    Hey all,
    My website is http://www.blueharlequin.com. I am currently having an issue with the "blog" page. I cannot for the life of me figure out why I have two backgrounds! The rest of my site is perfectly fine.

    Thank you :)

    Try validating the webpage.

    Its only happening because the blog page is a template, the rest I simply stuffed the main content ON the page. Looking at the source code that's generated from the web browser so that I can see if WordPress is throwing in any tags that could be conflicting with my own but I dont see that issue. :/

    can you explain more precisely what you have done?

    possibly re-read the Codex ref for page templates: http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Creating_Your_Own_Page_Templates

    this might fix some the validation errors: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.blueharlequin.com%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0

    in any case, you need to find the cause of and fix those errors: http://codex.wordpress.org/Validating_a_Website

    With the rest of the pages (Home, About, Services etc), I did not create a template page for them. I simply copied & pasted the code and placed it in the input box. (noob mistake?)

    With the blog page, I decided to make it a template page, just to make my life a little bit easier.

    UPDATE:
    It's all cool. Incase anyone runs into this issue i'll explain what I did:

    Remove the meta tags "description", "keywords" & "author". Not too sure which of those three caused the issue but there are wordpress plugins that does them.

    Took me a few days to figure out what was happening!
