RESOLVED: Duplicate comments

    Over the past few days whenever I respond to a comment on any of my hubs, my comment shows up twice and I have to delete the duplicate. Is anyone else experiencing this? It only happens on my hubs, not when I comment on other people's hubs. What would be the cause of this? Is there a remedy for it without having to delete the duplicate comment? And is this hurting my standing in any way?

      Yes, I have this almost all the time, I delete one unless I am responding to more than one comment. In which case I edit the second one to repond to the second comment.
      I don't know if it hurts our standing in any way, I doubt that HP knows the answer to that.

        Thanx for your input, Shyron. I hope it's just a glitch and gets corrected soon.

      Sorry you are having trouble posting comments.
      I just tested using Google Chrome 34.0.1847.131 m in Windows and was able to post a reply comment to one of my Hubs with no duplication of the comment.
      The issue you are experiencing could be a browser, hardware, or other system issue.

      I would suggest starting by clearing your browser cache.
      Then upgrade to the latest stable version of Chrome (you have a minor version older than the current).
      Then restart your computer.

      Here are some other browser trouble shooting steps as well.

        Matthew, how do I upgrade Chrome? Doesn't Windows take care of that for me? In the meantime, I'll see if I can figure it out. Why does it only happen when I comment on my own hubs? Quite perplexing....

          No, Windows does not automatically upgrade 3rd party software.
          The link I provided above has information related to upgrading browsers including the websites for each.
          You can also download Chrome directly from Google here.

            Matthew, I just downloaded the latest version. Now I just have to wait until someone comments on one of my hubs to see if that fixed the problem. Thanks for your help!

              If you have not done so, I would also suggest clearing the browser cache and cookies as well as rebooting the computer too.  That way you can eliminate those as potential issues.

                I did, Matthew. I need to wait for a new comment on one of my hubs to see if that did the trick.

                    Thank you, Matthew. All seems to be well now. I deleted your comment and my response. Now I know what to do the next time this happens.
