Tareq Hasan I have had this error happen to me twice in the past day on 2 separate users' accounts. When a user creates a Post and clicks submit, that Post should be in Draft mode for the Admin to first verify before Publishing. I am unsure what happened, but in the past day 2 users' Posts have been Published immediately. How could that happen? In the "Post Settings" for this Form, I have "Pending Review" for the "Post Status". Any idea why this Publish immediately is happening? This is rather urgent that I fix this ;(

I think its plugin conflict. Is it happening for all or just 1/2 users? Check that your any other membership or user role permission plugin not playing a trick here?

It’s happening for all the users. I use PMPro and the WPUF-PMPro bridge and those are operating fine I think. A few days ago all was fine, and then all of a sudden this problem started.

The only new plugin I added was SNAP (Social Networks Auto-Poster). I will experiment today with disabling that and see if it solves the issue.

No, I tested this a lot. The problem persists even when de-activating the other SNAP plugin. It also directly publishes the Post even if I set “Post Settings” to Draft or to Pending Review. Both Draft and Pending Review don’t seem to work because the Post is directly published.

Any other ideas on why this is happening? Is the “Post Settings” conflicting with maybe another function in the plugin? I doubt it, but could this be the case? I need to try to solve this asap. Any advice?

It’s working fine here and I don’t see any reason why it’s behaving like this.

Yes I agree it was working fine before, but now it doesn’t. Even when I create a new user it always immediately publishes a new Post. So I am trying to figure out what combination of things are making it do that. Is there a specific area of the code I should look to troubleshoot? Or is there something in the database I should check for? I appreciate your advice~

For new posts, the post status is set at /class/frontend-form-post.php at line 212.

Yes Line 212 just grabs the settings, so that looks fine. I am really confused. I have deactivated all plugins except for Akismet, WPUF Pro, and PMPro and it still has this problem. Could it be something related to PMPro? I do not want to deactivate it since this is a live site, but you think that is related in any way?

Is there another way you suggest I should troubleshoot?

Are the users posting by buying a subscription pack? In that case, it doesn’t care about the settings. If the user has the ability to post, it’ll be publish by default.

Yes users are buying a subscription pack and then posting. Ahhhh, so is there a way to then fix or tweak this so the plugin uses the WPUF Pro settings and doesn’t publish automatically?

Find the handle_post_publish function in /class/subscription.php and replace with this:
[php]
function handle_post_publish( $order_id ) {
$post = self::post_by_orderid( $order_id );

if ( $post && $post->post_status != ‘publish’ ) {
$post_status = ‘publish’;
$form_id = get_post_meta( $post->ID, ‘_wpuf_form_id’, true );

if ( $form_id ) {
$form_settings = get_post_meta( $form_id, ‘wpuf_form_settings’, true );
$post_status = $form_settings[‘post_status’];
}

$update_post = array(
‘ID’ => $post->ID,
‘post_status’ => $post_status
);

wp_update_post( $update_post );
}
}
[/php]

It should reflect the forms post status setting.

Excellent, thank you Tareq! I will implement in the next 1-2 hours and let you know of any issues.

I see PMPro just issued a new release of their plugin and will upgrade in a few days if this fix works. Is there a way for you to include this fix in a plugin update for the WPUF-PMPro bridge?

This subscription post_status has always this issue and will ship with this fix in next versions.

Hi Tareq: ok I implemented the change but it still published immediately.

I changed this:

    function handle_post_publish( $order_id ) {
        $post = self::post_by_orderid( $order_id );

        if ( $post && $post->post_status != 'publish' ) {
            $update_post = array(
                'ID' => $post->ID,
                'post_status' => 'publish'
            );

            wp_update_post( $update_post );
        }
    }

To this:

function handle_post_publish( $order_id ) {
    $post = self::post_by_orderid( $order_id );
 
    if ( $post && $post->post_status != 'publish' ) {
        $post_status = 'publish';
        $form_id = get_post_meta( $post->ID, '_wpuf_form_id', true );
         
        if ( $form_id ) {
            $form_settings = get_post_meta( $form_id, 'wpuf_form_settings', true );
            $post_status = $form_settings['post_status'];
        }
         
        $update_post = array(
            'ID' => $post->ID,
            'post_status' => $post_status
        );
 
        wp_update_post( $update_post );
    }
}

Any other thoughts on how to fix this problem? Thanks for your help~

Hi, any update on this? Should the code Tareq gave me fixed this specific issue? If so, did I just implement it incorrectly? Any thoughts on how to fix this?
