Duplication of articles in category blog layout

Post by PhilOSparta » Tue May 10, 2011 1:50 pm

I have a category blog layout with 4 articles. Each article appears twice in succession.
Article 1
Article 1
Article 2
Article 2 etc. for articles 3 and 4.
The blog is set to show one column with 4 articles.

Does anyone have any ideas on this?
I changed the menu type to category article list and each article appears twice in the list also.
I'm not new to Joomla. I've got 25 sites on 1.5 and this site is my 5th on 1.6.

EDIT: Found a work around. Seems to be a bug.
Seems that articles written by super user display twice. Changing article owner to manager eliminates the duplicate listing.

Thanks Phil!

I was banging my head against the desk for a while trying to figure out why this was happening!
