One of my hubs has mysteriously duplicated the date "1991" in the lead paragraph and will not allow me to edit out the duplication. It states: "of the 1991 1991 presidential elections."
I've tried everything, but when I go into the editing mode it appears correctly -- only showing the duplication after I click on "Done Editing." It continues to appear incorrectly on my hub and, although I tried several different ways to correct it, it stubbornly refuses to be corrected.
I hope someone can help me to correct this anomaly.
If it helps, here is the URL: http://hubpages.com/hub/Did-the-Voters- … -in-a-Poke
Can I delete the entire news capsule and replace it with the corrected version without affecting the hub or violating any rules?
The duplicate date is still there.
I will leave it there for a while before I delete the news capsule (and replace it with the correct capsule) to give anyone interested a chance to find out what went wrong.
I would take a screen shot if I knew how (I have instructions for a screen shot, but I don't quite understand them.)
William, maybe I'm looking at the wrong hub? I don't see a news capsule or a double date in this one:
http://hubpages.com/hub/Did-the-Voters- … -in-a-Poke
I just clicked on the URL you posted, Paul, and the duplication is there sure enough.
The first line of the text capsule ends with "1991" and the second line begins with "1991."
I just noticed that you said "news capsule." I said "news" capsule, but I meant "text" capsule.
Lo and Behold, I just pulled up my troublesome hub on KMeleon and the duplication does not appear there. I then pulled it up on my Internet Explorer, the browser I normally use, and the duplication still appears there.
I'm not sure what I do now. I can't use KMeleon routinely because I can't get access to the videos because they require plugins (whatever they are) and I don't know how to get them.
So, I'm still left with the duplicates on the browser I use.
Is it hopeless?
It looked fine in all the browsers I tried (firefox, opera, and internet explorer 7). There is definitely no duplication in the HTML source on the page, so I think this is just some kind of very odd rendering anomaly. I'd suggest just either ignoring it, or modifying that first sentence slightly so that the line breaks at a different place ... I'm at a loss.
Thank you, Paul. I believe I use Internet Explorer 6 (I have an old IBM Thinkpad, if that makes any difference.)
I try not to alter what I wrote originally, but I have made a few small, largely insignificant changes where I felt it was necessary to avoid confusion. I'll work on changing it to avoid the duplication, as you suggest. If all else fails I'll delete the text capsule and substitute a new text capsule that does not contain the duplication.
I very much appreciate your time and effort on my behalf.
I followed your suggestion, Paul, and the duplication has been eliminated.
I'm a little embarrassed that it was so easy. I merely changed "Newt Gingrich & Co." to "Newt Gingrich and Co." It worked!

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...

I am screaming with frustration! Most of my hubs have been unfeatured due to lack of traffic. I write about gardening which no one wants to read about in the winter. Spring is coming so I want to get my hubs featured again, but every time I try to edit them, I either get an error...

Thank you to everyone who reported problems with the photo capsule. A new release just went out that fixed a big issue with Internet Explorer that was causing all kinds of problems and understandable stress for a number of users. I apologize for this, especially because it took so long to track it...

It seems the News Capsule is now out of favour.That's a bummer, because over the last couple of years, it's been recommended as a great thing to add your Hubs to keep the content "fresh".As a result, I (and many other Hubbers) have a News capsule on every @##$%^& Hub. That means...

One or two of my hubs have fallen victim to the "does not meet quality standards" empty bubble.In one case, I imagine it is because the hub falls under the "purely personal" category, better suited to a blog. That's fine. I can move it. (It's an older hub...
