    Hi there,

    I have a small blog for learning photography called IG-Fotografie. I love the Fashionistas template. But after I made the update I got one small recommendation in terms of SEO. Google prefers to have only one clear <h1>.

    The term "Post navigation" was always shown as a second <h1> which I couldn't change in All-in-one-SEO either.

    But now I found out that I had to change in template-tags.php the "Post navigation" from <h1> to <h3>. Now document outlines with Web Developer Toolbar look fine. Maybe this could be changed with next update - otherwise I have to change in manually after every update.

    Cheers
    Lars

    Hello,

    This doesn't really have anything to do with the update because that function has not been modified, nor the template-tags file for that matter.

    That H1 tag to which you refer is meant for screen readers, and as far as I know (although I`m not an expert in SEO), accesibility is gaining more weight with Google.

    Anyway, if you want to change it you could build a child theme. That navigation function is pluggable so you can easily overwrite it from your child theme. Create a functions.php file in your child theme and add this function in it: http://pastebin.com/56TY11FD. It is already modified to use the h3 tag as you said. Now you don't have to worry about updates.
