    Aside from being hacked, is there any plugin or setting in either Genesis or WordPress that would cause unknown Draft posts to be auto-created within the WordPress dashboard?

    There’s nothing in Genesis that would affect post statuses. The themes in WP are separate from content.

    The following may help:

    We just had Wordfence do a scan with no vulnerabilities and complete success and no security issues to report. It’s a mystery.

    Mystery solved and I’m posting here should anyone else experience this. The Unknown posts were NOT caused by a hack. We are using Gravity Forms by RocketGenius. We had chosen to use a custom field (from the Posts Type section of Gravity Forms) in one of our forms. Everytime someone filled out the form it was creating the draft post. So, only use Standard and Advanced Fields for your regular forms — don’t use form fields from the Post section.

    Easy fix.
