The copy POSTS content works very sporadically and without any without any pattern.

The plugin is as simple as can be. I select SITE A and then select a number of posts, then select destination SITE B and copy. I always receive the "success" message.

But half of the time, no posts are copied! Some of the time, one post is copied! On one occasion, 3 posts were copied.

I have tried doing one at a time, 5 and even bulk. No pattern. The account I am using has full admin rights to each site AND is a super admin.

Please help.

    Hi @Bob Loukas, hope you're doing well today! :slight_smile:

    Are you using a specific subsite as a source site in your testing, or does that not matter?

    Could you name the subsite(s) being used here (both as source & destination sites)?

    Also, could you try replacing this line in your wp-config.php:

    define('WP_DEBUG', false);

    With this:

    // Enable WP_DEBUG mode
    define('WP_DEBUG', true);
    // Enable Debug logging to the /wp-content/debug.log file
    define('WP_DEBUG_LOG', true);
    // Disable display of errors and warnings
    define('WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false);

    And then try copying the content again? And could you send over the log file that gets created (should there be anything to report)?

    Please advise,

    Hi Michael,

    Yes, I'm trying to go from Site 5 - to site 6 -

    i did it again, i tried 10 posts to copy, looks like 3 of them came over only. The debug file is attached.

    I went through the conflict process and disabled all network and local plugins. It still behaved the same way.

    Next, I created a BRAND NEW site, site 10 with a default (different theme) and tried to copy 10 posts, 4 of them went over.

    No idea what else to try, nobody has reported such a problem before?

    Hello @Bob Loukas

    I hope you are well today.

    No idea what else to try, nobody has reported such a problem before?

    Honestly, I didn't find any similar report before :slight_frown:

    Also, would you please let me know as I asked: And who is your host? What is your memory limit?

    New question, is it a shared hosting?

    Also, would you please try to use the following line in wp-config.php:

    define( 'WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M' );

    Please let us know.
