Hub flagged as duplicate

    Hi all,

    One of my hubs is being flagged as a duplicate. I've since rewritten it but the duplicate flag won't disappear. This is the first time this has happened to me. If you rewrite the text will it get rescanned for duplicateness? Or is my problem going to be related to the fact that I've used a couple of my photos that are used elsewhere?

    Try making copy of the photo and save with a new name. Just a thought big_smile rewriting is good. Duplicate will disappear after a day or two. Welcome to HubPages.

    The filter checks for duplicate text, not photos. So the photos will be fine.

      Thanks darkside!

      I've now checked and my hub is no longer flagged as duplicate. The text was indeed the problem.
