@ashleyfeinberg As everyone in "Hollywood" would say: "back East."

@AramZS I've double-checked and had cleared caches previously (which if not done wouldn't have forwarded as I'd had the forward value set to 0 before.)

I've cleared everything out and reinstalled the new .org version from the repository and am finding the same issue seems to persist. (Even testing in a new browser install.)

One thing I am noticing is that a lot of my older posts were actually imported into my self-hosted install from either other non-WordPress sources or an older account. When editing these which don't have any values set for `pf_forward_to_origin`, I notice that the UI default for PF is for them to `Forward` rather than the typical default of `Don't Forward` which I get for new posts.

I'm also noticing that these older posts have the original site's GUID set in wp_posts which means that they're being forwarded to those URLs (some of which don't exist anymore). I'll try to circle around and make a caveat note in the documentation of this for others who may experience it (and not know why).

Perhaps there's some other glitch in my database causing this? Since @regan008 has tested it and confirmed on your side (and the code looks correct to me), I'll throw in the towel. Since I've got to make some of these additional GUID changes (along with some others) in my database anyway, I'll just go in and add values for all these older posts so they're "forced" to work anyway.

Thanks, as always, for such continued work on a fantastic tool!

Did this get rolled up into the 4.3.0 pre release?

If it did, it doesn't seem to have fixed the root issue after I just installed and tested it. I'm still finding that older posts (pre-PressForward) which have no value set for `pf_forward_to_origin` are attempting to forward (back to themselves) when setting a time >0 in the forward settings. Those which have a value of `forward` do forward properly and those with a value of `no-forward` don't. The problem is for posts which existed prior to installing PressForward which have no value set at all.


Let's see if @mentions work properly from outside sites...


I'll second Ryan's comments and raise them to the second power. WithKnown is a stunning product. A CMS, but with so much more power that it really should be an entirely new category of its own. It does what I've always wished the web could do for the past 20+ years.

@preskill @seanmcarroll Perhaps it's more interesting to have students tweet their summaries first, followed by your own version?
