Duplicate url_title will not display content

I’m using datagrab to parse an xml feed with non unique titles. eg. every week I will get a feed with a sports result where the title will be Division 1: Results Round Up with the url_title becoming division-1-results-round-up which displays correctly in the browser

The next time the import is run I will get another story with the title Division 1: Results Round Up which its url_title then becomes division-1-results-round-up1 and the story is not displayed in the browser

Over the course of a season I will have a lot of Results round up storys which will not be displayed. Is there a setting in Datagrab to fix this or is an EE issue ?

I’ve tried using other fields like story id or story intro as the url_title but it doesnt work either.

thanks in advance for your help

Thanks for your post.

If you leave the “URL Title” setting field blank, EE *should* create a unique url title which should work.

If not then there is a bug. Could you send me a sample of your data and I’ll test.

Hi Andrew,

When I click on PM it brings me to a page with a header of support forums, a link to your twitter account, a search box under the bread trail of forum home -> control panel home ->compose_message and a table of my account statistics but no text area to enter a private message. Is this normal ?

I will send you a link to my data using the contact form
