DOCUMENTATION: Finding duplicates

Finding duplicate posts

LJ-Sec now allows you to find duplicate posts. This is useful if you accidentally use the repost feature and post posts you've already written to your alternate journal.

  1. Go to the Journal menu and select Tag Management

  2. You will be asked whether you want to distinguish posts that have comments. This requires a journal refresh, so it can be slow. However, the comments may help you determine which post is the original, and which post is the duplicate.

  3. The search window will then pop up. You will see a list of duplicate posts. Automatically, all "duplicates" are checked. If comments are present, the post without the comment is determined to be the "duplicate".
  4. Make any changes to the selection that you wish. Press OK.
  5. You are now free to do whatever you want with your selected posts. (Usually, this means deleting them.)
