I am writing my bachelor's thesis and I want for the first pages (title, table of contents, abstract) to be numbered with roman numbers, and the rest of the pages with arabic numbers. I have almost managed to do this, except the fact that my abstract page and table of contents page are numbered with the same number, i, and I get the following warning:

destination with the same identifier (name{page.i}) has been already used,    
duplicate ignored <to be read again>\relaxl.31 \newpage[1

I have read this page Hyperref and repeated page numbers and I have tried all these 3 options in the file mystyle.sty:

\usepackage[plainpages=false, pdfpagelabels]{hyperref}

But none of these help. Here is my document:


\fancyhf{}% Clear header/footer
\fancyfoot[c]{Town, year}}











This is my abstract.tex file:


And here is an example for one of the chapters file:


The mystyle.sty file:

  • This looks like missing a \phantomsection statement.

  • There is some wrong anchor for bookmarks etc. inside from the \maketitle command. Omit it and try to make the title by hand. The message should vanish!

  • How can I make the title by hand? If I comment the \maketitle command I still get the warning

  • Why do the tableofcontents and the abstract have the same number? Do you reset it? Why? To avoid the warning see tex.stackexchange.com/a/18927/2388 (including the comments) Feb 18, 2014 at 10:01

    Many details are missing. How do you write your abstract? Please, make a self contained example.
