I have been using WordPress for my blog. Since for few posts the content description shows with title. So the content duplicates.


My post has title: xxxxxxxx and description: yyyyyy

But its displaying xxxxxxxxyyyyyy. To display the content I have used the_excerpt().

This is happening for few post only.

Please help me to fix.

  • This is the part of displaying description<div class="post_description clearfix"> <?php // Show Content/Excerpt if(boc_blog_full_post_content()){ the_content(); }else { the_excerpt(); } ?> </div>

That's bizarre. The problem may come from broken html/css with different title or desc lengths. Have you checked the admin to make sure these posts actually don't have description in their title? Here is a simple example of showing the title and excerpt in a posts loop.

<?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2> 
    <div><?php the_excerpt(); ?></div>
<?php endwhile; <?
  • the_excerpt() returns the data which has title and description together.
