There is no ryhme or reason to when it will happen but we have been experiencing this issue for over a year now. We are up to over 1000 "copy" events in our system with no end in site. ID numbers are normally not in a row as there are above but scattered.

I was given the follwing response on here, which did no good, I could not find the BAO event copy as described and I also inactivated the repeat event tab.

TECH RESPONSE It doesn't feels like a CiviCRM Core problem to me but I don't know what else it could be either.

The "Copy of" seems to indicate that it use the CRM_Event_BAO_Event::copy as if used by the Copy action in manage event page.

You may check for any custom code that could contains CRM_Event_BAO_Event::copy or something like that.

You could also try to disable CiviCRM extensions or Joomla extensions one by one and see if it keeps happening

We are using: CiviCRM 4.6.15. Joomla 3.6.2

  • I'm also experiencing the same issue, which I just noticed it yesterday. I'm running Drupal 7.59 w/ CivicRM 5.6.0. However, I have a few extensions installed. I recenly installed the CiviMobile extension, so I just disabled and uninstalled it hoping that this was the one causing the duplications. – Aaron Nov 2 '18 at 18:44

Have you confirmed that these copies exist at a db level? I.e. Are they just showing the same event multiple times? Look at the urls and see if they have different ids to confirm this.

    Do you have any custom modules installed? Do you have CiviRules installed? Is it rigged to create events? Can anyone log into a portal and create events? Can events be created in any other way i.e. by sending an email to an address? – JohnFF Sep 7 '16 at 16:00
  • I discovered Civi is copying all current and upcoming events only. We had "old" events in there because no end was ever inputted. I am editing the original event with end dates. Once I start deleting all these "copies", the system then will only copy all new events which will be way more manageable when deleting. That is all I came up with. – lilalynn Sep 7 '16 at 17:15
  • we manually create events. I even took out the repeat event option. No one can log in and create and event. Under modules whave tons of itmes but nothing with Civi. I don't see anything with Civirules. – lilalynn Sep 7 '16 at 17:19
