2.1.6 update causes duplicate featured image on all blog posts

Recommended Posts

SteinVox

Just updated the latest version, and now all my featured images are duplicated when the post is displayed. (not the home page, the post page). How do I back out this update - this is a serious bug!


Have a Great Day !

Cheers,

Andrew

As i mentioned in the update, the code to show the image was originally bugged and did not work, so you must have added some 3rd party code to show that image before you upgraded. 2.1.6 fixed the bug and the image is included for you now. Just revert whatever code you added before.

Actually, looking at it, your image is actually part of the post content. Anyway whatever you decide to keep, you can turn off the featured image showing on posts in the blog and posts settings tab.

OK, I don't buy that..., every single post now has two images. and, before I went to Pagelines, my images were not doubled... I think something is amiss in Pagelines... I don't put the featured image on my posts, at all - never have. And, I haven't done any changes to my post, or environment, that would have caused this - the only change was this update. from 2.1.4 to 2.1.6 Need a second opinion, or a code review, I think. Please confirm, as I can't go back and "change" all my posts..., when updates from Pagelines are coming out like hot dogs..., and perhaps untested, as it appears. If I change this, and enough people point out the error, then i have to go back and fix the fix? Please take another look.

Have a Great Day !

Also, note that one of the images is broken, does not have the frame around it. Either way, none of my posts have an image in the text editor window. This image is getting pushed by the theme, based on the 2.1.6 update.

First of all Relax! Take a look at the first image, i have highlighted the 'featured' image and its code: http://www.screencast.com/t/ooHsKka3 This shows you where featured images are added: http://www.screencast.com/t/ZXKgEKtMh89 And finally where you can turn off featured images in posts: http://www.screencast.com/t/HmQ3gKlzSk

OK, Thanks for the pointer. I still don't understand how this change is a fix, though. Here is the new problem... So, I toggled off "Single Post Page", saved, and that removed the one that was without the shadow. But, in the post page, there is still the featured image. Then, I toggled off the "Post/Blog" page, and the second image goes away, but so does the blog page image. Prior to 2.1.6, I had the featured image on the blog page, but not the post page. Never touched these toggles before today. How do I get it back to "featured image" on the blog page, and no featured image on the post page?

Have a Great Day !

Andrew

Thanks for your patience, Simon. This is where I have it set. And, unfortunately, the featured image is displaying on the "post page" for every one of my posts. Prior to updating to 2.1.6, this was working fine. What do you suggest to dry next? I'm worried that somehow 2.1.6 propagated every feature image into the post itself in the database. That would be a challenge to fix, one by one. Suggestions?

Have a Great Day !

Cheers,

Andrew

The image on your single post pages is NOT a featured image: http://steinvox.com/2012/04/07/its-time-to-compete-on-interoperability-innovation-apple-microsoft-google-listen-up/ The image there is contained in the post content. I see you have the featured image turned off now, thats why the other image has gone. 2.1.6 would not ' propagated every feature image into the post'. Either each of your posts has the image inline, or you have a plugin that pulls the post-thumb and inserts it automatically.

We experienced a similar issue reported by andrewstein. After update to latest framework 2.1.6 all of the previously inserted "featured" post images have duplicated on every post. There are now two images and formatting has been lost- text runs over images etc., Any idea how to quickly fix? http://www.AppEducation.com Thanks (removed featured image from latest post).
