Hi guys, my first post here. Working on setting up a new site based on curating news stories pulled in with CyberSEO.

The plugin is truly excellent and I am learning to set up feeds and manipulating them. I am close to launching my website.

But my media library is filling up with multiples of the same image – not just 2, but 4-5-6 f them.

Example (these are two different images from the same post, but I get 4 of one and 5 of the other):

I am also seeing a lot of duplicate posts in my “posts” table in the Wordpress database. (The first entry was edited by me, the others are “raw”).

Why is this happening, and how can I stop it?

(I am not a developer but know my way around things). :)

EDIT: Sometimes there are many dupes:

Please check these images and make sure they are true duplicates, not just the same image with different sizes. By default, WordPress creates 3 copies of the same image with different sizes when cropping a post thumbnail (you can see them in the “Image Sizes” section of your WordPress Settings->Media panel). Some themes and plugins register even more custom sizes of each image to fit their design layouts. So when CyberSEO Pro asks WordPress to crop a featured image, WordPress generates all versions according to the requirements of the theme used.

Thank you, I will investigate.

What about the duplicated database entries?

To be honest, I don’t understand what exactly these table entries are. Are you sure they are not being generated by another plugin? Could you give me some instructions on how to reproduce this on a test site and where to look for these duplicates?

I think I just learned something new – I believe I am simply seeing a lot of revisions to the stories, which is generated by the Wordpress editor and not CyberSEO at all. I will look deeper into this.

If you edited the post manually, these are revisions. There are special plugins that remove the post revisions from the database, and I strongly recommend you to use them. For example, I use Login to see this link to remove post revisions on schedule.

Thank you very much for your excellent and quick help. I will try that. Your plugin is really helping me realize a site concept I have been wanting to do for a long time.
