Sometimes I get repeated words in my hub text even though when I edit the word only appears once!!! Does anybody know how to make the second "ghost" word disappear? Thanks!
Haven't seen anything like this, but if the problem persists, let us know what browser you're using, and if you can, take some screenshots that you can send over
I thought I was imagining this when it had happened to me. Sometimes we all by error, type a word twice. When we go into correct that duplicate word and hit done editing, it disappears. However with a few of my articles as an example, this did not correct the situation. If I am using internet explorer for example. You should be using Mozilla Firefox as your internet explorer. It works the best with Hubpages I Have found. So I assume that you were not on Hubpages via firefox when you were doing your editing work? Let me know if this works and if you were not using Mozilla Fire fox.
I don't get exactly what you mean as I have never encountered such a problem.
There is probably some hidden code in there. I recommend copying the text, paste it into a plain text (.txt) document - using Windows Notepad or the like - then copy that text and paste it back into the HubPages text capsule. That should strip off any unwanted code.
Jlbowden, I am not sure that I agree with you here. I never use Internet Explorer with HubPages. I have had situations where I had made corrections, and on my side that showed up normally. Someone else sent me screenshots to prove that from their side, there was an error. In other words, different browsers appear to be showing the text differently - some suppressing this hidden code, others not. Thus my advice to get rid of the hidden code. Changing the browser on the creator side may not really help.
I tried the copy-paste suggestion of Website Examiner and the dupplicated word didn't go away.
I took screen shots of the mystical error in my hub "Moroccan Arabic Basics". They are not so clear but I hope you can read the text in them.
The word "country" in the first line is dupplicated in the published hub but not in the edit page. Check it out:
Claudia Tello, thank you, this is both fascinating and mysterious. Too bad the suggested method apparently did not work. However, I still believe that the display depends on what browser is being used to read the hub. Here is the same hub as seen through Opera. The word "country" has clearly not been duplicated:
Since there is no hidden code, as that was stripped off in any event, it seems to be a browser compatibility error. Did you try to clear the cache, refresh the page to see what happens?

Yesterday when I was working on a Hub, each time I tried to cut and paste some text from Word, it appeared not to show up in the block, at all. I could not see it at all until I had saved the page. When it appeared, it showed up two or three lines below the top of the block and I had to...

Very weird, but for the last few days the option to go back a page no longer works if I am currently on a forum and trying to leave it to return to a non-forum page I visited previously. In fact the best I seem to be able to achieve is to go back to the first page I entered the forum on, but not to...

I've received a warning on one of my articles that much of it is duplicated on another site. I then remembered that I had it posted 1.5 years ago on a site for writers, but not a blog kind. I hadn't visited that site all this time as it didn't interest me and I'd forgotten about it actually. ...

I experienced this a few moments ago only on HubPages and only while logged in. When I cleared cookies and came back to HubPages it was fine until I tried to log in. No other sites appeared to be affected, so I'm thinking it wasn't my ISP. (Although I have Comcast and they are fun to blame.)(I'm...

For the last several days if I wish to share a good hub from a HP author with my followers, it won't do it for some reason. Is anyone else having this problem?

Just noticed that the facebook like button is not showing in Firefox, although it shows up fine in Chrome when I looked.
