How to remove duplicated (double) post from the blog template

way to Blogging

I think you may have experienced this problem at least in one day of life if you are a blogger. That is the duplication of the blog template after some changes to the blogger template. Duplication of article widget is mostly caused after  adding a custom template to the blog. The problem here is that the additional post widget is added to your blog template while you are adding a custom template to your blog. Therefore you are in a trouble with this template and your readers will see your blog as ugly and untidy blog.

There are two distinct variants of this. That is the duplication of the article column or the duplication of articles in single article column. Simply it is like this if you get a duplicated article column, you will see a template with repeating article in  a following way
Post 1, Post 2, Post 3, Post 1, Post 2, Post 3

Also if you are having a duplicated articles with the single post column you will see it as following
Post 1,Post 1, Post 2,  Post 2,  Post 3, Post 3,

Whatever the way it will not see nice to your readers.
