    Plugin add Site Title to every page/post title:

    Title: "this is my post title >> Site Title".

    My Yoast WordPress SEO settings are correct.
    <title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>
    Force rewrite titles: unchecked
    Post
    Title template: %%title%%

    I think you are talking about the fact that Site Title appears in the browser title bar twice when WordPress SEO is activated. I found this prob today. I found posts mentioning it as far back as DEC10, but nobody has a fix. This is unfortunate since the UI is superb. Yoast has no user forum so there is no way to be certain the author is even aware of this issue. Oh well. The plugin is only in Beta.

    - yes, exactly.
    WordPress SEO is a really good plugin, but on this moment we need his refresh.

    I just noticed this.
    I am having the same problem with the double title + a bunch of other problems.
    Like Page Analysis not working.

    what theme are you using.

    some themes like suffusion have there own meta sections you need to disable this to prevent the title appearing twice.

    ^ How to do that? What PHP files should be tweaked, etc?
    I can speak for my case and I am using a theme from ElegantThemes.

    For example <title><?php wp_title('«', true, 'right'); ?> <?php bloginfo('name'); ?></title>
    bloginfo can be the reason

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    This is the author's G+ page. His contact info is there. You never know, he may already have the answer to this.

    Thanks arni, that's the reason!
    To fix just use:
    <title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>

    This problem occurs when using the twenty-eleven theme, so its not theme specific (or at least, if it is it should have been caught and fixed by now!)
