Bulk posts not working properly on multiple sites

When I bulk post to multiple sites anything that isn’t simple text, I goes to the publishing spinner of doom, and never recovers. Just add a few jpgs or a gallery to the post, and it hangs. It finally tries to load the next page, and the screen goes white with this url left in the bar:


The posts aren’t stored in the database. Although at least once I got a bunch of untitled posts with no content.

System report below. Help much appreciated.

Hi Dwayne, thanks for reaching out.

I checked the report and it looks good. Nothing unusual in there.

Can you check if it makes any difference if you deactivate all plugins except for the MainWP Dashboard?

That’s good to hear. I am going to install mainWP on a clean wordpress next, as I battle test if for myself and multiple clients.

Here’s what I discovered. It happens when a tagDIV slider element is used in the post with a large image load, and bulk posting to 5-7 sites. You get a long blank-page hang at the spinner, and it never recovers to the post screen, until you refresh manually. I’m using the Newspaper theme with a quite a few clients, so the tagDIV slider is a common element for me, and I’d love to solve the problem.

I will let you know as soon as I’ve tested it with a clean install. Thanks for your prompt response.
