    Hi,

    My blog name is duplicated to the right of my title on PAGES and POSTS but is correct on my home (front page).

    I have used the following php

    <title><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> | <?php is_front_page() ? bloginfo('description') : wp_title(''); ?></title>

    I have looked at the codex but for the life of me I can't figure out how to remove the duplication of my blog name!

    Please take a look at my website

    Can anybody help please? much appreciated!

    I can't see anything wrong on your site. Can you clarify, please?

    Hi esmi,

    Sorry, my blog name 'ALB' is showing twice on the title bar of the browser window.

    Take this PAGE for example. It reads 'ALB | AboutALB!'

    I only want the format 'ALB | About'.

    However, it is NOT DUPLICATED on my FRONT PAGE (homepage) which is correct.

    Thanks for you help :)

    Try:

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

    Sorry - my bad. Try:

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

    Thanks esmi you're a star!

    I would also like to show

    bloginfo('description')

    on the front page. How can I achieve this?

    Thanks again!

    bloginfo('name');?>  | <?php bloginfo('description');
    else: wp_title(''); ?></title>

    Thanks for your help esmi,

    But again the code you suggested threw up a syntax error in my header.php. SO NEARLY THERE!

    I did find an interesting article here and I have implemented the code but again my site title is duplicated at the end of my front page, pages and posts titles! e.g About | ALBALB.

    Any suggestions? Thanks again.

    no, I had that kind of problem with Yoast wp SEO plugin, my site name was displayed twice, but I've sorted out that one.

    wvasko, how did you sort it out?

    esmi, yes it's strange I'm stumped!

    Did anyone take a look at this article I mentioned previously?

    I implemented the code from the article but again my site title is duplicated!

    how did you sort it out?

    That was a completely, unrelated, issue.

    Have you actually tried running the updated theme ?

    Ok, in Yoast WP SEO, titles&metas, I've checked first box: "force rewrite titles"

    esmi, my theme is updated to the latest version. Could it be possible that this is a bug in dreamweaver?

    Well, I've gone over and over the last snippet I suggested and I can't see any error in it. Is that code snippet now running on your site? If so, is there anything in your site's error log?

    yes, the snippet you suggested is currently running on my site and now the screen is blank!

    Where can i see my site's error log?

    Thanks

    And wvasko, thanks for your suggestion. If I use Yoast WP SEO I will take that into consideration.

    Ok, I have just enabled 'show php error messages' in my control panel. I'll get back to you when I know.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /customers/9/3/a/adamleeblythe.co.uk/httpd.www/wp-content/themes/fluxipress-child/header.php on line 81

    Line 81 in my header.php is:
