  • [Forum] Duplicate posts

    Since upgrading to vB4.2 from 3.something my site is plagued with duplicate posts - generally in a pair, but sometimes in a triple.

    These occur with the same timestamp. I have 'minimum time between posts' set to 60 seconds, and this seems to be providing no protection at all.

    I turned off the autosave feature, as users were often getting the 'Leave page or stay on page' dialogue box and I thought it may have been related, but the duplicate posts persist.

    I'm hosted in the Rackspace cloud, so there shouldn't be a shortage of grunt to service my site. We regularly have c1500 concurrent users and have peaked at c3,500 without hitting a performance issue.

    Googling reveals a lot of similar complaints but I've yet to find a solution, so all and any help appreciated as my users are starting to get a bit fed up with this 'feature'!

          There's an example of a triple post here: http://www.northstandchat.com/showth...54#post5501154 (some slight nsfw content in that thread - sorry - it's the first one I found)

            Try to reproduce this on a default style:

            Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> [Add New Style]

            Create a new style with no parent. Then click that style's name in the Style Manager to view your forum with that style.

            If you still have the problem then try disabling your plugins:

            Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Plugin/Hook System

            Also run a file check to look for customized files:

            Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Diagnostics -> Suspect File Versions

              The default style failed - still a stream of duplicates.

              I've not disabled all plugins and there's not been a duplicate in the 30 or so minutes since so that may have done the trick. If it has, presumably it's a matter of adding them back one by one to try and identify the culprit(s)?

                Yes...disable all plugins then manually add them back until you fund the one causing the problem.
