Default Pagelines-Ads Features keep replicating themselves!!!!

What page are your boxes displayed on? There is obviously a plugin causing the issue, I have not heard of quite a few of those, are you sure they are all 100% necessary, 2 post order plugins for example? If you only have 1 page with boxes, would it just be easier not to use them and find an alternative? Please, a link to the box page, I couldn't find it.

About which page uses boxes: The only page calling any boxes that I'm aware of is a [i]very[/i] rough prototype page, http://healthysenseofself.com/home/. (It's not actually the home page!) The PageLines meta settings -> Select Box Set To Show settings for that page specify a box set I actually want displayed rather than "default-boxes" which is where all the spam boxes are showing up. ----- About the plugins: Yes, some of those plugins are redundant, but most of those are for the client's legacy pages. I'm slowly going through and trying to replace them with newer ones that do all the work [i]and[/i] are currently maintained by their developers. Others, like the import/export, move, and backups I can disable except when needed. But. They're there for now.

Well if its not even a public page, why not just not use the boxes? Then disable the section completely ?

As with Features, just because we're not planning to use them now doesn't mean we don't intend to use them. On the home page. I guess I'll just try it with divs. But...? You sure there's no simple way just to disable creating or updating samples without disabling entire sections?

Hi David, I'm not entirely sure if there is a simple way to disable creating or updating samples. I think the best course of action would be to see if Simon has any other suggestions for you.

Please search our forums, before posting!

Eh. I just gave up and disabled features and (new) boxes. In retrospect I can just work around the issue by hand-building them with
tags. Presumably I'll encounter the same issue if I try and use rotators, highlights, callouts, and other PageLines features. So I guess I won't try those either.

So this just happened to me. I didn't do anything accept edit and save a couple features. Then I installed the Reorder plugin to change the order and that didn't work, then I installed the Post Types Order (Version 1.5.4 | By NSP CODE) plugin to change the order (which DID work) and BAM! features started duplicating themselves... Then I deleted Reorder and disabled Post Types Order and they stopped replicating. Then, I turned it back on and it started replicating again. So, it appears that the issue is the recommended plugin to manage the order of Features. So, now I can't use this plugin, but need a way to change the order of the Features. Does anyone know how I can manually change it in the DB or elsewhere? Thanks!! and hope this helps!

The alternative is the feature slide time. I'm not sure how you specifically order them, but you should set the time of the post to the order you want (as if scheduling a post). You'll have to experiment with the times. The plugin causing this just sets the time anyway, so you're effectively doing the same thing manually. Admittedly a bit time consuming, but it works.

Thanks for the suggestion. This seems to change the order in the admin, but not in the front end presentation. Any other thoughts. Thanks!

You could try adding them in the order you want them to appear. Only problem is I don't know if they display top to bottom or bottom to top. :(

Change the sort order to Date mode, and change the publish date on the actual features, this is exactly why this was added. http://screencast.com/t/Ly8mou2s6

I had a similar problem to this a while back. Couldn't figure out how to fix it, and eventually gave up. Then I dissevered my site had been hacked due to some other issues I was having. When I got that fixed, the problem went away, and hasn't been back since.

Interesting, did you ever find out how they got in?

No, I did it through Sucuri. The report didn't say why it happened, but I'm guessing it had to do with badly outdated sites I was hosting at the time.
