Hi,

 

One of our staff users seems to have posted the same comment to multiple targets.  We don’t really know how he was able to achieve this, or how we would delete only one of the targets, and not the other.

 

You can find the query here:

The post id appears to be: http://js-kit.com/activities/post/01236985e02b6d5eeea4df8157199724

 

Is there a known way to publish to two different contexts / targets?

 

Thanks,

Dan

This is actually a feature of Echo.

If an Item (anywhere - a tweet, a blog post etc) is submitted to Echo that
contains a link to a domain/URL for an Echo customer, then it will be placed in
the Echo database.
In this case a message is submitted to Echo via the submit form, and it links to
another URL and so the same item exists in both places for a unified
conversation.

This behavior is described at http://wiki.aboutecho.com/Item+Handling+Behaviors#TargetsandURLsprocessing

The mentioned item has two targets:
1) an explicit target, provided in the submit form (http://slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2011/11/21/before_sunrise_part_3_win_a_dvd_by_entering_this_contest.html)
2) an implicit target, formed from the item body (http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2011/11/28/before_sunrise_part_3_the_best_ideas_for_the_next_linklater_hawke_delpy_collaboration.html)

Once an item is submitted to Echo, it can be modified (or 'Transformed') by submitting an update.
More information on this process can be found on the page "Item
Transformations": http://wiki.aboutecho.com/Item+Transformations#Targets

Hope this addresses your issue, please let us know.

Thank you.
