    SEOmoz has shown up a problem on my site with duplicated content - it seems that my 2 posts at http://www.coreheating.co.uk/blog/ are also copied into an archive folder and also an author folder.

    Can anyone shed any light on this please?

    Many thanks, Abi

    WP has its own rel='canonical' automatically added to the head already.

    Also, there are millions of blogs (websites with single/archive), SE understands this kind of thing, if not, then all the blogs in the world would already get penalized.

    OK thanks for your reply, so I shouldnt worry? I was seen some videos about taking out coding in the scripts but is that not necessary? thanks

    No, it's not necessary for us to do anything more, WP already added that code in.

    OK thanks, on the blog page it lists the 2 articles on after another - is there a way of just having a summary of the blog on this page, with links to the full article?

    Thanks, Abi

    Whatever template that you use for your /blog ( I suppose it's a custom page template that display only one category ? ) whatever it is, find this ( actualy code is longer but this is the part that you will notice )

    <div class="entry-content">
    	<?php the_content(); ?>
    	<?php wp_link_pages(); ?>

    and replace it with this

    <div class="entry-summary">
    	<?php the_excerpt(); ?>

    If you are not using a special page template for your /blog then the file you need to do that replace above is content.php ( if you understand the code, just remove the if else endif and retain only the call to excerpt )

    It should go without saying that all modifications must be done via childtheme only.
