after checking some SEO-tools for improvements on the site I’m updating at the moment (www.matteroffact.de), I changed some text-formats in Lay Theme from paragraphs to headlines.
Before I did that, the headlines were only PARAGRAPHS in the text formats and not HEADLINES. So I changed the style »verybig« to H1 and »Zwischenheadline« to H3.
So I checked the source code and found out, that now the Headline Styels are all doubled.
Does anyone have an idea on this?
Thanks for your held and greetings from Cologne
Ok I just tested different things and I'm not sure if I understand the bug correctly.
@rocked23 on your website I don't see doubled headlines
that the content, which has H1 and H3 is now doubled on the site.
Did it look like this?
<h1>my headline</h1><h1>my headline</h1>?
Maybe the seo tool has looked through the desktop version markup and custom phone layout markup. Both co-exist on a page that has a custom phone layout.
If you could recreate that bug and let me know exactly how you recreated this, that would be helpful. And a page where the bug exists would be helpful.
@Marvic please post a link and screenshot of where you experience the problem
I tried out changing textformats to h1, h2, h3 and changing a paragraph format to a headline format and none of these steps produced any bugs for me.
Please note once you have changed a format to h2, h3, h4 or changed a format type, you need to re-apply that textformat to the pre-exisiting text that uses that format in the gridder. This way the pre-existing texts that already used that format will change to h2, h3, h4 or to a different type.
Dear @arminunruh ,
thanks for your message.
First, i changed the text formats from p to H1 etc. and then, I changed this again on each site in the gridder to be sure, that these text-format changes have been also affected there.
The double/duplicate content is not visible on the site itself but in the source code. That leads to the »duplicate H1, H2 content« error message in the SEO-Tool’s check (because it thinks, this content is »visible« twice).
The site is www.matteroffact.de – if you take a look at the source code, you’ll find the H1 example twice:
<h1 class="_verybig">Wir pressen <br />dein Vinyl!</h1>
... in line 1891 and then again in line 1941
Or on this site as well the H2: https://matteroffact.de/vinyl_produktion
<h2 class="_verybig">Wir produzieren deine Vision!</h2>
... first in source code line 1910 and second in line 1974
Or the H3:
<h3 class="_Zwischenhead">Vinyl in höchster Qualität!</h3>
twice in line 1903 and line 1967.
Thanks again for your help!

Hey @Richard ,
I have the same problem as s-janssenMD had and I see that you provided a screenshot where the Headline options show up.
However for me they don't show up when I'm in the text formats and I also can't find it when I've typed text (and then wanted to set it as h1)
Should I be looking somewhere else for this?
Here is a screenshot of how this looks for me:
I don't answer or check forum DMs, please just post on the forum.
