In the blog i see the widgets double.

I used the documentation of silverstripe to add widgets to all the normal pages, but now it's double for the blog page because it's already in their.

How can i solve this? Where in the blog can i take this out?

to remove the duplicate widgets in your blog you have to edit blog/code/BlogHolder.php like this:

If you currently have a blog installed, the widget fields are going to double up on those pages (as the blog extends the Page class). One way to fix this is to comment out line 30 in BlogHolder.php and remove the DB entry by running a /db/build.


class BlogHolder extends Page {
   static $has_one = array(
   //   "SideBar" => "WidgetArea", COMMENT OUT
      'Newsletter' => 'NewsletterType'
   function getCMSFields() {
      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
   //   $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Widgets", new WidgetAreaEditor("SideBar")); COMMENT OUT
