Removing (duplicate) blog posts in Blogger

Tutorial [教程] • 4 SEPTEMBER 2013
Why am I seeing double post?The first and the more common one is duplicate posts columns. The second column looks exactly like the first one, complete with feed link and blog pager. Why is it corrupted? Probably ......caused by the third party template or....


The easiest way to fix this is by 
You would need to add this CSS to the Add CSS box in the Advanced area of the Template Designer. Make sure you back up your template first.

#Blog2
{
 visibility:hidden;
 display:none !important;
}

#Blog10
{
 visibility:hidden;
 display:none !important;
}
 * But it doesn't solve your problem, the post is still there it only HIDE the post. The duplicate post is still in your blog. So I wrote to Google Forum and Chuck Croll helped me out. 

In order to delete the duplicate post permanently follow the instructions and pictures below. 
Edit the blog template HTML, using the dashboard Template Editor, at Template - "Edit HTML". Do not expand any widgets. Look for three widgets (which may or may not be near each other!!!), in the Body of the template:

Duplicate Blog Posts? Remove The Duplicate - Credited to Chuck Croll

<b:widget id='Blog2' locked='true' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog'/>

...

<b:widget id='Blog10' locked='true' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog'/>

...

<b:widget id='Blog1' locked='true' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog'/>

Viewing page source, alternately, we may see:

<div·class='widget·Blog'·id='Blog2'>

...

<div·class='widget·Blog'·id='Blog10'>

...

<div·class='widget·Blog'·id='Blog1'>


Remove the two widgets:

<b:widget id='Blog2' locked='true' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog'/>

...

<b:widget id='Blog10' locked='true' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog'/>


Leaving:

<b:widget id='Blog1' locked='true' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog'/>

Look at Blog2.  Line 1362 shows

<b:widget id='Blog2' locked='true' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog'>

And is followed by all of the content of that widget.  You should be able to click in the column next to "1362", and close the widget.  You would then see

<b:widget id='Blog2' locked='true' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog'/>

See the arrow, next to "1349"?  Click once, on the arrow - and watch as it expands LinkList36.  Click again, to close the widget.

With LinkList36 closed, you can delete line 1349, to remove that widget.

You should be able to do the same, with "Blog2", on line 1362.

Merely deleting line 1362 does not work.  You have to delete the entire widget code set.

<b:widget

...

</b:widget

When the widget is expanded.

Use "Jump to widget", and tell us what widget is listed immediately after "Blog2".

Once you deleted the Blog 2 and Blog 10, save your template.
