Description

Per our email conversation with Katina:

Matt, I also just noticed that there appears to be some issues with the External Group Blogs plugin causing duplicate items of the same post

Can you open a new issue and mark it under a milestone so I do not forget? Thanks!

This is fixed in commits 2ddf5c8 and 4698251.

The problem was we were not doing proper checks for uniqueness when fetching a feed and determining if the RSS feed item was already recorded or not.


Boone: To fix this, I've recorded the unique ID of the RSS item as activity meta, so on subsequent RSS fetches, we do a check for the new activity meta entry. The same method is also used when deleting an individual feed from the group interface.

We also need to port CAC's changes from 2014 and on to our Github External Group Blogs repo. Is it okay if we do a straight copy-n-paste from CAC's version of EXB over to the Github repo (disregarding commit history)?

Yeah, definitely. I don't care about the commit history.
