New Feature Fetch More Items pulls up duplicate content/items when first clicked

  • jcervantes28


    My Website is Short Story Guy

    The latest Graphene Theme version rolled out a new feature that allows us to enable infinity scroll at the bottom of the home page, which I like!

    I chose to have a button there so that people know it’s there. However, button or no button (auto scroll), the first time it is pushed or the first time it scrolls, it duplicates the first 5 items that were originally in the home page.

    On the 2nd press/scroll, then it brings up the actual next 5 items. And then after that it seems to work perfectly.

    Has anyone caught this yet? Or is this something related specifically to my site?

    Thanks for the help.

    Can you try disabling all plugins to see if it’s a plugin conflict?



    Good call.

    Disabling the plugins and trying the fetch again made it the fetch work fine….

    Argh… This sucks. What’s my next step. One by one?

    Yeah, the next step is to identify which plugin is causing the conflict. You can activate them one by one, or you can use a common optimisation method used by programmers:

    1. Activate half of the plugins.

    2. If conflict occurs, plugin is among the plugins you’ve just activated. Otherwise, plugin is among the plugins you did not activate.

    3. Keep on ruling plugins in/out by halving them like this.



    Hello Syahir,

    Thanks for the tips on disabling plugins. I did the half/half thing you advised and found the conflict:

    Plugin: Redirection v 2.2.13

    I loved that plugin–it redirected all of my bad HTML to proper and live pages….I got the bad links from Google Webmaster tools and redirected them through this plugin.

    But I guess it is old. It has not been updated in 400 + days and it says it has only been tested up until WP v 3.4

    I wonder if there are any specific redirects that I am using that is causing this fetch problem?

    Or do you think it’s the plugin and I have to trash it?

    If so, any recommendations on a good redirection plugin?

    Many thanks.

    How do those bad URLs come into being? Are they remnants of old website before you switch to WordPress?



    Some of them were remnants of old websites from a site I had for a couple of months on Blogger.

    And some of them are from URLs (post and pages) from my current website from times when I decided to change the slug/URL’s.

    And some of them I cannot explain….There are some that have been produced by WP Touch (mobile plugin) it seems.

    I would give you an example of a bad URL that seems to come from WP Touch, but I can’t find one at the moment because I deleted them.

    I have kept the plugin disabled for now and I am waiting to see if the redirects I had going get any new hits on Google Webmaster tools.
