Universal Import created duplicate tags

I added a list of 66 ISBNs, one of which wasn't imported. I entered a tag to be added to all of them ("strips Thorgal"). After the import, I had three "copies" of the same tag. One which was attached to 63 items and two who were attached to a single item each. Might be interesting to have a look at, or might be too fleeting/unimportant to have a look at.



There don't seem to be any hidden characters. All three links lead to "https://www.librarything.com/catalog/ianreads?tag=strips%20Thorgal" and return the same 65 items. They only differ by "tid" (tag ID?): 35281007, 35281009 & 35281011 respectively.

If anyone takes a look, they are in my "Import" collection (for now).

Interesting... how are they looking for you, now? Curious if they've cleared up at all. (Peeking myself, now.)

Returning... I am still seeing the 3 duplicate/identical tags on your Tags page, clicking one highlights all of them purple.

I could dig and find this but... remind me, where'd you get the tid?

Clearing your caches and reindexing did nothing to group the duplicate tags, by the way... going to attempt your import on a test account and see if I can reproduce the issue.

Okay, tested the import on my test account ( https://www.librarything.com/catalog/kristi_test_02 ) and did not get the duplicate tag... I tested on my Mac/Chrome setup.

Just in case this crops up again: what browser and OS (operating system) are you using (e.g. Google Chrome, version 90 and Windows 7, etc.)? Will keep this in mind in case I need to test it again.

ETA: I'm deferring this, but I went ahead and combined your duplicate tags first. Let's hope it was a random event and doesn't happen again (fingers crossed).

>3 kristilabrie: I looked at the page source; they were an attribute of the top-level div elements for each tag.

>5 kristilabrie: Thanks! I was using Firefox (probably v121) on Windows 10 at the time.
