    I set it up last night on a client’s site and it has tweeted two if the same blog post. Why is it doing that?

    Hello Mike,

    Can you please confirm that you have enough eligible posts to prevent duplicates form posting? A good number would be around 100 or so. Please let me know how many eligible posts you have for your Twitter account.

    No, these are new sites and have around 10-12 posts so far. There was nothing I read that said there was a minimum number of posts. You’d think the software would be able to track which ones have been posted and not duplicate them. What’s the point in that?

    On this site, there are 10 posts. It tweeted four of them, and then started doing repeats. I just deleted the duplicates. I would have thought that it would have at least tweeted all the posts available before starting to duplicate them. How can I turn duplicates off?

    If you only have 10-12 posts to share and you reshare posts every hour then after 10-12 hours there will be duplicates. This is something that is just not avoidable.

    There was nothing I read that said there was a minimum number of posts.

    There is not a minimum number of posts that you need to have but we recommend having as many eligible posts as possible so that you do not have duplicate posts :)

    You’d think the software would be able to track which ones have been posted and not duplicate them.

    Content Resharer Pro does have an option to NOT duplicate posts within a certain team frame. What this reshare schedule does is not reshare the same article twice within a time frame without first having shared all of the other posts. For example, if you have 10-12 posts and you have your reshare frequency set to 1 hour then within the first 10-12 hours there will be not duplicates posts shared. After that time frame however posts will be duplicated since there are no my unique posts to share.

    I hope this make sense and if you have any other questions please let me know :)

    Well, as I said above, it started duplicating posts after the first four, leaving the other six alone, so obviously there is something wrong.

    Can you please confirm that you have your Reshare Scheduling set to Randomly without duplicates and you have your Do not Post Duplicates Within setting to anything above 12 hours?

    The Resharer Scheduling settings is found under the Account Setup tab in the Account Setup panel.

    You can also try to use the Ascending by Published Date or the Descending Published Date reshare schedule since that will reshare the posts in order.

    I do not have that option. See the attached for the options I see.

    Please select the Randomly with duplicates option and then the other option will appear :)

    Ok, I see it now. However, I want them shared in chronological order and on randomly, even the longest choice is only 30 days. I do not want duplicate content to be shared for 3-6 months. Is there no way to extend that?

    In thinking about it more, I realize there are some clients who would NEVER want to have duplicate content shared. There needs to be a way of turning off duplicates completely.

    I totally understand what you are saying but that is what Content Resharer Pro was designed to be. What you are explaining is more of a one time share functionality, like Jetpack’s Publicize. Instead Content Resharer Pro was built to reshare your older content over again so that you can bring more traffic back to your older posts.

    I think the key word here is Older posts. It doesn’t make sense to me that older posts should include posts that have happened within the past 12 hours to 30 days.

    It would make more sense that a site with 100’s of posts, as you described earlier, would want to share older posts, not something they have recently posted. That would get to be a bit like spam. I know that if I was following someone who repeatedly reposted the same articles over and over again, I would stop following them.

    Ok, so I set it to not post duplicates within 30 days and the clicked Reshare, and it posted an article that it had posted just 18 hours ago. Even within the time frames you have set, it isn’t following the rules.

    I think we are different pages here. When you refer to 12 hours and 30 days you are referring to the time frame in which duplicate posts cannot be shared until all other eligible posts are shared first. This does not determine what posts are shared but how those posts are shared. So you can have a bunch of 1 – 2 year old posts that do not duplicate within 30 days.

    The setting that determines what posts are shared based on published date is the Post Age setting. This is where you will determine how old posts can be to be considered eligible.

    Ok, so I set it to not post duplicates within 30 days and the clicked Reshare, and it posted an article that it had posted just 18 hours ago.

    Once you save the new Reshare Schedule all prior shares will be ignored. So for you that is around 1:41 pm today, which I got from your post within this thread :) Have a look at all the posts shared from then to now and if those duplicate before sharing all of the eligible posts then we can talk about reporting bugs.

    That already happened last night. As I said in my earlier post.

    I set it up last night on a client’s site and it has tweeted two of the same blog post. Why is it doing that?

    and

    On this site, there are 10 posts. It tweeted four of them, and then started doing repeats. I just deleted the duplicates. I would have thought that it would have at least tweeted all the posts available before starting to duplicate them. How can I turn duplicates off?

    Yes I understand that but didn’t you just change the Reshare Schedule earlier today?

    Yes, I had the setting on Ascending by Publish Dates before. Even on that setting, I would expect that it would have shared all of the 10 existing posts before starting to post duplicates. I guess I really don’t get this plugin. Why would anyone want the same article shared more than once, within hours of each other, when there are other, not duplicate posts to be shared?

    Yes that is correct. With the ascending by published dates Reshare Schedule all of your posts should be shared in order from oldest to newest. By this definition there should be no duplicates in a sense this all posts are shared in order.

    I will have the team look into this to see if it is an issue, but in the meantime it would help us out a lot if you could determine at what point Content Resharer Pro stopped sharing the posts in ascending order.
