How to Fix Double Post Problem on My Blog?

I have received so many question about double post issue/problem. Why I get double post on my blog homepage? Why I get double post after changing template? How to fix this double post problem?

Note to all, this problem not because of template. Do you remember, when you change the template, there's an option feature from Blogger, Do you want to delete these widget? If you choose keep widget, all your blog widget keep there. This feature is usefull for keeping widget so you don't need to add it one by one.

But the problem is, when your new template has Blog1 widget, and your current blog has Blog2 widget, it will make a double post. Note that Blog1 or Blog2 is post widget, so it will appear double.

So how to fix this double post problem?

Open Edit HTML, then find this code

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


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

Just delete one of them.

How to Search and Insert YouTube Video On Blog Post

Blogger supports drop-dead easy video-blogging -- if you have a video file, you can just upload it to Blogger. But when it comes to video-blogging, we know a lot of you also choose to embed YouTube videos to your post.

Currently, adding a YouTube video to your post is fairly easy, but it still requires several steps of work: If you don't have the embed code already, you'd have to open a new browser window or tab, go to, search the video, and play the video to make sure it's the right video. Once you copy the embed code, you come back to your Blogger post and manually insert the code in your post.

Blogger just added a new Blogger in Draft feature that makes this process a lot easier. You don't have to open another tab or window; from your post editor, just click the Insert a Video button in the toolbar. In addition to the already existing Upload tab, you'll now see two new tabs: From YouTube and My YouTube videos.

In the From YouTube tab, you can search, browse, and play back YouTube videos all within the interface. If you have your own videos on YouTube, My YouTube videos tab will show them as well.

Once you choose the video, click on Select to insert the video to the post. You’ll then see a thumbnail image for the video, which you can move around in the post by drag-and-drop.

By the way, in case you didn’t know, it’s as easy to add a video to your blog from YouTube as it is to add a YouTube video in Blogger. While you are watching a YouTube video, click “Share” button, and you will see Blogger as one of the places you can share the video to. Click on Blogger, and you’ll see the familiar BlogThis! mini post editor -- all you have to do is to select a blog (if you have more than one blog, that is), fill out some content, and then Publish the post. Enjoy video-blogging!
