    I tried to do it inside wordpress but with no luck, which is why I went to the post and metapost tables in the database, if you do not have access I am not sure what you can do.
    Sorry

    Have you checked the database tables for the problem I had in the post above yours, it worked for me

    It would seem that pings and trackbacks are still open on posts, is there a way to close them.

    I put it in the functions.php file in my child theme

    I have found the reason but not sure why it happened, I had 2 published post-type reply for the same post (same information in both contents) one had a post_parent = 0 and the other had a number, I deleted the record without a post_parent, I also deleted the records in the postmeta table with the same post ID. Is there anywhere else I should remove data ?

    It gets slightly stranger, I created a new reply last night and that shows up but is the only one, If I change the dates to May19 or any other month I see the replies for that month, if I change it to June 19 I don’t see any, not even the one I created last night.

    When I said in the post above it has been deleted I meant the corresponding post has been deleted, the entry in postmeta is still there.

    I am not convinced that much cleanup happens, I have also notices that if I just go into Appearance / menus it creates draft posts with a post_type nav_menu_item and the following in postmeta
    _menu_item_type post_type
    _menu_item_menu_item_parent O
    _menu_item_object_id S
    _menu_item_object page
    _menu_item_target
    _menu_item_classes a:1:{i:O;s:O:’”’;}
    menu item xfn
    menu item un
    _menu_item_orphaned 1559640252

    when do these get deleted ?

    Hi,
    Sorry but just to continue this, I have been looking at the “odd” records with _oembed in the postmeta table, I am concerned that some of these are left over records from spam here is the contents of one.

    
       <blockquote>      <a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/FortniteBattleRoyale/comments/ah71o5/how_to_get_fortnite_skin_free_free_fortnite/?ref_source=embed&ref=share">How To Get Fortnite Skin FREE - FREE Fortnite Berserker Skin</a> from      <a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/FortniteBattleRoyale/">FortniteBattleRoyale</a>    </blockquote>    <script async src="https://embed.redditmedia.com/widgets/platform.js" charset="UTF-8"></script>
    

    why is this being left behind when I delete the spam reply ?

    @clivesmith

    Yes I do, that is how I know there are lots of records with a post_name of “oembed_cache….” and a post_content “{{unknown}}”

    yes, the site seems to be working front end OK, but back end if I click in dashboard nothing is happening now if I click in themes I get the dashboard but when I click on replies or all replies I get a blank list but the next page shows the posts and if I click on drafts I get nothing only the titles. I cannot down load screen sots to show you what I mean.

    Hi Robin,

    My host has changed the PHP handler to “FPM application server by nginx” and not I am getting 404 errors when a visitor goes into a topic or reply. I have asked them to undo the change.

    I get the internal error when I go into dashboard – then click on replies or all replies.

    Hi Robin,

    I have been through that but no luck, I have checked with my host and they say there are no errors showing on the server.
    I am very worried about the posts with a post_name of “oembed_cache….” and a post_content “{{unknown}}” I have loads of them and I have looked at an older database (Nov 2018) and I cannot find any. I did raise a topic about this a few days before I had this problem.
    I would ask if I have been hacked but the website appears to be working normally.

    Hi Robin,
    I am not sure which record to delete, in my posts table for yesterdays date I have about 20 records that contain the “oembed_cache” I asked about in a previous topic. I have looked at the meta post table and that now has about 1000 extra records that I think came from the repair forums tool.

    Extra info…

    I get this error if I try to go into all replies, I have one draft if I try to access that I get the error so it would seem the error is with the create reply that I abandoned. If I go into the post table and delete it will that cause me more problems ?

    Hi Robin,
    Thanks but that does not work,

    Also I have changed the line 11 in bbp style pack as above back to default it knocks the list under Countries back to 50 so not including Vietnam.
