 How can you be that sure I've done something wrong?


       foreach($pictures as $picture){
                 $the_img = wp_get_attachment_image_src(
 $picture->ID,"full" );

                 $title = get_post_meta($picture->ID,
                 if (!get_page_by_title($title, 'OBJECT', 'picsmash') ){
                              $my_post = array(
                              'post_title' => $title,
                              'post_status' => 'publish',
                              'post_type' => 'picsmash',

                             #} Insert the post into the database
                              $post_id = wp_insert_post( $my_post );



 That's my code. If I output $j it is outputting the correct number of
 pictures, however when I then view the custom post type - it has double
 the number of posts.

 It seems to be caused by the fact this is in a function, and I run it
 using AJAX.

 I would imagine if I change it so it's not AJAX related it would probably
 work OK. But it's not as slick that way.
