Good morning, I've just completed a piece on a legend from Irish folklore,
https://hubpages.com/education/Field-Gu … -Gollerus#
It's been submitted, but is showing the "Duplicate" warning. I'm not sure why, I haven't published this anywhere else and have re-written the story in my own words. I have also included my own introduction, and an illustrator has created unique artwork for this article. I have also included a photograph that I took myself.
Can you advise why this has happened? And help get this published? I have run a search on Google to see if anything else is coming up with this title but can't see anything. Many thanks.
There shouldn't be any problems re duplication if what you say is correct. On rare occasions I also get the duplicate content warning - but this only when I reproduce a complete whole long poem in one capsule for one of my poetry analysis articles. This is deemed duplicate. To get round this I split the poem up into two or three capsules and this seems to solve the problem.
Make sure you haven't any wordy quotes or citations which may be a trigger for the duplicate alarm?
Thank you, I'll try this, and will rework some of the wording. The main folk tale is split into 3 chunks of text. It's not an overly long piece, but that may help.
There, I've given it a tweak, reworded a lot of it, split it into chunks, and have added a few more photos. Here's hoping it'll work now.
Wow, what a great story, the artwork is amazing. I found a typo, I'll message it to you. But I don't see a contact author link so I'll just leave it here.
"Everything prospered with Dick, and that hole in his wife that was the lack of a wife" (first 'wife' should be 'life' right?).
We can't see it because it is unpublished. Try putting it through Copyscape.
Ah, thank you! I've emailed the Hubpages Team as well.
Copyscape comes up with this - perhaps again this is because it is unpublished? I am entering the link that I can see when I open the article from my Accounts page.
Pollyanna, I wasn't able to reach your article, but Chef-de-jour's about splitting up text in more capsules suggestion sounds good.
I could not access it either. Since you've resubmitted the article, it will take some time to get feedback from HP.
Thanks for replying, Kenna. Yes, I'll see what happens now! Fingers crossed.
Well this is baffling. I spent a couple of hours yesterday rewording things, editing, splitting the text modules up, and added a couple more photographs, then clicked "Finish Editing" and tried to publish it again. Yesterday evening, I received another "Duplicate" content email. I haven't published this anywhere else and wrote an existing folktale in my own words. There is original artwork and photography in here too.
I've emailed firstname.lastname@example.org again today. Hopefully they will be able to sort this out.
Did you put it through Copyscape? You would be surprised how specific familiar phrases get flagged.
I finally was able to access this piece, and I saw the same typographical error as snakeslane. Since this is now accessible, I can only assume the duplicate problem has been resolved. The message to you on Facebook still stands. It's a lovely story, by the way. The illustrations are unique. Very nice.

Hi there One of my hubs has been unpublished, and it says it's because there's duplicate text, but I don't know which part is duplicate? I've written it all myself, and I've just done a "plagiarism check" to be sure that someone else hasn't copied and pasted my writing elsewhere, but it's...

Has anyone ever had an article marked as a Duplicate when you wrote every word yourself? How can this happen?

What is duplicate content?When I get flagged for duplicate content, it kind of breaks my heart, especially when I write something that is totally original - no quotes, no links, etc. I see so many "duplicate" hub oriented hubs and wonder why they exist without being flagged as duplicate...

Got a bunch of duplicate content warnings and I am not sure if Hubpages found duplicate content in my Hubs or on the web. If Hubpages finds duplicate content, how hard is it for them to share with us where they found it and what exactly they found? It sure would save and lot of time and...

Why those of us moving over from Squidoo should not try to transfer our lenses to HubPages manually:I just moved one of my recipes that's fairly new, and doesn't have a high search engine ranking, thinking I would use it as a way to become familiar with the HubPages tools. I deleted the Squidoo...

I hope someone can help before I have to throw away a hub that took me 6 hours to produce. It is marked "unpublished for duplication" for no reason that I can discern. Every single word and sentence came from my own head and has never been published online (or anywhere else for that...
