URLs in comment field getting duplicated?

When I put a URL in the comment field, most of the time it gets duplicated?
Is this a bug or a "feature" ?

Thank You

Please show us an example for such an URL (as screenshot or text example).
Then we can try to reproduce this behaviour.

I start by adding a time stamp for example 0:52 then paste in the URL
It then duplicates it...

So you try to add this text
0:52 https://www.mixcloud.com/brian-borden/ttns-the-thursday-night-show-november-10-2022-live-wdj-brian-borden/
manually as COMMENT in the tag panel on the left side of Mp3tag for a selected MP3, right?

No I added it in to the comment field in the main pane on the right.


Does the same happen if you enter the same data in a different field?
Does the same happen if you do not enter a URL but other data in the comment field?
And if this something that only happens in this particular column:
What does the column definition look like for the comment column?

As you can see, the URL will NOT be duplicated, if I enter it in the main pane:

URL not dupliated

What exactly are you doing step by step?

As @ohrenkino already has asked:
What is your definition for the Comment-Column?
(right-click on the "Comment" column, then "Customize column")

I worked out the issue. I gave the job to somebody else to do and they were using 3rd party software to populate the comment field without telling me!
Apologies but thanks to all who replied.

.... and do you know how to get rid of the duplicated field - fast?

...and how to find files with more than 1 comment field?
