Editing post in app results in duplicate post

  1. When I open a published post using the iOS app (iPhone), the button on the top-right says "Publish," and if I click it, it will result in a duplicate published post on my blog. In essence, there is no way for me to use the app to edit a post because any changes made will result in a duplicate post being made (I suppose I could manually go in and delete one of the posts, however). I'm not sure if this is how the iOS app is supposed to function, but I assume it's not. If I hit the "Cancel" button in the top-left of the app, it says that I have unsaved changes even if I haven't made any changes and merely opened the post in the app.

    This may or may not be related to a previous error I had with the app (details here: http://ios.forums.wordpress.org/topic/posts-not-showing-up-in-ios-both-iphone-and-ipad?replies=11)

    Any help would be appreciated!

  2. Hrm... I wonder if this problem only affects me.

  3. Hi, thanks for reporting this. Sounds like it's also related to the tumblr import

    This change should fix it, so keep an eye for it on our next release and let us know if it still fails

  4. Thanks, Jorge! I look forward to the update, and I'll let you know if it still doesn't work.

  5. Hi Jorge, so this was fixed in an update to the Wordpress iOS app, but ever since the past two updates (today's update and the update right before today's), it's back to the original problem. When I open up any published post in the iOS app, the button on the top-right says "Publish" again. I'm guessing whatever changes were made to fix this were since broken in one of the past two updates. Any ideas? Thanks!

  6. Hi, thanks for the warning. I'm not sure why that fix got reverted, but it'll be corrected again on the next version
