Some Products showing twice in Parent Category

I am seeing some of my products listed twice under their parent category and some products not showing at all. I can't seem to figure out what would cause this issue. Could this be related to the sort field when creating a product or could this be a data issue related to a specific product field that is identical to another product field. I have several hours trying to resolve this issue but have not figured out what is causing it. Below is a link to the Category/Products I am referring to. Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.

Your SEO Keyword is the likely cause of your problem

It should not have spaces, commas or any other special characters in it

ie. try to kepp it to

alphanumeric with dashes or underscores for spaces Only

Before I update all of my content, which SEO Keyword fields do I need to update? My home page has a SEO Keyword field, Categories have their own SEO Keywords, Products -> General Tab has Meta Tag Keywords field, and Products -> Data tab has SEO Keyword.

I am assuming you are referring to Products -> Data tab, SEO Keyword field but I want to verify before I update 80+ Products.

Well the link you put above is for a category, so test that one first.

If that fixes your problem and I am 99% sure it will then you need to edit the SEO Keyword (not meta keywords) for:

Products
Categories
Manufacturers
Brands

or get an extension to do it for you ;)

Ok, I updated the SEO Keyword field for all Categories and Products and I still have the same issue. Does anyone know what else could be causing the issue?

Is there anyone that has run into this problem when building a new site using OpenCart v1.5? I built my site using OpenCart template and I can't figure out what is causing this issue. It seems to me that this is a system bug. If nobody can help me with this issue I am migrating my site to another system.

I noticed this too. When products need more than one page for a category, the same product shows up more than once when browsing through the pages. When I show 100 products on a page, which eliminates the need for pages, it shows up fine.

I tried checking my seo keywords for anything that isnt letters or numbers. I found only an &
agh, this is really frustrating. can someone help out?

Using Opencart 1.5.1 we experienced this same issue. We created a product category showing 56 products. If you set the view option to 100 items per page, there are no problems, but if you view 15 per page, an item on page 1 appears on page 2 as well. This occurs for a no of different products (ie appears on page 2 + 3). Some products are even showing 3 times.

hmmm yes we are having this same issue with an installation. products showing twice when pagination is utilised.

i see the getProducts query is grouped on product_id, is this enough?

would love to hear anyones thoughts on this issue.
