Description

Hi All,

A professor has reported a very weird hypothesis issue. I am not sure if this is a Commons bug or hypothesis bug.

This professor uploaded a PDF (book chapters 5-7) for a course in 2017 link here: https://via.hypothes.is/https://spa114fall171.commons.gc.cuny.edu/wp-content/blogs.dir/3395/files/2017/09/La-Frontera-5-6-7.pdf

This semester, the professor will be using the same reading (only chapter 5) so she uploaded a shortened version to the media library for her new course: https://via.hypothes.is/https://span2204.commons.gc.cuny.edu/wp-content/blogs.dir/8302/files/2019/09/Chapter-5.pdf

*to view the readings page on the Span2204 site the pw is Fall2019

The problem: the new chapter 5 pdf pulls in the old comments from the original chapters 5-7 pdf. The pdfs are on different commons sites in different media libraries. It appears that both pdfs are stored in WP-content blogs directory but seem to have different file numbers and names.

I dont think this is a plugin issue since she was using the via hypothesis link, not the plugin to add the annotation layer on these pdfs. Moreover, when I installed the plugin on the Span2204 site, the pdfs cannot be read because the via hypothesis link is added to the pdf url twice.
