    I'm more of a lurker, but I've been seeing double posts lately in various threads. I'm sure others posters already noticed this, can reproduce it, and not doing it on purpose, so perhaps they can list out those steps to reproduce the bug (if it is a bug).

    I tagged xydrine in the funny photo thread a few days ago. I posted 4 different pics, and instead of it all compiling with a "post added" it made 4 different posts with a post added above it. Hopefully it's an easy fix

    yes. the double posting is becoming more common. Im not sure what is causing it. It happens on both my chromebook and my smartphone. It seems to happen if I quote more than one person in a post or add to a post.

    It may be related to caching, I'll look into it when my power comes back on.

    Hate when my power goes out, sorry to hear that. So much so that about 3 years ago we lost power for about a day and a half. I went out and bought an 8500 watt emergency generator, a transfer swith and gennie outlet and wired it to the panel. Won't run everything, but I'll have heat, cable, computer, hot showers, and lights in most rooms!

    Yeah, problem with apartment complexes is there's really nowhere to put/run it etc, at least not here. Someone feel free to buy me a house!

    Anyway, I made a couple changes to some settings, and also am pretty sure I tracked down the double post issue to an addon, so I'm keeping an eye on this and will keep you all updated on it.

    It happens when you make a post and submit it, then go back to edit it and add something...It updates your original post and then adds your separate edited addition to a new post from what Ive seen.

    Yep good call, I actually disabled the double post preventer which may be the root cause. Please everyone report any double posts going forward, let's see if this fixes it.

    [doublepost=1515526301,1515174359][/doublepost]I've installed a new double post prevention script, which the old one was the original issue double posts were happening (yes ironic I know). Let me know if you guys see any issues with this, thanks!
