Two Duplicate Sets of Pages and Page Links (10 posts)

    I have somehow gotten two duplicates of my page links in the main sidebar. There are three pages, and three complete sets of pages and links. When I am in the dashboard on the widgets page, it only shows one set. Can't figure out how to remove the duplicates.

    Thank you

    Remove the widget and see if only the duplicates disappear or all of them do.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I removed them all and put them back one page at a time.

    It is still showing up three times on the live page.

    You should post the link for us to have a look.

    Looks like you're using three different widgets, each one with all links.
    Not sure how you're trying to do it.

    I dragged three "pages" into the Main Sidebar, only three, and named them after three existing pages, only three. As you can see it is showing up in triplicate.

    I have a screen shot but see no way to include it here.

    Thank you.

    That's exactly what I was trying to tell you.
    You dragged the widget Pages three times. That widget shows all pages.
    So, you're showing all pages three times, one for each widget you dragged over to the sidebar.

    To do what you're trying to do, you have two options:

    1. You do a custom menu (just below Appearance--->Widgets, you find Menus), and then drag the Custom Menu widget over to the sidebar.
    2. Each time you drag the Pages widget, you exclude the page IDs you don't want to appear in that widget.

    Perhaps the first solution might be easier.
