Note to Jack..."Cutting Edge" is a private forum area.  So it seems that you need to look into how you are handling group permissions as it is usually added as a secondary group in this case.

 

 

I think we've found the issue, we're working on it and should have an update shortly.

NOTICE:

 

At this time I have DEACTIVATED the Topify plugin to check into another issues we have been seeing with duplicate posts being made.  Sometimes other plugins can make for issues and thus looking for the cause.  

 

I will post when we have restarted the beta testing of Topify.

David-

 

I've seen a lot of duplicates that seemed to not be caused by Topify, and it seems that the server is blocked for incoming posts, and so the sender hits Post again, and a duplicate is created. At least that's how it seemed with me a few times in the past 3-4 days. Now, if those instances are all replies to posts sent from Topify, then bets are off.

Yep, I got some weird message with a post last night, and "topify" was in the error message. I didn't resubmit, first looked to see if the post worked, and it did.

Hi...

 

Not that the duplicate posts are made from within the Topify app itself, but that the programs site "plugin" that I needed to add to the sites code could maybe be interfering somehow.  Right now it is only as guess as not many changes have been made to the site in some time.  As such, I turned off Topify to see if the dup issue goes away.  If it does, great, and I alert the Topify programmers as to the issue made by the plugin.  If not, then I need to look elsewhere.

 

Hope that makes sense. :)

Hi...Thanks.  Wish I had the error though. ;)  Right now Topify is still OFF in hopes to see if the dups stop.  Again though...still not sure it is even the plugin...but have to start somewhere.  So far, from when I turned it off, I have not had a lock when posting.

I take it you can see the posting method? Some sort of sniffing as it were.

Hi...If you mean me.  Nope.  I am just waiting to see if we get more reports or dup posts and making posts myself.

Topify app plugin now turned off again as it seems that it is likely that it is the cause of duplicate posts as reported in this thread...

Your implementation is worthless then since you do not provide access to the two additional forums of the tapatalk version (announcements, issues)!

"Your implementation is worthless then "

 

Rather than being just directly negative, it might help if you advised the way you think it should be handled.  Remember, this is a BETA.  As such, we are looking for items that may be missing or not implemented.  Also remember, they might not have the access you have as they more than likely are not cutting edge members and this would not know if something was missing.

 

Jack, in this case, I think he is referring to special permission forums.  Cutting Edge is an added sub group to an account.  You can add the group to your test accounts and personal accounts here...  http://www.dbstalk.com/store/

 

Thank you.

I agree with David, please remember that Topify is in BETA and we need to treat it like our other BETA programs.  If you find problems or issues they should be reported with as much detail as possible so the developers can fix them.  

 

It is always best to keep issues to the point and without added negativity.

Yes, of not being able to see that forum section at all...not what is in the section which is not what you may be reporting I think.

 

Thanks
