Getting duplicate entries

    Any idea why a few days ago GF on 2 different blogs started submitting duplicate entries when previously it had not been?

    I have a standard contact form and it started sending me 2 emails per submission.

    I also have a post-creation form on a different blog which is now creating 2 posts for each submission. The only difference is that one of the posts doesn't have the uploaded image attached to it. Otherwise they're identical.

    Thanks,
    Erika

    (I currently have a single-site license which I'll happily upgrade to multi-site once I get a response to my upgrade key request from last week.)

  2. If you are getting duplicate entries of any kind and it just started happening then you need to look at what you have changed on those sites. Another plugin could be interfering with form submissions. You will need to check for plugin conflicts to determine which plugin is causing the issue.

    It could also be the result of a caching plugin that is causing the form to submit cached data. So you may need to see if you are running some sort of caching plugin.

    Hmm, it even happens when GF is the only plugin active...

    Carl, has anyone had a chance to look at this yet? I haven't heard back.

    Thanks,

  7. Hi!

    I've got the same problem.

    Yesterday, everything was ok.

    I'm testing the added plugins if they are the problem for me.

  8. I tested all the plugins but I still get duplicated posts.

    So how to solve this problem?

    Now I'll uninstall the gravity to check if it works

  9. @erikajurney I was able to recreate the issue on your site. But after I deactivated *ALL* other plugins and then only activating Gravity Forms I noticed something... the shortcode wasn't in the post body for that page. It was appearing because it was being displayed via Page Caching from W3 Total Cache.

    I added the shortcode back to the page, submitted some test forms and it works fine. You can view those test entries and see the entry id's are in order so no duplicates were created. The form didn't actually exist on the page for whatever reason, but W3 Total Cache was still showing it so that was causing problems. Caching can cause issues such as this.

    @imi82 Did you deactivate ALL your plugins and then activate just Gravity Forms and test? This issue doesn't happen on it's own. It's always another plugin or theme that causes it. In the case above it was the W3 Total Cache plugin showing a cached version of the page that was incorrect.

    The shortcode wasn't appearing because the content of that page was being displayed using a php include and that needs the plugin Exec PHP - it had nothing to do with caching.

    Thanks for taking a look!
