Someone Made A Plugin to Clear out Feedwordpress Duplicates

April 14, 2008

by — Posted in Technology

I had received a comment over the weekend from a individual that had created a beta plugin that works as a helper plugin to the original feedwordpress plugin.   That’s a mouthful.    Anyways I was browsing the newest plugins to feed my wordpress tweaking addiction and found this, FeedWordPress Duplicate Post Filter. So it seems that he publicly realeased it.   Hopefully I’ll manage to get tested this week on my beta blog.

/sigh

/fingers crossed

/hopes in the wind

  1. Hi, I found your blog looking for a solution to the duplicate title problem FreedWordPress causes. Did you managed to solve the problem by using this helper plugin? I want to use it too but I needed an opinion. Thanks.

  3. I tried a version literally the day it was released – it still had some issues with it. I’ve heard he made great strides, but to be completely honest I’ve given up on feedwordpress.

    I have a friend that wants to rewrite feedwordpress (or it’s functionality) from scratch but that’s still months away. I can say what I do currently is setup a feedburner feed for the information I want to gather and setup an email subscription. At that point it posts as a draft to my blog and I manually edit it.

    It’s inelegant, but it’s nicer then going away for the weekend and coming back to clean out 2000 duplicate messages.

  5. That’s fine – I use it for life caching and my data input isn’t too huge, so manual review isn’t that big of a deal for me, but I understand the huge weight it can cause on others.

    The problem I had originally is that the plugin didn’t work quite right, after a few days I was still seeing duplicates, but they did lessen. At this point I just grew more and more frustration at feedwordpress and felt that this second developer shouldn’t have to be making a secondary plugin to fix feedwordpress’s inadequacies. The developer of the help plugin has updated it a few times since I’ve tested, so he is quite motiviated on getting this working properly.

    Since it really is a niche function, I will probably tackle it again this summer, the fatigue of doing it where it seems to work for a few days and then breaks again – rinse repeat – is something I don’t have the effort to try again.

    I would highly recommend if you have the option to try this on a non production blog first to see what the results are before applying it to your main blog.
