category I wanted right at the beginning.

  6. Thanks so much for the exact steps you were taking. I'll try to reproduce this in regards to duplicate pictures appearing in the post with your current theme.

    On a side note, you can change your Default Post Category in Settings -> Writing.

    Happy blogging!

  7. Hi,

    I'm afraid I wasn't able to reproduce the duplicate pictures appearing when using the New Post button.

    If you see the duplicate picture issue again, can you walk me through the steps once more?

  8. If you scroll down my page, the first few images are all duplicated. I used the dropdown from the top of the page for the new post and it put it automatically into uncategorized so I was posting each thing then going to my page and clicking edit then changing the category which made it appear again.

    Right, I see that the most recent post that displays two of the same image is "St. Peter in Chains Sketch".

    If you see that again for future posts, can you please let me know the steps you took so I can reproduce the issue?

    so I was posting each thing then going to my page and clicking edit then changing the category which made it appear again.

    Hmm, made what appear again?

  10. It made the image appear a second time

  11. Okay, thanks for your reply. I'll ping our Theme developers to see if they can offer any other clues, as I'm still unable to reproduce this.

    Great news! One of our theme wranglers found that duplicate images appeared when using the "Post a Photo" button when using the New Post button, so we'll need to look into this a bit further.

    In the meantime, if you love using the New Post button, my best suggestion is to use the "Insert Photo" button.

    Sorry for the inconvenience!
