    Hi,

    I feel like sending an envelope full of baking soda to WPRobot right now because I keep seeing duplicate titles despite busting my butt trying to stop it. I tweaked wp_insert_post in post.php for Wordpress and as a result no human being can create a duplicate title in Wordpress, but WPRobot 5 still finds a way to post duplicate titles.

    The only explanation I can think of is that WPRobot posts with its own function that does not require it to call wp_insert_post. Whatever that function is, its title does not include the word/phrases "insert post", "insert", or "post".

    Does anybody know what the name of the function WPRobot 5 uses to post is and what file it is in?

    My next avenue of research will be targeting MySql to require that every title field in the posts table be unique (like a unique identifier), but I am afraid of the impact that making post title a unique field could cause with other things.

    Great, now the wp-crop file quit working overnight. Everything posts great if I run campaigns manually, but if I enable wp-cron it won't fire when someone loads a page and if I disable it, it wont fire when the file is loaded automatically. To add confusion to this I do not see a single entry from WPRobot in the wp-options table with the option name cron, so they must be using something else to schedule stuff or their entries got deleted somehow.
