    I'm new to WordPress SEO but just got rid of that problem by going to SEO > Titles & Metas in the dashboard. For what it's worth, I checked the first box on that page:
    Force rewrite titles
    WordPress SEO has auto-detected whether it needs to force rewrite the titles for your pages, if you think it's wrong and you know what you're doing, you can change the setting here.

    When I did that, my double titles disappeared.

    I did try to use "Force rewrite title", but it doesn't do anything in my case.

    No worries, would be good to have some support FROM yoast though...

    WordPress version: 3.5.1
    WordPress SEO version: 1.3.4.4

    Insert:

    <title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>

    Make certain two apostrophes - they're not a quotation mark - are inside the parentheses.

    Had the same problem, and the "Force rewrite title" was causing a problem with Kimili Falsh plugin (which I plan to get rid off anyway, but I still can not yet)

    The cleaning solution worked great, thanks.

    Hi there!
    How can you be sure that the ' force rewrite title ' is working correctly? Can you see this in the source code, and what should you expect? It does not change the visable page titel in the browser on top when i checked this function.

    My code looks liks the following:
    -------------

    <?php if ( is_single() ) { ?><?php wp_title(''); ?> | <?php bloginfo('name'); ?><?php } ?>
    		<?php if ( is_page() && !is_front_page() ) { ?><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> | <?php wp_title(''); ?><?php } ?>

    [Please post code or markup snippets between backticks or use the code button. Your posted code may now have been permanently damaged by the forum's parser.]

    -----------
    I have the same problem the page title is the same on the homepage ( http://www.mondomarketing.nl ) and on the blogpage of the website ( http://www.mondomarketing.nl/internetmarketingblog )

    thanks!!

    Hi Guys, I have the same problem, really annoying and cannot get the Website Main Title to appear even though I have selected 'Force Rewrites' and also got this: %%sitename%% | %%title%% in the Posts and Pages title template.

    I have tried editing the header.php file and even tried the following settings:

    <title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>

    <title><?php wp_title(); ?><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></title>

    <title><?php wp_title(); ?></title>

    and still not joy, Disable SEO and it works great, enable SEO and it doesn't!?

    Any ideas?

    It might be easier to help if you could tell what theme your using and pate your original header.
    By the way, have you tried using this :
    <title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>
    with "Force Rewrites" unselected ?

    For anyone using Yoast SEO and YOOtheme:

    I had this very problem using YOOthemes - it looks like my theme company tried to place the blog title code in the header.php (its called head.php on the theme ... inside a folder called warp > systems > wordpress > layouts > head.php) - they basically exported their joomla themes to wordpress so now you can customize WordPress like Joomla, its pretty sick. But I wanted to point out that at first I was pulling my hair out trying to blame the Yoast SEO plugin until I found the following code (SPECIFIC TO YOOTHEME):

    <title><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> <?php wp_title(); ?></title>

    I now change it to the following and it works great:

    <title><?php wp_title(); ?></title>

    Again, this is specific to YOOtheme but I figured I'd contribute my solution because ... well, I absolutely LOVE Yoast's SEO plugin!!!!

    My favorite part about Yoast SEO aside from the customized titles is the ability to remove /category/ from blogs (with the caveat to not have the same category name/slug as a page's name/slug)

    I have also a double title, using SEO by Yoast.
    I am using linguini theme by grandpixel.

    The header.php show me this code:
    <title><?php wp_title('&rsaquo;', true, 'right'); ?><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> &lsaquo; <?php bloginfo('description'); ?></title>

    So If somebody know, how can I fix it, that it will show me just one title, please reply.

    Best regards

    The tip using the force rewrite title helped me on my subpages and posts. But at homepage, were my latests posts are listed, I do have the title still twice. I do not have any intention rewriting the code of my theme, because if it gets updated, I have to do it again – a pain, if I forget it.

    It would be nice, if Joost will update his plugin in short time, because this is the reason for this bug.

    I am not sure your theme will be updated that often... and it's only a quick tweak in the header most of the time.

    And this may also be due to some theme creator that are using special "titles" php no ? Just thinking.

    I noted earlier that at first I was blaming Yoast SEO until I realized my theme had customization in the header.php under titles and that's something outside of this plugin's scope because every theme will be different in it's location of coding. I don't think this plugin has bugs, so much that other themes are incompatible with it; some to a smaller extent, others have deeper code than usual, hence the problems on specific pages only when using the 'force rewrite title'.
