Hi @exekutive,

All published topics and posts can be found on Dashboard > Forums > Moderation > Published subtab. You can find the duplicated posts and delete those posts.

Thank you I know how to delete but I get dozens per day. I want to prevent them from happening.

Just to clarify they are _identical_. And they have the same timestamp or within 1sec

@exekutive,

Please follow the steps below:

1. Please update the wpForo plugin to the latest version(v.1.8.4).

2. Then update the MySQL Version to 5.7 and higher.

3. Make sure all tables are InnoDB and check again

Also please leave the screenshot of duplicated posts.

could it be because people are hitting the submit button more than once?

I'm a moderator on the forum, not system admin, but software is all the latest. It was just installed.
