It's not for blog posts, though.
When you start to see double in your blog, chances are that you duplicated the Blog Posts entry in the template. It's not hard to fix, fortunately.
Edit the blog template, using the dashboard Template - "Edit HTML" wizard. Do not expand or unfold any widgets.
If you unfold either 'Blog1' or 'Blog2', you will have to find the end of the unfolded gadget section, which could be hundreds of lines later. If you delete 1 too many, or 1 too few, unfolded lines, you will get a syntax error.
Error parsing XML: ... The element type "b:section" ...Deleting just one line (see below) is way easier, believe me.
Look for two lines, in the Body of the template, which may or may not be immediately next to each other in sequence:
<b:widget id='Blog1' locked='true' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog'/> ... <b:widget id='Blog2' locked='true' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog'/>Remove:
<b:widget id='Blog2' locked='true' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog'/>Leaving:
<b:widget id='Blog1' locked='true' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog'/>
Save the change. You will get a stern warning when you save, demanding that you confirm that you really want to delete "Blog2". Obviously, you do. And don't forget to clear browser cache, and restart the browser, to reliably test your change.
Remember to save a copy of the template, before and after doing this.
And now, since you're here, and if you just removed a duplicate post template from your blog, help me to help others, and think why you're here.
