    Default Double Post Bug

    Hi, I've just come across a strange bug. Whenever someone replies to a post using the advanced editor, the post shows up as many times as a new reply has been made. The attached image shows what I mean, but I've had posts show up as many as 5 times when making a reply using the advanced editor rather than the quick reply.

    I can't say I've ever heard of an issue like that before, and the editor used certainly would not cause an entry to be multipled. Do you have the same issue if you disable all other plugins/products in your Admin CP?

    Hi, I wouldn't really know to be honest as I've too many mods to disable them. However, this happens in both vB3 and vb4, and it seems to be more when the original poster makes a reply. There's no double posts showing in the actual database, just in the category listings. It's my only issue with this as the rest works fine and does most of what I want. Just wish it could be sorted! I could give you temp admin access if you need it.

    Just a note...the extra posts are even showing in the CMPS mod on the front page.

    Okay, I made a test reply to one of the faulty posts, and it's showing up yet again:

    I'm not seeing any duplicate entries like that when viewing as a guest on your homepage or within your categories... Do you still see the same issue if you logout?

    You're right! It just seems to be when I'm logged in. I've logged in as other users and it seems okay. I've cleared my browser cache but it's still happening when I log back in, so goodness knows why it's doing this!

    After all this time I've finally figured out what the problem is. If I'm subscribed to a post, but click the subscribe link again, that's when the problem show up! If I accidentally subscribe to the same post 4 times, I'd see the post 4 times. Silly me!

    Seems to be a bug in my ears. You should not be able to subscribe to the same post more than once.

    Can this be fixed? If you inadvertently subscribe more than once, then the post shows up in duplicate.
